[SOLVED] SCART to HDMI Box and Spectrum 512

Postby lavalamp » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:11 pm

I have a SCART to HDMI box which is working beautifully with all my retro gear, but...having an issue with Spectrum 512 and NeoChrome Master, both are exhibiting a red hue over areas of the display. Is this an issue with the HDMI box or something else?

I assuming its something to do with frequency/VBL/timing issues as both these programs trick the ST into display more colours than normally allowed. :shrug:

I'll get a good photo of it to post tonight unless some already has come across this before...

this is what I get launching Spectrum 512 on my STE, what gives? Neochrome Master v2.28 is fine. :shrug:

In 50Hz Spectrum512 looks like that duo to palette change timings, you need 60Hz for it to work correctly.
