My Framemeister is taking a nap. I can't believe it.
I ordered an OSSC 1.6 recently, mostly out of curiosity. The only mode that my 1080P Sony liked was Line 2x (480P), and while it looked good, I still liked the 5X profiles I was using with the Framemeister, so it stayed plugged up. This got me curious about the OSSC's other modes and maybe it was time to upgrade to 4K anyway.
If you know anything about the OSSC, it does lag free* (talking micro seconds here) line doubling, tripling, quadrupling, and now even quintupling (5X!). Problem is, those higher outputs aren't exactly a HDMI standard signal, and if a TV likes it or not is a crap shoot.
I spent quite a bit of time looking at all the major brands' new sets, input lag, blah blah blah.. I found this TV (thanks to an entry by BahnYuki on the OSSC compatability page and subsequent youtube video on the subject )
Enter the TCL 55p605. A $600, 55" 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision, still has Coax and a composite input, with 14MS of input lag in game mode. AND it works with ALL of the OSSC's output modes. All of em.
Playing saturn with this combo, the 240P<->480i switch (dead or alive is a good example). Takes a second, there's no HDMI re-handshake needed.
Now the TCL isn't perfect, there is some backlight bleed in one corner on my panel, but again, it's 600 bux. The more expensive QuantumDotSuperPixel OLEDs are obviously going to look better for 4K TV watching. But if you're simply looking for maybe a 2nd tv for a gaming setup, and to possibly retire a CRT. This might be what you've been looking for
