    Nah - there was an issue with the shipping I chose (picked a super expensive version) which took a while to get sorted.  Lotharek was kind enough to fix it.  Anyhow - didn't mean to sound like a crybaby in the post - it was meant in jest.  I feel like the dork on the playground watching from the sidelines while all the cool kids are playing with their shiny toys :)

    Hey at least you have one coming :D I have my money tied up in other projects and will have to wait.

    The text is mostly the same, but the layout is completely new and these will be printed professionally in the same vein as our other recent Jaguar manuals with a nice, thicker, glossy cover. 
     

    I'll post some photos once I have the manuals. Just the Brawn and Brains manuals needs to be completed before they are all sent to off to be printed.

    Thanks for the info!

    There is no visible lag at all with RetroTINK. Its a beast and worth paying, especially if you plan more than 1 computer/console. Regarding lag pls see RetroRGB videos testing it.

    Thanks for the info!!! I think I'll grab one of the Pro versions at the end of the year (as long as I get a bonus LOL) - I didn't think about being able to use it for multiple machines.

    Pros:

    1. Very high quality conversion from analog video to HDMI
    2. Conversion does not compromise original source contrast, brightness, aspect ratio, or any other video spec
    3. Considerably cheaper than other solutions of equal quality

    Cons:

    1. It'll make your wallet lighter by at least $100 (depending on model purchased)
    2. It won't fix poor quality video input

     

    Thanks Michael. Is there any lag?

    RetroTink 2x 👍

    -or-

    RetroTink 2X-Pro 👍 👍

     

    I have the standard 2X model and its the best conversion for your $ that I've ever seen.

     

    But... it'll only be as good as the quality you put into it. So I highly recommend installing a UAV and using a double-shielded S-Video cable directly out of the UAV outputs.

     

    I keep seeing mention of these devices but can't quite convince myself to plop down $100 for one. I get adequate output from most of my machines and primarily use CRTs. What are the pros and cons of the RetroTink?

    I always had terrible luck with my 8-bitters on my LCD devices.  I also built my own cables, cutting existing cables in half and installing DIN5 jacks on them.  I am glad I never offered any for sale, as given the above images, I am sure the cables I was using were incorrectly made.  Still - it gave me an excuse to collect 2 Sony PVMs (14", 20"), 2 Sony Trinitron 8" monitors, and a 1977 Sony Trinitron "portable" 8" TV :)

     

    At some point I definitely want to try a proper cable and see how things look on my LCDs.

    Any cables I've made myself turned out complete garbage, soldering those tiny pins is a PITA
