So I’ve been using my OSSC for the last month or so with virtually no issues at all with any console I’ve thrown at it (Wii/PS1/PS2/SNES/Dreamcast/Genesis) and even GCN and N64 with the help of the Koryuu. Now the way that my setup is configured is as follows: I have 4 of my consoles (PS1/PS2/Genesis/SNES) connected via SCART to a Shinybow (6 in/2 out) SCART Switcher, My Wii and Koryuu connected via Component to a Component Switcher, and my Dreamcast via VGA to the SCART/VGA/and component in on the OSSC. Then the output is HDMI to a 1 in/2 out HDMI splitter(powered)one out goes to a HDMI to VGA adapter to my VGA monitor (Where I play the games) and then the other HDMI goes straight into my internal Elgato HD60 Pro capture card to be captured on OBS (which has been flawless since being used). Now fast forward to today. I was streaming and was playing MGS2 for the PS2 and all of a sudden the video signal started cutting out and the audio cut out. So I swapped to my other PS2 and it did the same thing. Then, I thought, ok maybe the CRT is having issues. Took it out of the mix, still the same. So then I removed the HDMI splitter from the chain and just directly connected the OSSC to the HDMI out to my capture card. Same thing. It did it both with my Dreamcast and with PS2. The signal will be fine for like 30 seconds, and then just start wigging out and such. Upon looking at the OSSC it too is losing sync sometimes. I also felt it and it felt incredibly hot. I’m not sure if that’s normal cause I don’t pick it up. I was using it 2 days ago with no issue and nothing changed in my setup. I just got it very recently. Thoughts?
Try a direct scart connection from your PS1/2 to the OSSC, and keep the HDMI splitter removed. Removing the scart switcher from the chain eliminates another potential error source. This review of the Shinybow does report instability Shinybow Review
