Video: Cables, switchers, hdmi converters, scalers, and others.
If you want to play NTCS games on your PAL console, you will need an RGB cable
Futhermore it will increase the picture quality
Some PAL consoles doesn't support RGB without modification, example:
Nintendo 64: you will need an RGB mod
Playstation 1: you wil need to install a dual frequency oscillator, or an xstation which already have one integrated
There are a lot of type cables for the old consoles, and only some of them support RGB example:
CSYNC: Perfect signal - can be dangerous - compatibilty issues. Sync on Luma: Almost perfect - less compatibilty issues.
Not all consoles support all types of cables, and all types of sync for example Super Nintendo PAL doesnt support csync and you can damage your console.
In adition some scalers, switchers, or TVs doesnt support Csync or Luma, please check your setup before purchase a cable.
Before purchase cable think about the posible sync and cable type if you planing to get a SWITCHER and or SCALER there are compatibility considerations,
some switchers can or not support some sync and are designed for one or more types of input, the same think with SCALERS.
Suppose that you want to purchase high quality RGB cables for your console.
If you have many consoles, its a good idea to put them together to a SWITCH and connect the SWITCH to your TV. More info about switches
They detect which console is turned on
Need a power supply (you can connect them to the TV if your TV have a usb with power)
HIDRA - SCART: (not recommended)
Doesnt come with power supply
Its very easy to break it if you dont use it correctly, example disconect the scart cable while the switch its on XD
Not possible to purchse to official seller since its discontinued
Try to find it on ebay or somewhere
Now you have your all your consoles with high quality RGB cable and your SWITCHER to your TV
But your TV its very moderm and :
A: doesnt allow your old input - You can purchase a HDMI converter, it just convert to HDMI but doesnt increase the quality and usully they just dont work and may add LAG/LATENCY when output.
B: your TV doesnt allow old input (scart, composite etc) and its 4k so even with a converter the image looks so blurry because of the console resolution its too small even not compatible since minimum may be 400x600.
Then you may want to add a SCALER to your setup
convert old input to new hdmi standar.
Add lag/latency but not much, depending of the model.
Scale the image so increase the resolution and quality.
Process the image to increase quality.
Avalaibility : usually stock its 0.
Cost: expensive but its more expensive to purchase and install hdmi mod even more if you own many consoles.
Add lag/latency. if you are a pro player of a fighthing game like Tekken you will not like not even 0,1 of lag.
Compatibility issues: for example the scaler must be compatible with: input of your console example EURO SCART, and with the SYNC (Csync , Luma).
NO SUPPORT! : usually creators of these mods will not have an open chanel to comunicate with, and even if you search the mon twitter (where they're active) they reserve the right of answer you, even if you're a customer :).
Because of compatibility, actually I dont know if its possible to do this setup:
Obiously I tried to get support but no answer hehe, so when I test will update this article.
