I was waiting for the Polymega emu console as a simple hdmi solution if it's ever actually released.
Also looking at the more complex OSSC which has a 4x/5x mode that should look better (than Rad2x) on a 4k screen. Then I could use all my existing RGB/SCART cables from my old XRGB-1.
If you have a few consoles, maybe just get SCART cables each system and get a OSSC... ($150-170), it's a lot cheaper than the Framemister. It might offers more scaling than your old XRGB-1.
The Rad2X looks cool for what it is but, if your going to do a few different consoles with a few of them it might be better for another solution. The Rad2X was really designed for someone with a single console that they wanted get RGB/HDMI quality out of.
Ah, I remember reading about the Polymega emu console. Looks like a cool device but, I would need to see some reviews before I would buy one (wondering about the LAG on this device, as the Retro 5 is a lag fest).. And that they claimed it was going to be released in May, I hope it does not turn like the NEW Atari system...lol
Tell me about the decisions here... I was/am planning to setup a cab with 20+ consoles... and a good chunk of them will be SCART/RGB.
We could get A LOT deeper into this discussion but, This is not the place for it.
The Rad2x will upscale to 480i/p and the SM9000 should not have an issue with it, 240p is a different story but, I have not been able to find the spec sheet to show what it actually supports.
With 4K TVs, getting 240i/p native support, I would not get your hopes up. I know when I hooked up my NES over composite to it (before I did the NESRGB kit), clearly there was no 240p support and I could tell it was treating it as 480 (looked like complete crap)
