MiSTer on SCART?

Postby Halk » Wed Oct 02, 2019 4:20 pm

I've tried to do a bit of research and it seems that it might be as easy as getting a MiSTer, and the I/O board and a VGA2SCART cable and I should be able to get a great image output on a Sony Trinitron CRT. Some configuration will be required for each core but have I overlooked anything or might be just as simple as that? I'm only intending using MiSTer for it's arcade cores.

Yep thats basically it! I got my vga to scart cable from amigastore.eu and it works perfectly. I had to set composite_sync=1 in mister.ini but I think that was it - shouldnt have to mess with individual core video settings

Are there resistors etc in that cable, or will any cable do?

That seems cheap :)

Follow the instructions found on the site below (no resistors required, but you need a 3,5 stereo jack & cable if you want audio as well):

According to the MiST wiki, those cables won't work out of the box, but can be modded, at least for video.
