    Hello everyone! I’m new here and a recent adopter of the OSSC.

    I’m having trouble getting the OSSC to work with my Xbox One (launch model) in 480i in the Line3x (laced) mode. It just won’t accept that picture at all.

    I’m routing it through my Xbox One because A) it allows me to capture footage through my Elgato HD60S, and B) My 4KTV (a Panasonic TH-55FX800Z) doesn’t support the OSSC set to any output at all. I’m using a PAL PS2 Slim (SCPH-70002) with Component Cables, although I do have a SCART cable on the way. Are there any solutions to this issue?

    My understanding is that the maximum resolution the Xbox One’s HDMI input can handle is 1920×1080. While, I believe, the data throughput of line3x 480i would be equivalent to 1920x720p, and the resultant, deinterlaced image would be 1920×1440, and I find it likely that the Xbox One has no idea what to do with either of these, because neither is a standard video mode.

    You may have better luck with line4x, which would be a bob-deinterlaced 960p, or, if you don’t like bob deinterlacing or the Xbox One doesn’t like 960p, you should set 480i to passthrough and let the Xbox One deinterlace (and scale, if it does that).

    If you absolutely need 480i line3x to work, you’ll need to get a secondary video processor, like the Extron DSC 301 HD or DSC HD-HD, to pair with the OSSC. I have a DSC 301 HD, and it works great with 480i line3x from my NTSC TEST PS2. Just be sure to configure the scaler to output 1080p at either 50Hz or 60Hz, and your Xbox One should have no trouble recording the result.

    Okay, thanks! The “bob” options do work on the XBO, but I was hoping to take nice screenshots this way and the results are of course quite chunky as far as the pixels go. Passthru works as well, however the XBO blurs the results like any old TV so I prefer not to use that option. I want pixels so sharp you can cut diamonds with ’em!

    So it sounds like the secondary video processors are my best option here.

    Bumping this thread for a sort of Part 2. Got the Extron HD-HD in, but it doesn’t like it when I send a 576 signal to it that isn’t 3x (bob), so I can’t see the non-bob options. Anyone able to assist?

    This doesn’t make sense to me. Line2x and 4x are bob-only, while passthrough and Line3x are laced-only. There are no 3x bob or 2x or 4x laced settings.

    Oops, yes I meant 4x (bob). My bad.
