Hi everyone! I am attempting to play an Atari 2600 on a modern-day television. Specifically, on the LG - 77" Class CX Series OLED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV. Its specs are a little different than your average digital TV, I believe. At least different enough to not be compatible with the recommendations I see for using an upscaler. Because it's not a 60hz TV; it's 120hz. And apparently that causes...interface problems with upscalers most ppl are using. So that's fun, right? LOL.... There is also some question as to HDMI being used, tho I am not entirely clear on the reasons associated with that. This model encompasses both HDMI 2.0 as well as HDMI 2.1 (thank goodness)....which other LG OLED models do not. Apparently HDMI 2.0 is getting "phased out"....but this model, thankfully, still allows its use! Something else of note....is the "Resolution" with this model. It's listed at 2160p (not 1080p)......is that unusual? I expected it to be 1080p. And since that is double what other models I've seen list, how does that impact use of an upscaler, or even use of an Open Source Scan Converter (OSSC) in this process of getting the Atari 2600 to play (well) on this model of TV? Here are the full specs of the TV in question, the one that will be used to play the Atari 2600 on.

Really need to play the Atari 2600 on this TV!! Man I hope there is a solution to be found. I'm open to any and all suggestions!!! Please let me know what should be used; the things to get and use, etc....even if they are not OSSC or an upscaler. I just want to know how to play Atari again, on a modern TV; how that gets done though eludes me. Pls forgive the n00bishness. <3 Thanks in advance for any and all help!

I bought a RGB modded Atari 2600 several years ago. Thinking it would be super easy to connect to my UHD TV. The basic RGB to HDMI converter I bought from DKOldies works, but the picture isn’t sharp. I haven’t found any information on a specific converter-upscaler that is directly targeted toward someone with an RGB modded Atari 2600. I have a great library of Atari 2600 cartridges (including many Homebrew carts bought directly from the Atariage store) that I would love to play. Is there any way that I can connect my RGB modded Atari 2600 to my UHD TV and have a high quality sharp picture? Without spending a lot of money. Whether it’s the quality of the cables or also if there’s a upscaler I can buy instead of just a converter? I would appreciate it if someone could help with any recommendations.
