    Most disappointingly, my new OSSC does not appear to work with the SNES on my 2015 Vizio M65-C1 television. I get picture but no sound (actually, there are intermittent periods of partial audio output, but it’s essentially mute). This was tested both with the HDMI audio add-in board as well as going through the 3.5mm audio jack. Also, depending on what line multiplier setting is used, the video occasionally cuts out for a second or two before coming back.

    On my BenQ SW2700PT monitor, everything seems to work well!

    Looks like I will be sticking with the composite input of my DLP-600W mini projector for my big-screen gaming needs.

    That’s surprising, I’ve got a 2015 M70-C3 (exact same series, just a larger size), and I’ve been quite pleased with its compatibility.

    I don’t think TV compatibility should affect audio, are you able to get sound from anything else? At least on a stock OSSC, the 3.5mm jack is a direct passthrough of the SCART port’s audio; the OSSC doesn’t even need to be powered for it to work. Is it possible that there might be an issue with the SCART cable or your HDMI audio mod?

    On the video side, how often are you seeing drops with your SNES, and on what firmware? I’ve very occasionally seen some for x3 and x4 with 0.76 on my M70-C3, but they were on the order of less than once per hour.

    Samsung/LG still the best bet for an OSSC TV? Anyone in UK/Ireland got any suggestions for a new 40+ inch 1080p or 4K TV that’s compatible with 5x mode on OSSC?

    Not looking to spend mega money, just something decent with low enough lag.

    Depends on what you mean by “low enough lag” 😉

    Reporting an update for the Samsung KS8000 line (mine is the 55″) now that I heard about the new firmware. Works great now on 2x-5x, the only thing wrong as far as I can tell is SNES on 5x. 2-4x appears fine but 5x will temporarily lose sync once a minute or two.

    Haven’t played for a long period of time so I’ll post another update if another problem comes up

    Looks like the Samsung KS7000 was one of the best bang for buck 4K gaming TV in 2016….seems very hard to find now though. Anyone know if the newer 2017 TV’s are of similar caliber? I’m talking about the UK models btw.

    Ended up ordering a 55″ Samsung KS7000 here in Ireland (KS8000 in the US), picking it up on Saturday.

    Judging by GigaTortoise it works well in all modes with the new 0.77 firmware? I hope it works! This TV was pretty expensive :/

    @olsenn Sound issues don’t make sense really if it works with another monitor. To get sound from the 3.5 jack, you should set TX to DVI mode. Maybe you should make a thread and get some feedback from Bucko and/or Marqs on this issue. Also, would be good if you can confirm if this was on 0.77 firmware.

    @aethersmyth Would be cool if you could report back after trying 0.77 FW also, since it fixed some problems for the Samsung, maybe better results can be had with that Vizio as well?

    @eric90000 Good luck on your new Samsung set! 🙂 I’d be extremely surprised if it didn’t work with 0.77 FW, as others have reported.

    @harrumph Will do when I get the chance, I’ve just been a little pressed for time recently. I’ve also been following a possible lead on a PVM from a local broadcast station, so hopefully I’ll be able to confirm this series’ reputation for low lag for myself.

    So lastnight I briefly tested the ossc with my new Samsung KS7000 (ks8000 in the US). All modes seem to display, but line x5 mode is having a really hard time keeping sync, its dropping out every few seconds. Only tested a Japanese Mega Drive so far. Any settings I can tweak to help it keep sync? It’s a really nice TV by the way!

    @gigatortoise, I’d be interested to hear how your ks8000 is going with all your consoles in 5X mode?

    I just updated to 0.77 and now l2x-l5x works for my TV (Samsung un46c6300sf). Oddly enough on 0.76 lx4 was stable but not Lx5 but they’re now reversed on 0.77. Lx5 works with just a few tweaks. I had to set the lpf to 33mhz, hpll2x pretty Coast to 0 and disable the setting that most people have to disable for Lx5 to stabilize (the name escapes me at the moment). Every now and then the screen shakes for a brief second but it is very infrequent. I also had to change my aspect ratio to “fit on screen” in the TV settings as the default 16/9 left me with a box shaped image that was too large for the screen. Also, despite it not being listed as a compatible resolution for my TV 1920×1200 also displays a picture. It is 16 by 9 letter boxed but fills more of the overall picture than 1920×1080. I still prefer 1920×1080 though. It looks more natural.
