Updated my entry for Panasonic set at bottom of page 2.February 17, 2017 at 8:59 AM #11305
@destinydoom I saw your post and tried it for myself. Unfortunately it didn’t work through my Yamaha RX-V377 or my new Onkyo TX-NR656. As of FW 0.76, I can at least use 240p passthrough, with both the TV and receiver recognizing the signal as 240p. Having game audio play through my receiver speakers is nice. Something strange I noticed was that the receiver and TV recognized the signal as 240p when TX Mode was set to DVI, but the receiver recognized it as 480p and the TV as 240p when set to HDMI (which also required tweaking the horizontal sample rate lower to fix an overly-jittery picture). My receiver perceives changes in the horizontal sample rate as changes in resolution. For example, going from 856 to 850 in 240p passthrough changed the signal from “DVI 240p/59” to “1440 x 240p DVI.” Maybe if I keep fooling around with the sampling options, I’ll find a way to get everything working. Unfortunately it’s all pretty foreign to me, so if anyone has any suggestions, please throw them my way.
To reiterate, this was on my Samsung UN50KU6300FXZA 4K accepting HDMI input from an Onkyo TX-NR656. The OSSC is plugged in using a DVI to HDMI cable from Amazon, and the NTSC Mega Drive’s video output is through HDRetrovision’s component cables.February 18, 2017 at 11:31 AM #11362
This is more of a question aimed at @mikeyy00 if he has a chance to see it. I’m leaning on purchasing 55L421U television and was wondering if line x4 and x5 worked?February 19, 2017 at 9:57 PM #11410
Oh, that’s too bad. :/
Not sure if will make any difference, but the last thing I would try in your case is to use a RGB SCART cable instead of the HD Retrovision component. But try to borrow from a friend first, just for test, to avoid spending money in case of unsuccess.February 20, 2017 at 8:15 AM #11416
I think it’s just my TV. The HD Retrovision cables work with the OSSC and 2X/3X (not sure about 4X/5x since I tested before the latest FW) when hooked up to my brother’s computer monitor. Barring some obscure timing tweak I can make with the scaler, a firmware updare from Samsung, or maybe something squirreled away in the TV or receiver’s service menu, I don’t think anything but passthrough will work.February 20, 2017 at 11:42 AM #11420
In response to my previous post asking about the Toshiba 55L421U 1080p TV. I purchased one from Best Buy today and it worked splendidly with line 4x and 5x. Although 5x cut off the screen but there are probably tweaks I can do. It had a dead pixel out of the box so I’m gonna go grab another unit tomorrow.February 20, 2017 at 2:50 PM #11421
@flappyraccoon Very nice! It is normal for the image to be cut off in Lx5 (using 216×5 lines only) in the vertical.February 22, 2017 at 3:16 AM #11449
Panasonic TC-P50S60 .76 Firmware Update:
x3 and x4 working thanks to Harrumph’s tips and tweaks:
need to set V. Active to 256 and V. backporch to 3
Tested with Genesis, SNES, and N64 so far.February 22, 2017 at 12:56 PM #11460
(one of the 2016 4k models)
Passthrough with Dreamcast (PAL, VGA), SNES (PAL) and Mega Drive (PAL and NTSC) works, but the image drops every 10 seconds or so, making it unusable.
Anything from Line2x and up gives either an image shifted downwards by a random (?) amount of lines or a completely glitched image.
I suppose this is actually just a bug in the TV’s software since even the DVDO iScan VP30’s output is not handled right when setting it to 720p or lower.February 22, 2017 at 5:43 PM #11464
Does anyone know if Samsung 2016 UHD KS7005 (UK) KS8005 (US) is supported?February 22, 2017 at 8:21 PM #11466
@donet I would guess not since it’s pretty similar to @destinydoom and mine’s TV, the KU6300. I know that particular model has true HDR as opposed to the KU6300, but I don’t know if that would make a difference with handling the out of spec video put out by the scaler. It can handle 240p/480p over HDMI using the OSSC’s passthrough mode but that’s really it. Barring some obscure timing tweak in the scaler or a miracle FW update to either the TV or OSSC, I’m not sure if it will ever work.
I forgot to mention that destiny got his to work by running the OSSC through his receiver and out to his TV, but I believe his particular receiver is a few years old and has actual scaling for resolutions lower than 1080p. This might not work with a modern receiver because they usually just scale 1080p to 4K or not at all. Either way I couldn’t get mine to accept 1080p (through Line 5X).February 23, 2017 at 4:34 PM #11486
The guy who wrote this article mentioned my TV.
Should I go with the framemeister or hope that my TV accepts the OSSC’s signal? The problem is that I’m not that fond of the input lag the framemeister brings. I’ve heard the framemeister adds like 16ms, plus my TV’s 20. I feel that’s a bit much for platform games like Mega Man etc.
I will do a little more research before I decide.February 23, 2017 at 5:34 PM #11494
He didn’t use it for tests though, just as an example of a low lag TV. The TVs he tested with was a Samsung UE55HU7200 and a Philips 42PFL6008K. Both seemed to handle x3 mode, so thanks for the link anyway, I’ll add them to the list! 🙂March 7, 2017 at 2:15 PM #11688
Thread now stickied! Keep the reports coming.March 15, 2017 at 3:39 PM #11820
All SCART based consoles (Saturn, PS1 etc) –> GSCARTSw –> OSSC –> DVI to HDMI cable –> TV
TV – PANASONIC LCD L37S2OBA.
Line x3 – NO
Line x4 – NO
Line x5 – NO
As a side note, this TV also will not accept a PAL PS1 signal via OSSC. It’s a fussy beast I’m coming to find out.
TV – SAMSUNG LCD LE19C450E1W
Line x3 – YES – Tested with NTSC1 Panzer Dragoon Saga for Saturn.
Line x3 – NO – Tested with PAL Micro Maniacs for PS1.
Line x4 – NO
Line x5 – NO
More extensive testing is required of course, but in general, I find the Panasonic TV above to be quite fussy.
