@Cell Thanks! Photography is my side hobby.

@Turok81 Also thanks. And to answer your question about it running hotter. I did notice the area around the Ultra HDMI was hotter, it wasn't as hot as the power supply though. Last time I played was for about an hour. I didn't have my controller extension in so my N64 was off my entertainment center and on the carpet. I don't see it being a problem but only time will tell. There is also a vent directly to the right of the Ultra HDMI adapter.

I'm also looking forward to a gamecube version. Actually any Retro HDMI version. I may pull the trigger on the Hi-Def NES once all the bugs are fixed.

After viewing some footage of the De-blur mode I have to say I think it makes the games look worse. The blur gives the games a smudged look but it molds the models into something more rounded and organic. The de-blur just makes them look like NES sprites.

Yeah, I am excited for this mod because I have an HDTV in a good location and a CRT in a bad location...


EDIT: I also want a GameCube version, my computer isn't beefy enough to handle Dolphin at a great framerate.

I feel the same way. Most games look to pixellated with it. It might look ok with some games, but I feel there is a good reason the blur filter was enabled in the first place. Still very nice to have options though. I'm still planning to get one, or at least I was. Looks like it's gone off the market now. Been sold out for months and the supplier has gone quiet.

That's a shame because I'm sure at a substantially lower price there's probably a sizable market for the product.

It's still available. The original 'official' modder ground to a halt and has long wait times - but now there are decent modders offering it with a slight wait - a month or so. Here's one.

If an N64 Mini does eventually get released, it'll be interesting to see how it compares to an original N64 that has the Ultra HDMI mod. Considering that the Mini will probably be substantially less expensive it'll have the clear advantage but availability is also a concern when you're dealing with Nintendo and their Classics lineup.

Nonetheless, I suspect many people are starting to realize that HDMI output on legacy consoles isn't the panacea they thought it'd be. It's nice if the price is right but at a certain point either a CRT or emulation make more sense.

Did scanlines for integer and integer+ ever get added?

Yes. For 1080p on a native 1080p display with no simulated overscan, I typically use Integer+ (essentially 5x scale, 1200p cropped to 1080p) with scanlines. If you have a proper integer scale on a 1080p TV then each row of game pixels should be 5 of your display’s native lines tall. If you don’t, then some scanlines might appear darker or thicker than others (often alternating bands of thick and thin).

I would not recommend scanlines if you can’t disable your TV’s scaling for a proper integer scale. The ability to turn off overscan simulation is hidden, obfuscated, or missing on many TVs. If your TV menu shows the option at all it will typically have a marketing name, like “Full Pixel,” or “JustScan,” but sometimes it’s listed as “1:1 pixel” or something more relevant. One of the ways I’ve seen it obfuscated is when they force you to us a particular input and set a custom label like “PC” in order to get it to stop zooming/cropping your image. Yes, most 1080p TVs will zoom and crop a 1080p signal even though it matches the native resolution.

I’ve installed hundreds of UltraHDMI kits and walked many people through configuring their TVs.
