    The 55TV60A is compatible with 2x by default (no adjustments needed on TV nor on OSSC).

    5O use 3x/4x modes, you need to follow the tips from Harrumph in this thread: https://videogameperfection.com/forums/topic/tips-tweaks-lx3-lx4-lx5-modes/

    Its been over a year since I used the OSSC on my VT60 so I can’t recall the adjustments. But they are definitely listed in the linked thread. The picture quality is awesome (2nd only to OLED imo) in 2x 3x and 4x on the VT60, but I have uneven wear on mine due to too much OSSC use (even with careful warming up of the screen and at least 100 hours of scrolling bar use) so I just use CRT for retro these days.

    Panasonic TH-55FZ950U
    Same as Marqs’ report for EZ950, works with 2x with default settings and 3x requires various tweaks to sampling settings. 4x and 5x don’t work.

    Samsung QN55Q8F. Just got this today. I only have my SNES running through the OSSC but it looks, and works, amazingly.

    TV: Samsung QN55Q8F
    Console: SNES 3-chip model. (De-jitter mod installed).
    HDMI Switch: ViewHD VHD-UHD4X1A 4×1 HDMI switch with optical audio breakout cable.
    OSSC Settings: All modes work, including 5x. I still need to fine tune the settings, but this is jaw dropping.

    Hey, people, long time lurker, first time poster. I’ve been thinking of picking up a 4k TV and have been leaning toward LG as their newer models seem to be pretty friendly with all of the OSSC modes. My current Sony, which is a flagship from 2011 doesn’t like anything other than 2x, even after following the tweaking guide.

    Anyone have any guesses on this badboy? LOL!

    Just looking at this on the first page from when I reported this

    UE50MU6120KXXU | Lx3: Y* | SNES: Y | Lx4/5: Y*/Y | Steo *Lx3 needs tweak for 50Hz source, Lx4 does not work with 50Hz.

    Just in case anyone does have a TV similar to this one, this in theory should get you Lx4 in PAL as 1080p 50Hz https://videogameperfection.com/forums/topic/expand-vertical-active-area/#post-23848

    For the Panasonic EX700, I should also mention that SNES Lx2 only works in 50Hz (forced 16:9), but not Lx2 60Hz. The image just keeps losing sync in Lx2 at 60Hz (only for SNES 60Hz). However, SNES works fine in Lx3 at 60Hz using that same tweak from marqs for 1366×768.

    Also, even though it’s an older set, the Samsung UE22D5003BW works the same as the above Samsung set I reported. It works with all modes in 60Hz. Passthrough, Lx2, Lx3, Lx4 and Lx5. At 50Hz you can get Passthrough, Lx2 and Lx5, but with the use of tweaks you can get Lx3 in 720p50 and Lx4 in 1080p50.

    If I were you I’d consider the TCL R617 (Best Buy: R615). $500 cheaper but pretty much as feature rich, and has VA panel instead of IPS. Input lag was also comparable at pretty much 1 frame in game mode. Previous reports regarding OSSC compatibility have been very favourable.

    Any recommendations for a current 4K TV in the UK, compatible with all modes of the OSSC? Ideally good bang for your buck!

    Are you looking for anything special in particular and a certain size? A TV with a VA panel would have better contrast and black levels, but worse viewing angles. An IPS will have much better viewing angles but at the expense of contrast/black levels.

    Nothing crazy, just after a decent 4k display mainly for use with the OSSC… So main concern is compatibility with all modes. Size probably somewhere between 40 and 55 inches. Stuff like 10-bit panel and HDR would be handy for future proofing I guess. I haven’t looked at TV’s in a while…. Any good deals? Wonder how those UK TCL TV’s handle the OSSC.

    The 55 inch version of the Hisense U7A is a really good deal for £600, but the only thing is there’s no guarantee it will work as it’s not on the list.

    There’s the Samsung NU7100 which in theory should work as it’s the newer model of the MU6100 I had, which works on all modes. That’s only an 8-bit panel though and if you want a set that can handle HDR properly it would probably cost you near £1000.

    If you don’t mind buying from Amazon you could still get a Samsung MU6120 which would definitely work with all modes as I have tested it. The 43 inch version is £400 and the 55 inch version is £650. That’s only if you don’t care too much about HDR though.

    That’s actually pretty impressive for such an affordable set. I only checked the thread an hour or so after my post, so I missed your reply.

    I ended up going with the LG SK9000 65″

    And I’m quite happy to report that along with a gorgeous picture, all of the OSSC’s line modes are supported.

    2x, 3x, 4x and 5x work terrific with the Genesis, PS1, Sega Saturn, and the SNES works perfectly with 2x and 3x and will also do 4x and 5x, but has an occasional dropout when using 4x and 5x. But, it’s great 90% of the time. I have a suspicion that it can be fixed by tinkering around with the timings in the OSSC menu. Still, this TV will do it all and looks amazing, minus the small hiccups with the SNES.

    At 5x. Please, excuse the crap cellphone pic.

    Alright I got two more displays to bring up. 240p and 480i modes tested on PS1. 480p modes tested on Dreamcast.

    First is my ASUS VX238H.

    240p:
    1x – no
    2x – yes
    3x – yes
    4x – yes
    5x – no

    480i:
    1x – yes
    2x – yes
    3x – no
    4x – yes

    480p:
    1x – yes
    2x – yes

    720p passthrough works fine
    1080i passthrough and 2x work fine.

    Next is my Mom’s Toshiba 50L2200U

    240p:
    1x – yes
    2x – yes
    3x – yes
    4x – no (displays it for a second or two then gives an unsupported video signal error, sometimes only the audio plays)
    5x – only in 1920×1080 format, 1600×1200 and 1920×1200 shows same issue as 4x

    480i
    1x – yes
    2x – yes
    3x – no (same issue as 240p4x)
    4x – no (same issue as 240p4x)

    480p
    1x – yes
    2x – no

    720p passthrough works fine
    1080i passthrough and 2x work fine.

    Don’t have a SNES so I can’t test those.

    These are on stock settings. Using optimal timing settings does effect output on the Toshiba (mainly in the 240p modes).
