Is anyone using the OSSC with an Atari ST or STe?  What is the experience?  Plug & Play?  HD15 or SCART cable?

Hey there.  I own a OSSC and I have to say it is the best option to use for a HDMI solution.  I have a SCART cable that works great with low and med res.  You can get right up to the screen and see little to no noise or distortion.  Its a strait plug and play and the LCD screen tells you the signal its receiving.  I have heard that the Framemister works great with it too, but this is the next step down as far as price goes, and it is so worth it.  Best solution in my book, highly recommended.

The still substantial cost of the OSSC, combined with the uncertainty around its fitness for the targets I want, made me spring for the Framemeister.  I can't say I am absolutely in love with it.  It proved useless for working with VESA video from my old DOS/Windows 3.1 gaming PC's.  However, it does the job better than anything else I have seen so far when it comes to RGB over SCART; which is how I push all of my old consoles.  Maybe I will complete the massive collection of scalers and converters I have acquired over the years and get an OSSC at some point in the future.

I have one, and the Best multisync cable. I'm not terribly impressed with passing through that cable to the OSSC - ST High doesn't look right, and ST Medium seems to be missing lines.

 

I ordered an SCART cable and I want to try that through the OSSC. I'll post an update when that gets here.

I have tried both, HD15 and Scart with my OSSC. Go for Scart, as the OSSC has some noise reduction filters over scart which aren't present in the VGA in on AV3. The Picture over Scart has much less noise then the VGA in.
