For CRT Switch Res I have been using a 31Khz PC monitor. This was connected to my PC through an HDMI to VGA adapter. It works beautifully at 1920x240p, native scanlines and all. However it’s only 15" and only VGA so I’ve been looking to upgrade.
Today, I finally did that. I got a 30+" (haven’t measured) Sony Trinitron. This thing has Component, S-Video, Composite, and RF for inputs. So I’m going to have to buy another adapter regardless of how this goes… but I’m trying to learn the best way to get this setup for CRT Switch Res.
HDMI to Component? HDMI to VGA to Component? HDMI to Composite? Or should I be using DisplayPort instead? DVI-Analogue is not an option on my PC. The chain must start with either HDMI or DP.
I do have an HDMI to RF adapter for sweet Channel 3 support… but the adapter forces the resolution to 640x480i, so it won’t work with CRT Switch Res.
I know this is talked about around the forums, but using the search I couldn’t find a good “Ok, that’s how I need to set this up” solution.
