I recently purchased an OSSC and so far very impressed with my purchase. I’ve heard that some people are using the OSSC in tandem with the Framemeister, and I just wondered what settings I should use on the Framemeister?July 26, 2018 at 9:22 PM #22615
That would depend entirely on what exactly it was you were trying to achieve. For most use cases there’s really very little point running OSSC through the Framemeister.July 26, 2018 at 9:56 PM #22616
Sorry, should have been a little more detailed!
So, I’ve seen a few people use both for 480p sources, using the OSSC in 2xLine mode (for 960p) and then feeding that through to the Framemeister to resolve that into a 1080p output.
Also, feeding it through the Framemeister would also give me a little control more over zooming/scaling.
Basically, I’m trying to experiment and see what the best approach to capturing footage (currently using a HD60S, but I understand the Elgato Cam Link gives better results?)July 27, 2018 at 11:22 AM #22618
Yes, it’s quite common to use something like a FM or DVDO as a bridge between OSSC and a capture device. FM will accept the 960p signal and ‘normalise’ that to something that will display on pretty much all HDTVs or capture cards. You get a 20ms input lag penalty but that hardly matters for capture.July 27, 2018 at 12:11 PM #22619
Yeah, that’s the plan.
I had a crack at it this morning, so I’ve got a Wii outputting at 960p to the Framemeister (2xLine mode). The Wii is set to 480p, widescreen.
I’ve taken the default Framemeister profile, tweaking the sharpness, using Picture processing mode and Smart x1 mode. So far, it looks pretty good.
However, I wonder if there are any other Framemeister settings I’ve missed, that someone would recommend?July 29, 2018 at 9:36 AM #22643
I think FirebrandX played with the combo a little bit, but I can’t find anything on his site.November 14, 2018 at 4:02 AM #23730PoeskasParticipant
I would like to know this as well. Wonder if it could help with sync issues with the SNES?November 14, 2018 at 6:38 AM #23731FBXParticipant
I don’t recall exactly what I did as it’s been a while since I even used the Framemeister, but feel free to check out the Dreamcast + Toro Box + OSSC Framemeister profile I made:
I believe it used HDMI1 input and I was able to dial in a perfect integer scale on it from the 960P source. I even made a comparison picture showing the difference between straight into the Framemeister and then using the OSSC to line double to 960P into the FM’s HDMI port:November 17, 2018 at 11:45 AM #23776
I’m so interested into this since I already have both devices… For me the PS1/PS2 looks better on the Framemeister and my SNES/Megadrive looks sooo crisp on the OSSC… I just downloaded the Firebrand new OSSC profiles but there is not one for the PS1 right? Is the one I’m having more troubles with on the OSSC since the 5x line mode doesn’t shows on my Samsung QLED8C, appreciate some help, thanks!
Also just bought the EON GCHD adapter and maybe plug it directly to the TV is the best option?November 17, 2018 at 4:20 PM #23781
I think GCVideo might benefit from an additional scaler; I’m not sure I’d be keen to run it through an OSSC, because you’d have to convert to analog instead of keeping it digital, but, if your TV can take a 960p image, that will probably look better than letting your display scale the 480p output from the GCHD.November 18, 2018 at 12:05 PM #23803
I’ve tried it with GCDual and it looks pretty awesome.November 20, 2018 at 12:08 PM #23827
But the EON adaptor I have only has a HDMI out so it’s impossible to plug it to an OSSC right?November 20, 2018 at 3:47 PM #23835

Directly to all hardware revisions of the OSSC to date, yes; however, you can get a Tendak or Portta active HDMI to VGA adapter to connect it to AV3.November 20, 2018 at 5:05 PM #23838
Without any loss? Didn’t know it, thanks 😉November 20, 2018 at 9:56 PM #23849
It depends on what you mean by loss. By going from digital to analogue, you’re potentially losing an insignificant amount of fidelity (which can be exacerbated by poorly-shielded cabling), and the OSSC needs to then sample and interpret the analogue signals, converting back to digital; but a good-quality converter and shielded cables will mitigate quality loss from the digital->analogue->digital conversion. If the OSSC had a digital input, then you wouldn’t lose anything; but the hardware design to date doesn’t have anything like that.
