  1. My mate spent £600 on a 4k tv thinking you can game on it
    Now he’s crying about input lag lol
    Only 1080p works for gaming don’t listen to this man selling TVs

  2. Question, Try said that he uses an LG OLED TV for gaming. I assume he watches a lot of 4:3 content from the retro consoles through the OSSC. Won't this cause "burn In" in the long run? Any one has experience with OLED TV and 4:3 content? I just bought an OLED TV and didn't think about that. Thanks!

  3. All modern consoles look correct on my TV and capture card when they're set to limited range. But the Framemeister looks washed out with grayish blacks on both when I change it to limited range (using firebrandx profiles). Is this normal or am I missing something?

  4. I'm so confused, If I play all my Playstation (PS1, PS2, PS3) games through my fat PS3 (and because the output is 1080p) I just need an upscaler to upscale the 1080p signal to 4k for a 4k TV and I'm good to go, right?

    Or can I just play without an upscaler, how will that effect PS1/PS2 games on a 4k screen?

  5. Hey Try, did you ever lag test your Denon? The one I tried last year added 1 frame of lag to everything. Hope yours doesn't have this issue.

  6. Great video! Answered a few question i had about starting to get into retro consoles and connecting them to modern TVs. One game i spotted at the 39:45 mark, Could you please let me know what that is? I swear it seems like one i used to play in arcades as a kid but i cant fully recall it! Thank you!

  7. About that “Limited vs Full” thing, I did notice that when I had a PS3, and switched to “full” range, it looked more colorful. Any idea what I had configured wrong on my TV? (It’s an LG TV from 2014)

  8. Hope this video gets a HDMI 2.1 update lol. These 2019 and newer Samsung/LG TVs really bridged the gap between TVs and dedicated gaming Monitors and a little more in some areas.

  9. noting if you are hooking up to a modern display within the hdmi 2.0 you may require a hdmi 1.3/1.4 spec switch connected to a capture card of the same spec as it may not function as intended on capture cards rated to 4k..
    noting if you want 1080 progressive scan on consoles you will likely be needing a dvdrom upgrade, the default options supplied could only interlaced because the hardware itself only I can't comment on ps2 games on cd and dvd via hdmi in the capacity of 1080p..
    i think 1080p could of been supported by the ps2 though the limitations of of matsushida dvdroms most likely killed 1080p due to this limitation..
    Progressive scan was hardly supported entry level dvd players and typically where supported you were paying $500-1,500 for this use…
    I suspect the best resolution you will likely see from nintendo is going to be 720i/p from all consoles that support multi output connection mileage might vary in NTSC regions in terms of s-video resolutions
    I do not know whether or not there is a capacity to upgrade existing xbox and xbox 360 consoles to support 1080p playback
    and the biggerr question I have is what are we going to use for long term game storage because looking at a complete catalog of xbox-xboxone on either xbone one or on series x and ps1-ps4 pro on ps5 or even on ps4 pro what because 1-4TB isn't going to be enough external storage my question is will nex gen and current gen consoles support raid via USB connection???

  10. You can't even guess the intermediate option on the Xbox 360? It's in the middle so you should consider it 8-245 to accommodate for close to Full RGB gaming and Limited RGB streaming on Netflix or Hulu where I watch Yu Yu Hakusho, awesome ENG DUB anime on Hulu by the way, Hulu users on Xbox 360 like me, check it out. Or if you don't have Hulu or streaming, Purchase/Download 720p 6.8mbps VC-1 encoded by Microsoft movies or TV shows. Though could someone tell me what codec and bit rate the 5.1 audio's encoded in for Xbox 360 sake. I don't have a VSX receiver for WMA Pro you know, just AC3/DTS soundbar.

  11. Yeah I'm in the market for a 1080p PASSIVE 3D DISPLAY! Why the crap aren't Qled, Uled, and ESPECIALLY XLED used for any 1080p TVs whatsoever? I can hardly find a Passive 3D TV on eBay period. And yes, passive not active otherwise the Xbox 360 will NOT be happy. Sonic Generations isn't designed for active solutions you know, I also have 3D blu rays to transcode into Xvid-720p+AC3-640kbps Dual Layered DVD+Rs in Polarized 3D for my darn Xbox 360 Media Console who can't get it's File Containers straight according to Microsoft's specs.

  12. These videos are incredible and timeless. I've watched most of them multiple times as I set up my game room.
    Thank you both for all the hard work and effort you put into these

  13. This channel and the videos overall are so awesome and informative! I typically think of myself as pretty knowledgeable when it comes to tech stuff, but videos like this make me realize I still have stuff to learn haha

  14. as always overwhelmingly informative. You guys are awesome. So as I watched the part of the video where you spoke about upgrading your receiver it made me chuckle as I am still using a Pioneer Elite (Pre-HDMI) that I purchased in 2004, so I plan to purchase a modern one soon.. Denon and Anthem are on my radar. Anyhow, to this point I have been playing all my retro game systems on a 27 Sony CRT. As for modern TV, my Samsung Q6FN took a dump so I am in the market for a new 4k TV.. I am looking at an LG B9 OLED and plan to purchase an OSCC. My question is which accessory configuration should I go with ? Multi Region PSU, Remote with Overlay? Do you guys recommend the JP21 adapter?

    As for retro systems I just picked up an RGB modded US SNES and model 1 Genesis.. for these systems I plan to go with SCART cables.. the other question I have is what switcher should I use so that I do not have to keep swapping SCART cables on the OSCC?

  15. I've never liked artificial scanlines so will never be fussed with trying to get that CRT look. If I want a CRT look, i'll hunt down a CRT lol.

  16. those people who buy a great TV, plug it in and use like vivid mode, and have stupid sharpness so the image looks like ass

  17. Just wanted to include this for anyone looking, I bought a 49" Samsung q70r around the near year and it's displayed all the consoles I've tried at 5x on the ossc, including NES and SNES. I could only go up to 3x on those consoles on my older Samsung. Genesis, PS1, and N64 are the other 240p consoles I own and also work fine. Input lag is very good, not sure exact numbers but it's low, noticably better than my old Samsung and matches my PC monitor.

  18. Are you guys gonna review the mclassic? I’ve seen mixed reviews on how well it works but I’ve heard it can really improve the picture of retro consoles if you can display them through hdmi.

  19. Catching up on this episode as I am looking into a new TV for my gaming set.

    Between retro-tink, analogue consoles and my love for the minis and 7th gen, I realize that all my outputs have slowly become HDMI (480p minimum from the Dreamcast, potentially 1440p from mClassic – 4K for newer consoles). In my smaller apartment setup, a large TV may not actually make much sense, so I was looking into monitors (27' mainly).
    But the content on the subject is sparse at best, because most people have not looked into computer monitors for retro gaming (likely due to size, cost being half-way to an OLED TV and wanting some TV functionality). For example, I have no idea how good / bad upscaling is but the native lag on monitors is usually extremely low which should help.

    Do you have any resources on the subject?

  20. Hello do you think this card can do the job : Startech USB3HDCAP (OSSCx5) ? =)

    My setup is GameCube PAL RGBS + GBIHF 240p + OSSC.

    I'm just looking for a capture card that takes x5 because my Elgato HD60S works very badly with the OSSC =(
