HD Retrovision Component cables for retro consoles???

Postby JWK » February 4th, 2019, 5:43 pm


I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with these cables. I just found out about them this past weekend, but I guess they’ve been around for a couple years. They have component cables for SNES and Model 2 Genesis and then some adapters for Saturn, PS1 and Model 1 Genesis. I’ve always wanted good quality visuals from my retro consoles but wasn’t willing to do RGB mods or buy a framemeister. I absolutely love FPGA solutions for NES, SNES (and soon to be Megadrive/Genesis and Master System), but those only offer HDMI out (barring the $1000+ aftermarket prices Analogue NT Mini) and can only be used on modern TVs. I have Homebrew on one of my Wii’s (hooked up via Component), but some of the emulation has lag and sound issues. These component cables seem like a great solution for original hardware on a CRT with the best possible signal (again, short of RGB mods and a professional video monitor). But I wanted to get the forum’s view on them before I put $70 (per cable) toward one of these things. Let me know and thanks as always!

I'm curious about this too. I'm trying to figure out sms/genesis solution for my HD tv. I trying to decide between these cables, mega retron HD or retron 5.
