The EDGE handles 240p VERY poorly, it looks like **** to be honest
I have tried my share of scalers and deinterlacers and that is without a doubt the worst 240p image I have ever seen. Sure it's only 6ms lag and the EDGE doesn't deinterlace or interpolate the image, but the ringing is SO bad
There is no comparison, if you want the best results for your 240p games get a XRGB-3. You should check out this page for video processors and gaming use:http://retrogaming.hazard-city.de/
Here is the EDGE discussion thread on the Shmups forums (gaming usage):http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic...35776&start=30
EDIT: For anything else the EDGE is pretty great though
Deinterlacing 480i looks amazing if you switch off Game Mode (56ms lag though). 480i/p resolutions does have a bit too much ringing in my opinion but really this is negligible, and can only be seen when you are very close to the screen. 720p and 1080p scaling and passthough looks perfect to me
Don't worry about connecting the EDGE directly to your TV set. It will work fine this way. I have my XRGB-3 hooked up the the RGBHV input of the EDGE and it's a very good combo for all possible video game usages (XRGB for 240p, EDGE for everything else). Only problem is the smudged blue and red colors because the EDGE sees the XRGB-3's colorspace as component for some reason, but hopefully they can fix this in a future firmware release
Hope that helps.
