    This little board is awesome, really cannot fault the THS7314 for its ability to amplify analogue video. The thing I have noticed, however, is that it doesn’t play that nicely with the 32X. The 32X does work, but the graphics that the 32X overlays on top of what is rendered by the Mega Drive are shifted over to the left by one pixel. I cannot for the life of me work this out. I initially thought it was a sync problem, so I wired up the stock sync again and disconnected the sync output from the board, but still the same problem. Tried swapping parts out of my RGB cable and onto the board, same issue. Completely clueless.

      Interesting observation, I’ll look into that further.

      • Nick Andrews says:

        Did you get a chance to look into this?

        • BuckoA51 says:

          So far no, no other reports, but we’ve only sold a handful of bypass amps. Could you take a screenshot?

          • Ant says:

            could remove the 75ohm resister on the sync on the board see if that helps

            • Nick Andrews says:

              I already have mate, I’m running the stock sync from the Mega Drive without running it through the board. Though, to my understanding, all the board does is attach a pull-up resistor to the sync line and then through a cap and resistor that would normally be in the SCART head.

                I would assume this is due to the filter the THS 7314 applies to the image. Try using the THS 7316 instead since it’s filterless. I use the THS 7316 on my SNES mini RGB bypass and when I apply the low pass filter through the OSSC you can see the image move to the right by a few pixels.
