Convert 480p to 480i  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Is there a cheap/easy way to convert component output 480p to 480i? This is mostly a convenience thing, so that I wouldn't have to run some components via S-Video and others via component, and constantly juggle inputs on my old-school NTSC set.

No.

The easiest thing to do is use S-video for everything, given that convenience of switching is your main concern. All 480p DVD players I know of will also output 480i component video with the flip of a switch.

(What else do you have that outputs 480p but not 480i component or S-video?)

What about the other way, s-video to 480p component would be an improvement. Anything available under $300 for a single line source?

Yes, check out avtoolbox.com. They have a $100ish line doubler, and a decent scaler (AVT-3700) that does about every imaginable resolution between 480p and 1080i for a couple hundred more.

None of the avtoolbox items have component 480p output. It is all VGA or XGVA output.

Any other ideas for s-video to component 480p output?

You can get a transcoder of some kind and use the VGA out.

I'd look for a used iScan. It'll do a fine job and will meet your price.
