Scart RGB Cable for PC-Engine with built-in amp query?
« on: October 10, 2016, 11:10 PM »
Hi,

I'm looking to buy one of these, instead of modding the console for RGB and wondered if anyone else owns one and whether there are any issues or not with the TED? or if they are worth using too?


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scart-RGB-Cable-for-PC-Engine-TurboGrafx16-EXT-Connector-/172320665523?nma=true&si=IuPW6FZ1CBivEg8wq7kPeYqvPcA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Thanks in advance.

It works fine, but I prefer this one:  http://db-electronics.ca/product/dbgrafx-booster-ttp/

It's a bit more expensive and requires a Genesis 2 RGB SCART cable (with the proper caps in the SCART head), but has more options.

I prefer the first one.  fidde_se has been making those rgb cables for a while now.  He's well known for his amazing cable. 

The grafx booster is hard to find and while it has more options, you can get any of those cables on eBay for cheap.

i may recommend this one, quite cheap and good picture. Compatible with Sega Mega2 cable or straight cables in case using a Sony PVM or alike.

Forgot to mention, is there any Jail Bars present on-screen with either of these methods?

Jail bars get fixed by an internal mod, which system do you have?
I personally dislike the ext bus amps as it limits the console from using CDs, internal mod is neater IMHO

I'm using a JP PC Engine Core Grafx console.

Some time has pass and now we have new options:

https://www.ebay.pl/itm/PC-Engine-AV-Booster-RGBS-output-TurboGrafx-16-Composite-RCA-RGB-SCART/153398773779?hash=item23b7478813:g:Za8AAOSwhu9cFTgo
This one has cut slot but it's cheap.

Almost the same design but capasitors are standard not the SMD I think.

Question is which one has better picture. Anyone have info about those?

Both are terrible.  I purchased one awhile back and it was built wrong.  Also, everything has changed since the original post:
