I used the audio/video cable that comes with the N64, is there another way I'm over looking?floorcat wrote:Sinister, what did you use to connect the N64 to the PS 3D display? It only has component and HDMI inputs, and happens to be the TV I've got my N64 & SNES hooked up to (and both work fine, though missing those forlorn CRT scanlines).sinisterSS wrote:I tried my 24" Sony Playstation 3D Display(it does 2D also) again it wouldn't work
marshall on assemblergames is working on this alto it's VGA, not hdmi. http://forums.benheck.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=43034Blinkshot wrote:We should invent some way of upscaling the resolution, etc.
Does the converter up-scale?danikei wrote:I use this cheap solution when I need to connect the n64 to an hdmi
It costs around 40$
The best option would be definitely getting a broadcast crt monitor (sony pvm), then a sony trinitron & then a bang & olufsen mx4000 or mx6000. I'd go for the b&o before the trinitron only because it has a nicer design & doesn't look that dated nowadays.
I'm still looking for a cheap pvm, though, & thinking in getting a b&o. Crts look so much better than upscaling to hd.
If anyone is interested in pics of the converter to hdmi "in use" just ask!
I very much doubt this is something the TV manufacturers would care about. They only need to sell products going forward...YogurtStorm wrote:I think it's more likely that a couple of guys are gonna come together, invent and patent such a product and sell it on an order-by-order basis to the collector market.Grizzmeister wrote:I've always thought that we should petition one of the large television manufacturers to produce an HDTV with a built-in upscaler for legacy consoles like the N64. What do you guys think?
Then again, if the big corps see a potential profit to turn from it, they may give it a go.
Yeah, it does let you change between a few resolutions, although for me the "best" - not really that good- way is to upscale it to something like 1024x768 and let the tv/monitor do the rest. N64's native 320x240/640x480? doesn't do that well.Matt wrote:Does the converter up-scale?
You could always buy a XRGB Mini - Framemeister , it does a good job (much better than my converter) and many people in retrogaming are getting them. Its a bit expensive though (200-300$ with shipping/customs)YogurtStorm wrote:I think it's more likely that a couple of guys are gonna come together, invent and patent such a product and sell it on an order-by-order basis to the collector market.
Yeah, picking up a Framemeister, or some other video processor that scales s-video/RGB well, would be the best way to get it to look good. Does anyone here own a Framemeister that uses the N64 on it? You don't see a lot of people using these things for the N64. Would be nice to hear some thoughts.danikei wrote:You could always buy a XRGB Mini - Framemeister , it does a good job (much better than my converter) and many people in retrogaming are getting them.
