    I recently got the ossc but the PS1 games I play come up all green, is my montor just not compatible or is it a hardware defect? would it be better to use a dvi to dvi cable or a dvi to hdmi cable. oh and sometimes when its on it shows those boxes which aren’t green so would that mean there isnt anything wrong with the hardware its just my monitor that sucks.

    Which console are you using and what cable are you connecting it with? It doesn’t matter which dvi cable you use. Which boxes do you mean?

    I’m using a euro scart cable from retro_console_accessories and it’s a ntsc psone. the boxes are grey and white like a test pattern.

    I can only see the picture of the test card, show us a picture of your PS1?

    Thanks… Hmm that is odd, and you say you’re using a PS One console? Is the PS1 the only console you’ve tried or have you tried others? Have you tried another monitor?

    I get the same thing with the PS2 and a different scart cable. I have another display so Ill see how if it works with that once its free.

    It was green on the plasma tv as well. so its a hardware defect?

    It’s certainly looking that way. It would be worth trying a different source other than Playstations just to be 100% sure, but if you don’t have anything handy we’ll sort out a return/exchange for you. Do you still have your order number handy?

    everything else is hdmi. I’ve got the tracking number I must’ve deleted the order number email because I can’t find it.

    It’s working fine now the picture is amazing the colours at least to my eye are spot on, linedouble mode works and linetriple works, although with linetriple it sort of quivers across the middle, its more noticeable in 320×240 optim. This is the case with the two displays I tried it on. What setting could I change to eliminate that?

    Good to know you got the replacement unit. You can try playing with the sampling phase and low pass filter options, but it may not be possible to eliminate that wobble/quiver entirely with all sources. This is true on other scalers too (on the Mini, for instance, this kind of interference often manifests as picture noise).

    I had a similar problem with my PS2. Component looked perfect but RGB through SCART was green. So Bucko told me to go into the PS2’s system configuration and change it from YPrPb to RGB. This fixed the issue.

    Next, 480p mode didn’t work, the OSSC simply said “NO SYNC” and the screen was blank (black). Bucko told me to manually change the OSSC into RGsB mode when the PS2 outputs 480p (press the input button to cycle to it). Now 480p looks perfect!

    I hope this information saves someone else from looking like the fool like I did. :$
