Hey All! In a few weeks I'll be releasing my JAG2GEN Jaguar AV adapter. This adapter allows you to connect Sega Genesis (Model 2) AV cables to your Atari Jaguar. This provides a more common and readily available solution for connecting your Atari Jaguar to an SDTV or HDTV. The JAG2GEN works great with HD Retrovision cables (Genesis Model 2) and works even better with HD Retrovision cables connected to a scan converter like OSSC. I've created a sign up list for anyone interest: https://www.humblebazooka.com/product/jag2gen-jaguar-av-to-genesis-cables/ (pre-production shell subject to change upon release) Features: Supports Genesis Model 2 AV cabes Supports HD Retrovision cables Allows you to use an OSSC or RetroTink to upscale for better video quality Properly attenuated sync Custom designed and professionally assembled PCB Custom designed 3D printed shell FAQ: Q) What is the JAG2GEN? A) The JAG2GEN is an adapter that simply converts your Jaguar’s AV signal to that of a Genesis model 2 AV cable. Q) Will it make my picture quality look better A) Not by itself but the JAG2GEN captures your Jaguar’s RGB signals allowing a scan converter to make your Jaguar games look amazing. Q) Why not straight to HDMI? A) Converting and upscaling 240p signal from RGB requires a lot of development time in hardware and software, requiring hardware that would inflate the cost of this adapter to the end user. I wanted to develop something simple that anyone can afford and use. Q) Is this the same thing as Helder's "JAG2SNES" adapter? A) It's very similar and uses a similar circuit and components. The JAG2SNES was actually my idea I pitched to Helder who then made the PCBs. I designed the shell, did all the R&D testing, and we eventually got the adapter to market. I've learned from that experience and decided to make my own adapter and offer an option for people with Genesis model 2 AV cables. Q) Is this the same thing as Jody Hicks' (Judas-Prime) Jag AV adapters? A) Nope - same concept, different execution! This is a ground up solution I've developed. If you already own Jody's adapter, there's probably no reason to buy this if his performs how you want it to. I'm sure I don't need to tell you guys how awesome of a dude Jody is. But he openly endorsed Helder's and my JAG2SNES adapter via Twitter, which he didn't have to do.
