This isn’t simple, and that’s fine, but I’m so far past the point of trying to figure this out. I just need help getting this to work.
What I have: Consumer 240p + 480i/480p CRT with Component input. Windows 10 PC w/ Display port, DVI-A, and VGA.
The PC side of things is extremely flexible. I can change out my video card, I have several. I can use my other PC - I don’t so much care.
The TV is not flexible at all. No RGB modding. No SCART.
I got this HDMI to Component converter for Christmas. (Not a scaler - this converter was recommended on several old reddit threads for this exact purpose)
It’s rated to accept 480i/p all the way up to 1080i/p and output the identical resolution. I confirmed this with the included documentation as well.
On the software side I’m creating resolutions using CRU - Custom Resolution Utility. On the PC in question I am open to using CRTEmuDriver.
Summary: RetroArch + Win10 > DVI-A adapted to HDMI > Converter > Component > TV.
I can get 1920x240 @ 60Hz to work. I cannot get any other resolution, like 1920x480 @ 60hz to work.
What am I doing wrong? What do I need to change?
I just want 240/480 on this CRT tv.
What am I missing? What should I fix?
