Hoping to pick your brains about running high(ish) resolutions from an A1200.. Mine is plugged into a widescreen lcd monitor using this little box -
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LiNKFOR-Conver ... 51&sr=8-20
- which has some weird pros and cons.. it’s a lovely stable picture when nothing’s moving, but It does have a degree of smoothing, particularly when things are moving. Another nice thing is it completely strips out flicker on interlaced screen modes.. but when things move you get very odd interlace artefacts following the movement. (I can’t decide if this is a price I’m ok with..)
One big advantage of this box is how I’ve been able to simply split the hdmi out and plug it into my PC’s capture card.. Which could be a requirement moving forward.
I was thinking about getting an OSSC, until I realised it didn’t fix interlace flicker.. buuut, it would theoretically allow me to use HD720 instead in workbench. It’s not like many games or apps use Interlaced screen modes so maybe that’d be best? OSSC is about £150, making it probably the most expensive option..
Then there’s the Indivision flicker fixer.. https://amigakit.amiga.store/product_in ... ts_id=1148
I don’t know if/when they’ll be available again, and I think they were £100? I’m not sure! That seems to give dvi out which is great as it’s easy to split that and send it to my capture card.
Then there’s this strange thing I found on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Amiga-Scando ... SwoSld~q4O
- which has vga out.. which I probably can’t figure out how to capture from.. And I can’t find any reviews of, but it looks pretty interesting. If that would allow hd720 too it miiight be nice? But it’s £80 for a totally unknown (to me) device.
How are other people stopping interlace flicker? Do the proper C= CRT monitors just.. not flicker? If so could it make more sense to get an old monitor and point a camera at the screen than using a hacky add on?
Thanks, Jeez I’m rambling.. It helped to get everything written down though.
