So right now I have Audio Authority's oldest component transcoder, the 9A62: http://www.audioauthority.com/techdocs/9a62752367.pdf
- It was marketed for 480p use only, though some have reported success with HD resolutions
It works really well for 480p sources. On my multisync CRT monitor it maintains color and sharpness really well. When I try to go HD, though, I run into trouble. At 720p, I get a "sync out of range" message, which is strange, because my monitor can go well above 1080p when using a computer. When I get this message, it is reporting a horizontal sync that is jumping between 69 and 220hz. Of course, 220 is way out of range of my monitor, but it also doesn't correspond to the 1280x720 resolution. Any clue why the 9A62 would do this (source is a PS3, when I hook it into my monitor directly, the 720p displays just fine, though completely green)?
I will get a viewable signal with 1080i, but is way too dark, and most blacks are completely crushed.
So my primary question is, will the 9A65 allow me to view these resolutions, or is there some compatibility issue I'm not seeing? It is the updated model released years later: http://www.audioauthority.com/product_details/9A65
- It was marketed as working with 720p and 1080i sources.
Also, anyone that has experience with these sorts of transcoders, I would appreciate any insight you could provide here.
