    Do I have to save profiles or settings for them to keep after a restart?

    I am new to OSSC, just got it hooked up and notice it reverts any settings I make after I turn it off. Do I need to put in a SD card and do I have to save my settings manually?

    You do not need an SD card, but you need to save.
    Please read the wiki.

    You need to setup everything first
    Then go into “settings opt” menu and save the profile with “save profile” (you can choose up to 15 slots I think)
    The you can use the “link prof->input” option. So the “link profile” is the profile currently open (it should say “<used>” on the load/save option) that you can link to a specific input.

    For instance,
    profile 0 is linked to input AV2 RGsB
    profile 1 is linked to input AV3 YPbPr
    etc

    From now on, when you use the AV2 with RGsB, the OSSC will automatically load the profile 0

    If you want, you can use the AV2 with RGsB and manually load another profile.

    For instance, your profile 0 and 1 can be used for the same console and/or input but for two different purposes.

    Also, profiles save more than you might think. If the console you’re using uses 2 resolutions (let’s say 240p and 480i), you don’t have to manually change the profile while playing. In your “Output option” menu, each line will be saved in your profile. So you can choose to use 240p x5 and 480i x4 at the same time, in the same profile. You don’t have to make two profiles because there are multiple resolutions in a single game.

    (I hope I’ve explained it right, I’m French so it’s clearer in my head. Also, I got the OSSC since last week, you’ll see it’s not that complicated)

    You guys rock, I got it up and running. I had read the wiki but it was so late that my brain wasn’t functioning too well.

    Lastly, since I am using the same input for my NES/SNES/PS2 (I am using SCART and component switchers before the OSSC, so everything is going through AV2 component).

    This means that my settings for NES and SNES and PS2 etc are all going to be the same. Is there a fast way to switch profiles with the remote for when I am running each console? What do most people do?

    (I have NES and SNES going to SCART switch, then that going into a scart audio breakout and then into a scart to component (no audio that’s why I need the breakout before it) – that then goes to my component switch which then goes to the OSSC and lastly HDMI to the monitor)

    Thanks again for the help.

    Yes, there is ! Press the “10+ –/-” (named “profile load”) button on the bottom left corner of the remote control then the number of the profile you want (between 0 and 9 only)

    Sweet! When you save a profile does it save all video modes settings or just the active one?
    Just realized that earlier you said each signal is diff anyway so the PS2 would have it’s own settings.

    It’s based on the signal source/resolution – so my NES and SNES would use the same profile (both 256p or whatever it is)

    I didn’t see that 10+ referenced in the wiki so thanks again! Being new sucks. I remember my Framemeister being overwhelming and I hated that I needed profiles but this should be farely simple to setup each profile.

    Let’s assume you have a PS1 which outputs 480i on the dashboard screen and 240p during gameplay. You can have 1 profile for both of these scenarios.

    Let’s say you want your tv to de-interlace the 480i by itself and the 480p in 5x mode, you set up the 480i on “Passthrough” mode and the 480p to 5x. So you would just need one profile to take care of those because those are different modes (480i and 240p)

    Basically, you can use a single profile for different outputs/consoles as long as those outputs or consoles are different from one another. You have those available :
    240/288p mode
    384p mode
    480i/576i mode
    480p/576p mode
    960i/1080i mode

    Let’s assume you have a Dreamcast (480p), a SNES (240p) and a Xbox (480i), then you can use a single profile.
    240/288p mode : x4 for your SNES
    384p mode
    480i/576i mode : Bob x4 for your Xbox
    480p/576p mode : x5 (1920×1200) for your PS1
    960i/1080i mode

    But if you have a PS1 that needs to go through a capture card that doesn’t accept 1920×1200 and you want to use this mode on your tv, then you have two options :
    -Change the setting each time you want to use your capture card
    -Make another profile

    PROFILE 1:
    240/288p mode : x4
    384p mode
    480i/576i mode : Bob x4
    480p/576p mode : x5 (1920×1200) for your PS1 on your TV
    960i/1080i mode

    PROFILE 2:
    240/288p mode : x4
    384p mode
    480i/576i mode : Bob x4
    480p/576p mode : x5 (1920×1080) for your PS1 with the capture card <— here is the difference
    960i/1080i mode

    I hope it makes sense. ANd of course, you can have a profile (or more) for each system if you so choose. But if all your consoles share the same outputs (say 240p) then you can combine all of them under a single profile.
