    Alright. I'd also seriously consider S-video + Framemeister/OSSC/RetroTINK if you have one of those, as S-video is still good and has 100% compatibility with the entire Dreamcast library, unlike VGA. S-video will give you interlaced video for a lot of games, unfortunately. OSSC's bob deinterlacing is not great and can cause image retention on some screens like my monitor, but the others, or anything else with good deinterlacing, should be fine.


    Also, if you don't care about fake scanlines, consider the Gekko instead of the Akura, as the Gekko is the same thing but cheaper and the only difference that I can remember is that the Akura has optional fake scanlines. The fake scanlines look okay, but I've seen better. I just checked and the Akura also has analog audio output. Other than that, no real differences.

    I'd second the Gekko, my TV has VGA in an looks good with a cheap VGA cable but when I gave an extra DC to a friend I got him a Gekko. We gave it a run on my 1080p BenQ 2150ST and it looked great even blown up to 150".  It isn't perfect and I think the DC Digital internal mod would be the best you could do but it is MUCH more expensive.


    Watch this for more detail:

  2. Often read the forums but have never posted but I thought someone might want some of this. 


    I found 6 SNES consoles in extreme disrepair in a box left out in the trash at a neighbour's house a couple years ago.   I managed to hack together 3 working consoles from the parts.  There is a ton of parts left over...  only 2 motherboards.  Both are missing the port the controller breakout board attaches to.  One I tried to wire directly and failed the other was so damaged it just fell right off.


    The plastics are yellowed but there are working cart port flaps, nice buttons,  etc.


    I feel 3 Frankenconsoles is enough for me...  anyone want some random parts?


    I'm willing to look through what I have to find a part you might need.   Also I'll post up to 30 Canadian for shipping to anywhere if you want to take the lot of this. If I can fit a part in an envelope I'd ship it to you for free. 


    Keep in mind that you will not be able to just put it together and it works this is just leftovers...  plastic cases, shields,  etc will not match and will definitely be missing parts. 


    I also have some DS lite parts and a GDROM for a Dreamcast that kind of reads discs the last time I connected it.
