  1. It's not. I didn't imply, or intend to imply, it was competition. If it sounded like that, I apologize. I'm just excited to see the INTV finally working on all these devices.
  2. To update all, @the_crayon_king sent me a v5 board with his latest code changes for me to test on the RT 5x. I was able to install it today and my testing produced great results. To start off, my 5x still had fw 1.29. I tested games via LTO and typical carts. There was no shaking video on the 5x at any time. I was even cycling through all the different output resolutions and never saw any video hiccups. After that, I decided to update the 5x fw to the latest 1.55 and everything continued to perform as expected. From what I have seen, this is the best RGB mod going for the INTV right now. With the latest code, it works with XRGB, OSSC, RT 2x-Scart, Rad2x, and now the RT 5x Pro. Thank you for all your hard work Crayola. your persistence paid off.
  3. I have not yet. Will probably get to it one evening this week. I will update, but not keeping my hopes up.
  4. I have a composite mod board on order and will add that in to wire it up to the composite sync of the genesis 2 port. I am really just interested to see what happens. If it doesn't work, I am still very happy with the OSSC output and the flexibility to be able to use the Rad2x.
  5. On the 5x front, I already got a reply from Mike Chi. He was awesome at replying very quickly. He is unable to provide the original fw version to downgrade to, but did tell me that the 5x is looking for composite sync. It looks like I would need to also install a composite mod board and wire that to the composite pin out on the Genesis 2 connector.
  6. @the_crayon_king Sorry, the mostly works was just a reminder for me to test the LTO more. At first I didn't see drop outs on your previous revisions, but once I tested more, I started to see them. Right now, your latest revision seems to eliminate the drop outs on the 2xScart, but I want to test more. I cut testing the 2xSCART short so I can test the 5x more.
  7. There is a pic on this RetroRGB Intellivision page that shows where to pull the audio from the RF module pin. Just run it to both left and right.
  8. After further testing, What I came up was this. The latest board works well through the OSSC connected to my TV. I also went back and tested the 2xSCART and did not trigger any video drop out with the LTO. I would still like to further test this. The latest board still works well with the Genesis 2 RAD2x cable as well. Where I did notice issues is with the RT5x. I tested the new CrayolaRGB, the v1 (in my SSVA), and the FredK RGB in my INTV2) all seem to display shaky video, but some at different settings on the RT5x. I did update my RT5x to the latest 1.2 fw, so I need to see if I can downgrade to see if the latest FW introduced any of this. Here is a short video of what I am referring to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATwWF0edZGE Here is a little table from my testing the various RGB boards and scalers. I still need to further test the 5x since I am unsure if the fw update caused any of this
  9. @the_crayon_king, I just finished installing your latest revision and so far, everything looks great. I only had a chance to test OSSC with a couple carts and LTO. They all seemed to display great through the OSSC on 5x. I will do further testing on other devices later, but wanted to at least post the initial good results.
  10. Awesome news and looks great. I can swap out one of my boards when you are ready to sell. I can run it through OSSC, Rad2x, RT 5x pro, and RT 2x scart. Just lmk when you put them up on the eBays. And thanks again for giving the intelli some much needed love!
  11. Ok....so, I was able to do a little more testing. SSVA w/Crayola mod -->2x Scart: LTO - I was able to experience a few drop outs after playing with browsing/paging up and down on the menu after a while. Definitely WAY less than what I had with the Fred K mod since I really had to play with the browsing quite a bit to get it to trigger (w/Crayola). However, I played Thunder Castle with this setup for about 20-30 minutes with no dropouts or issues. SSVA w/Crayola mod -->Rad2x Genesis 2 cable: LTO - No issues at all. I tried browsing the menu for a while and never experienced and drop outs. Also, playing Thunder Castle and other games did not trigger any drop outs.
  12. I just wanted to clarify my experiences with this. I was having drop outs on paging up/down browsing the LTO menu of roms, but this was only happening when I had the Fred K board installed. It was consistent on multiple TVs and had that board in an INTV II and INTV 3. Same behavior. I also have (2) 2x Scart boxes. Still consistent behavior. I used the Crayola board (early revision) on a SSVA and have not seen drop outs. I would have to test @-^CrossBow^- 's use cases specifically, but I definitely have not seen them in the places I saw them when I use the Fred K board. I liked the result in my SSVA, so I bought another Crayola board to swap out with the Fred K. board in my INTV 3. This one was the current revision and behaves the same as my SSVA. I sill have my INTV II on the Fred mod, so I will try to do another comparison in the next day or so. I hope this info helps
  13. The new board showed up yesterday, and I was able to install it today. I replaced a Fred K board in my INTV III and the results are the same as the first board I installed in my SSVA that had your code prior to Jan. 11 2021. The mod works with the RetroTink 2x SCART (as you mentioned), Rad2x (Genesis 2) cable, and the cheap Amazon scaler. These were all tested with the LTO and did NOT have any problems browsing the menu. LTO also performed as it should loading and playing games. I did not get any sync or signal through my OSSC. One other thing to note is that when I tested the 2x SCART, I tested both directly to the 2xSCART and through a GScartSW. Both worked great. No new pics as the output is the same as my previous posted pics of RT 2X SCART and Rad2x. I would love to get RGB through OSSC for the INTV, but I think having a working solution with RetroTink products is a very good option to have. Thank you for providing a board that enables this as an option.
  14. I wired everything (other than audio) from the color IC. I will try to open the console up again and get some detailed pics of the install I did. Might not get to it for a few days though. One thing I do remember I had an issue with was that my GND wire that runs from the RGB board out to the mini-din popped off the port shielding when I was re-assembling the mini-din and pushing it back through. I did not get a picture at first. When I soldered that GND back on the mini-din outer shield, it was fine and produce the pics in my post above.
  15. I posted my results from the board that had the old version of Crayola's code (prior to Jan 11 2021) HERE The only other thing I would add to the post in the link is that I do not have the video drop out for a lengthy amount of time while browsing the games on LTO. Small flashes here and there, but not like I do on my console(s) that have the Fed K board. A current revision board is on it's way now. I will install that and see how that compares. I am not expecting OSSC to work, but I would like to see how the new board revision performs with the 2x Scart and Rad2x Genesis 2 cable.
