Retro Gaming Cables: RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES) NTSC / PAL-M with CSYNC

Those who follow the blog know that in Skooter 2013 got a RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES), Super Famicom, Gamecube and Nintendo 64 (RGB Cable) to take advantage of my Super Nintendo with great image, much better than I was used to from my childhood, but with the same console.

I was pleased with the RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES), Super Famicom, Gamecube and Nintendo 64 (RGB Cable) for a long time, until one day put the 240p test suite to my SD2SNES and realized that the audio left and right channels were reversed. Might even have abrido the connector to repair the error it made the cable, but I ended up leaving after.

Some time later, came my Framemeister XRGB Mini and realized that with the RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES), Super Famicom, Gamecube and Nintendo 64 (RGB Cable) it was necessary to adjust the synchronization level to higher values ​​for image.

So I decided that my Super Nintendo was deserving SCART RGB best. In Retro Gaming Cables made the acquisition of RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES) NTSC / PAL-M and chose the options “Euroconnec-” and “Sync (CSYNC)”. The option “Euroconnec-” It is due to already have switch SCART RGB this pattern, which is more common than the JP21.

But what is the difference between “Composite Video + Sync” and “Sync (CSYNC)”? I'll explain. It is this: when both televisions upscalers, like Framemeister XRGB Mini and the SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI, need a synchronization signal sent along with the video. Moreover, virtually all need a video synchronization signal. In the case of composite video, it is sent along with the video signal itself. No caso do S-Video, it is sent along with the luminance signal, while the chrominance will pure. In the case of the component video YPbPr, he is also sent along with the luminance channel (or Y), while the other two pure components will. In the case of RGB, all components are pure, no synchronization signal. So where the synchronization is? Simple! In the case of RGB SCART cables, the synchronization signal is already with the composite video signal, using a separate conductor of the three RGB, so in practice both signals (compound and RGB) are together in the same cable. What the TV or upscaler do is use the pure image pins that bring the signal R (red), G (green), and B (blue), and synchronization that comes along with composite video.

Some upscalers like SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI work well with this synchronization signal that carries the video mixed compound. Other, like Framemeister XRGB Mini, depending on the console, need that fits the synchronization gain control to use this signal, which is apparently weaker. Another problem with using synchronization that comes along with composite video is that the signals can not be 100% separated, then the composite video ends up causing some distortion in the synchronization signal that can be reflected in unwanted patterns emerging in pictures.

The ideal would then use a pure synchronization signal, after all composite video serves no purpose when we are using RGB, some? For that is exactly what the cable with the CSYNC option causes. Happily, Super Nintendo NTSC, and also the Playtronic transcoded into PAL-M, have pure synchronization signal available in audio and video output plug. Just then make the connection that pure signal in RGB SCART cable in place where you normally would the composite video signal. Thus the Framemeister XRGB Mini can work with the standard level of synchronization and unwanted artifacts disappear. The side effect is to lose the composite video signal, but do not need it when we are using RGB. Note that some TVs with SCART input may not like this pure synchronization signal, they are waiting for the synchronization signal along with composite video. So that's why there are two options.

Note that the CSYNC is also called “Composite Sync”, “Pure Sync”, “Raw Sync”, etc. it's all essentially the same thing. Each cable manufacturer ended up creating a different name. Notice that “Composite Sync” It may seem a little strange, because “Composite” remember composite video, and has composite video so it's not pure synchronization signal. But this has an explanation: the synchronizing signal is sometimes called “Composite Sync” because it is actually two signals: the horizontal sync and vertical sync being transmitted together. Other types of cable, as the VGA 15 pins (D-SUB), used in computers (and now being used less and less in favor of digital standards), wherein the vertical and horizontal synchronization signal following on separate conductors.

Having said all this, I can say that RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES) NTSC / PAL-M with CYSNC is approved. My Framemeister XRGB Mini now works with all consoles without adjustments in the level of synchronization, simply change the . The sound now also come out the right way: left channel on the left and right channel on the right side.

In the same package with RGB SCART Cable for Super Nintendo (SNES) NTSC / PAL-M I ordered a SCART interconnect cable, which is not in store, but was in an advertisement in eBay the seller retro_gaming_cables, which is the same store Retro Gaming Cables. By e-mail did with him the arrangement of purchase of the two with the same shipping. But I ended up not using the cable interconnection because soon after bought QED SQART Dual Screen Silver Reference AV 0.5 Meter Video Scart Data Cable, it seems to me better.

    Good morning!
    How can this type of tracking, as shown in all its acquisitions?
    I bought some products, but what I can in the post office site, is very simple, type… delivery delays, then I called and learned that is being analyzed in the custom house and do not have a certain date for when leave for delivery.

      Good morning,

      Use o link a seguir, adding at the end the tracking code:
      http://websro.correios.com.br/sro_bin/txect01$.QueryList?P_LINGUA=001&P_TIPO=001&P_COD_UNI=

      Note, however, that the new system has the same steps, just with different words. The “delivery delays” will leave the old system as “not located in the postal stream”.
