In this video I will show you a well kept secret about how to get a lot of older game consoles to have the best picture quality. It's the miracle that is SCART and its full RGB signal, and how you can convert it to HDMI in an upscaled 720p or even full 1080p image and make it look astonishingly beautiful. Seriously, it blows my mind how good this looks.
As an added bonus feature, it allows you to convert a PAL video signal to an NTSC one or vice versa.
If you use a device like the Hauppauge HD PVR 2, it will also allow you to easily capture game footage with crystal clear quality.
There are three scart types that should be addressed in the description so that some players aren't disappointed.
1. A scart adaptor - this is not scart - It is simply AV cables in an RCA to scart connection adaptor.
2. A regular scart lead. This is the same as above but with an actual (7 pin) scart connection. Quality wise, it's still just an AV cable.
3. RGB Scart - this is the true high quality scart. Usually 21 pin.
This will work best with the following consoles:
Atari Jaguar CD
Nintendo Super Nintendo (Super Famicom) [original model only]
Sega Master System
Sega Genesis (Mega Drive)
Sega CD (Mega CD)
Sony Playstation (1)
SNK Neo Geo AES
SNK Neo Geo CD
This will not work with anything older such as the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Nintendo Entertainment System, Colecovision, Famicom etcetera.
Some notable exceptions that do not work because of the limits of the console itself:
Super Nintendo Jr
3DO (any model, Panasonic, Goldstar etcetera)
NEC Turbografx 16
This method is also not worth applying to consoles from the Dreamcast onward as they have more advanced methods of video display. Using this on these consoles will result in a loss of image quality. These consoles include:
Nintendo Wii (not including the Wii Mini)
Nintendo Wii U
Microsoft XBox 360
Microsoft XBox One
Sony Playstation 2
Sony Playstation 3
Sony Playstation 4
