My console is modded and should here in a couple of days. :-) Unfortunately, the guy seems to know nothing about changing the palettes, so I'll just have the three standard palettes from Tim.

My god, this has turned out to be way more trouble than it was worth. I had to send it back because it wasn't working with...anything I tried. SO CONFUSED. Fingers crossed it was actually broken and he lied about not fixing anything. He says he's gonna test it with a Framemeister...haven't heard back yet.

Received it back in the mail this morning...

Well....not perfect, but kind of better results than before. I didn't clean or change anything.
I can get sound from both the 3.5mm and the RGB Multi-out through the Framemeister. I can get sound and video through the Composite Multi-out, but still no video from the RGB Multi-out. This is definitely a sync issue.

I don't have much time to play around with it right now, since I have work soon. But, if I can't get this to work on any sync setting, I may have to try soldering the sync to CSync (CS#) (it's currently soldered to Composite (V)). The NESRGB seems to be working now, so I can't think of anything else.

Composite video for sync is actually correct for SCART.
Which isn't to say you won't get better results with a cleaner sync signal, just that it isn't necessarily wrong.



Just in case you thought something could EVER be straightforward, and needed someone to dash your hopes across the rocky shoals of harsh reality.

I forgot to mention; there's also the PPU VSync (PPUV Pad).

I went to sign up for the Schmups forum (https://shmups.system11.org/) and accidentally clicked the link that said I was born after 2005 and now I need permission from my guardian. I reply to the e-mail, but I dunno if that's the correct one. *sigh* Too busy lately and my brain can't catch up...

That one probably WON'T work. The TV needs HSync and VSync both. HSync signals the end of a line, VSync signals the end of a frame(more or less).
Composite sync is both sync signals on one line. Unlike composite video, they're very easy to separate out and don't interfere with each other, so there's not really a quality loss there.

Here's the pinout: https://etim.net.au/nesrgb/NESRGB-Pinout.pdf

I remember asking the guy about jumper J8 and he just told me he soldered J7 for NTSC and giggled like an idiot. It appears he's configured J4 and J5 correctly for that, though.

Do I need to switch V to CS# and solder J8? Is that composite video output being used for a sync? If I change to composite sync, will I lose composite output? I'm confused as to how to solder that, though. J4 looks like three neat triangles, where-as J5 is just a blob.

I'm completely convinced that he didn't test it with a Framemeister, now.
