After some month of research I am about to get my own OSSC. But before purchasing it I have some final questions.
I know that some TV won’t work with all modes the OSSC has to offer. I could not find anything about the compability of my Panasonic 4K TV yet. So I can just hope that I am lucky and won’t face any Problems.
Is there the possibilty that the OSSC won’t work at all with some TVS? Or is the main deal of the compability Problem that some Display modes of the OSSC won’t work on all TVS?
I would expect line 2x for 240p and 480i to 480p to work fine, so you should be able to use at least that; whereas Line 3x/4x/5x seems to be a crapshoot. Supposedly, 4K TVs in general are more flexible in what they support, and have a much better chance of supporting Line 3x/4x/5x than 1080p displays; and, even then, you may run into issues with the NES and SNES, which are known to have jittery sync signals that modern digital displays can’t handle. You probably won’t know what your TV supports until you get an OSSC and try it out.
Support may also depend on the model and/or region of TV you have. For example, TCL TVs sold in the US are reported to work fine with Line 3x/4x/5x, but the TCL TVs sold in Europe are entirely different. You may also find that some models from a given manufacturer will work fine, while others from that same manufacturer will not.
If you do decide to get an OSSC, be sure to share your TV’s model number and your findings in the display compatibility thread.
Ok thanks a lot for your reply. That sounds promising. Well after many month of research It is certain that i get the OSSC. The only question is when I get .It seems it is the best choice for my consoles (Saturn, Dreamcast, and the Gamecube).
When I got my OSSC I will post the infos in the display Thread for sure.
ps: Does anybody know if there is a upgrade planned for the OSSC in the near future, or is OSSSC 1.6 the definitive version to go that won’t change in the foreseeable future?
I think only marqs is qualified to answer that, but I’m not aware of any planned hardware changes–only planned changes to the firmware to hopefully free up resources for more features and/or functionality.
