    Tried to hold off starting another SNES sync thread, spent the day doing research and reading the tips and tweaks thread first, hopefully this is a short one.

    I have a SHVC-CPU-1 (has a sound board you can remove) and its really been fantastic with the OSSC. (at this time is .81 firmware) Using a Samsung 40 inch 10-15 year old led.

    the OSSC is reading 262p with 60.08Hz – Not sure if that actually means it’s getting 60hz as the SNES is supposed to be very jittery and no real 60.

    x1-x3 all work great x4 would randomly cut in and out, but I fixed it by not using the audio firmware or I could just change the TX mode to DVI – basically it was loosing sync due to audio)

    x5 is the last piece I am trying to get working.

    Right out of the gate it was a black screen, but if i Disable “Allow tvp hpll2” the image will flicker in and other randomly, but it is mostly still a black screen. – But when it is up for 1-2 seconds it looks great and does look like the X5 should.

    I randomly tried messing with other settings but can’t seem to get much farther than getting it to flash randomly.

    All my other consoles work on all the x1-x5 modes so I do think it is the jitter issue. Plus I tested on a new samsung 55 4K tv and it takes all the x1-x5 with no issues or playing with settings.

    Would it be worth trying out the dejitter board? I have no problems installing it in myself or is there some obvious setting I am missing.

    Thanks,

    If other consoles are working at 5x then yes I’d say it was worth trying the dejitter if you really love that 5x look.

    I don’t pretend to fully understand why certain 1-5x looks great on some, but not on others – but it is a nice option to have.

    With all my stuff x4 looks great, but it’s less bight on the colors than other x’s.

    I just ordered the board now with the snes firmware – gives me an excuse to bust out a soldering iron.

    I’ll post back with the results. I’m almost certain it’s just the tv/snes combo. The other tv which is 4k does all the 1-5x no problem, but that TV is not up for grabs for retro gaming at the moment lol

    Does this mod introduce some more input lag? 2 frames per hour doesn’t seem like it’s something you would be able to notice with the naked eye or get you killed in a game.

    This is exactly what it was for me before modding. Dejitter solved the issue, all line modes are perfect with the mod.

    .000092593 of a frame difference per second. Think you’ll be able to notice the difference? 😉

    : Thanks for confirming,

    It will always haunt me for the rest of my life, lol – Joking aside, no way.

    A system running a tiny bit slower than reference should not be confused with input lag which is completely different thing.

    Poor wording on my part – Correct, this would not be input lag as it has nothing to do with the response time from the controller to the screen.

    Just an update on this:

    Put the board in and followed the instructions for the board I have and…..

    Yea it works and it’s awesome.

    If there is any kind of slowdown, I can’t tell.
