Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

And yeah, the official ps1 rgb cables were grey and only for the jap market as far as i know There's always chance, that it will pop in the eye from somewhere. I suppose that we have to browse every single shop and marketplace, until that founds. One thing would nice, if someone could do, is to fin...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

glad we sorted that out :) Just one more thing: do you get any buzzing sound when turning the sound volume up, or it stays clean no matter how bright the picture gets? If so, can you link where you bought that cable from? I've been searching for a properly shielded scart cable for a while now No I ...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

Well, I don't have CRT, so only choice is to play as far from the tv, as possible. :D Picture will look better from a distance. And maybe, it's just, that the eyes have used to nowadays better image quality and TVs are bigger, that's why PS1 picture looks bad. But it was fun to play, very entertaini...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

I took couple pictures from my gaming session, have to say, that I'm not very pleased about the picture quality, it's almost unplayable. There seems to be missing pixels, like you can see here in the green grass section, those black dots: http://s22.postimg.org/ykiduwvmp/20141021_185557.jpg And what...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

lol don't cross the bridge until you come to it :D Anyway, once the cable has arrived and turns out it's the JAP type, you could try a JAP to EURO converter such as http://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/european-scart-to-japanese-scart-converter.html But until then it's pointless to think about all th...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

But if I check those pinouts and it's JP cable and I need a EU pinout and that cable is with that PCB and therefore, pinout cannot be changed ? :D

So there is no difference between them and there's no different versions of that cable ?

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

I don't think so, the PCB you're talking about probably just includes 3 capacitors+1 resistor rather than having those components separately, and connects the various wires to its respective scart pin( see here for reference ). "best and REAL RGB-cables" would be the ones with each wire properly sh...

All in all, always use RGB.
Is it true, that best and REAL RGB-cables for PS1 are the ones, which have PCB inside the SCART-head ?

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

Could this type of S-Video be Sony's official product ? http://cdn-c.verkkokauppa.com/960/images/10/2_44545-593x394.jpg I have already a original Sony's RGB-cable, but since there's always been chat about those two cables, the S-Video vs. RGB, it would be finally good to solve, that which one of tho...

Okay, good to know. I did find some emulators for PS1 to play NES-games, but it would be a jackpot to get SNES-emulator for PS1. Been a big fan of the SNES since childhood.

Can be used, but the flexibility is an issue. Normally, what I've seen, those are quite heavy and rather hard.

Re: New cord to Playstation controller ?

I'm not sure why you just don't use a PS1/PS2 extension cable as the physical replacement instead of CAT cable :P Because it's cheaper and easier to change the cable than to have a hard time finding those extension cables, pay and/or order them, etc, etc. Besides, I have something to do and the fee...

Re: New cord to Playstation controller ?

I'm sure it would only become slightly more brittle due to the heating of the plastic (ABS) and losses in water molecules still probably present in the ABS. I'm no expert on ABS at this stage, so a good Google search might set you up with the right intel. Or just sacrifice one plug and see what hap...

Re: New cord to Playstation controller ?

Use a hairdryer and use plastic tools to crack it open. Be careful to not heat it too hot or else it will deform the plastic. Ideally you need a strong, thin plastic knife. It is a real pain to open neatly, but it is possible with the right tools. Indeed, heating must be done very carefully. But, w...

The plug itsef is tricky to open, I once have opened it with small screwdriver and it tends to take damage from the screwdriver.

New cord to Playstation controller ?

I was wondering, that is there possibility to put new, longer cable to controller ? What I've noticed, while doing some research, is that CAT 6-type ethernet cable could be suitable to put between controller and the plug, since it has same number of wires and the ground shield. My only worry is that...
