Seems like a good alternative to SCART BNC setups to keeps in your back pocket

I understand they are custom cables but look at the prices.

I'll buy the Dreamcast one if they ever get around to it. More to simplify my setup than anything. Dreamcast is currently running into a separate card on my 14L5 than the rest of my 480P systems. Getting component would mean everything could go into the same card via a component switch which would be nice.

I mean it's a neat product but you could get a scart to component converter and 2 scart cables for the snes/genesis for less than both cables from there.

They aren't simple cables, that's why they cost what they do. Each cable has a rgb to component transcoder built in. I'm with ballz though, better to just buy an external box that works with everything and just get scart cables.

I have the Genesis Model 2 ones (also X-Eye compatible) and they are excellent. But yes, SCART RGB is the best possible option.

I wouldn't be interested in them now but if my current pvm crapped out, they would be my next option over xrgb mini.

I bought one of each...not going to mess with a PVM or SCART so, I'll take close 2nd over what I currently get over composite. They are working on a Dreamcast cable and trying to source parts for a Saturn cable, so I'm interested in seeing what they can bring to the table.

Let us know how well they do on a hdtv?

Razo, that all depends on the HDTV. They output a clean 240p signal, but do no upscaling. When connected to a HDTV the quality will range from "sort of okay" to "utter shit" depending on how good the scaler on the HDTV is at upscaling 240p content. Many HDTVs don't support 240p at all.

HULKSTER RULES BROTHER

Here is another potential problem with rgb to component ,some HDTVs do not run 240p on the component side (will usually have a blank or flashing screen) without some sort of scaler.

You should really keep pics like that in the War Room, it's really inappropriate in Unrelated.

It doesn't matter War Room or not. You just lost a ton of respect from me. Posting some bull shit picture like that is totally offensive to me. Thousands of people were killed and your making jokes.
