I'm finding that if your primary purpose is playing off of game consoles, then they all kind of suck across the board.

But I've got a Hauppauge HVR-1800.  If I ever get a good HDTV anything to pass through it, I'll let you know how it turns out.

My Dreamcast is awesome, but I haven't managed to figure out how to get it to work on my HDTV since I don't have a VGA input.  I blew some money on a VGA-to-component adapter that didn't work.  I hear VGA-to-RGBHV works; can anyone confirm?

can't you use a regular composite?  It's not like the dreamcast supports much better than, what, s-video?

Dreamcast does VGA.  That's why I brought it up.

While I was not aware of that, wouldn't the result still be no better than s-video?  Does the dreamcast support progressive scan?

Remember how I said FFXII looks horrible on any type of LCD monitor?  (As I found out later, most games from Square look horrible on LCD displays - including the modern ones that I had to test on LCD displays.)

Well, it doesn't look as good as it would on a CRT dinosaur, but DScaler does a good enough job of making XII presentable enough that I don't mind the tiny input lag I get from throwing every filter known to man at it.

Can I express my mild annoyance without a 3-page thread forming out of it?

Eh.

(For what it's worth, that happened because I wrote LCD monitors, decided that TVs weren't really monitors, and just search and replaced.  If you're not exactly homosexual about that, then bite me.)

Anyway!

Media Player Classic gets much better sound (between it, my X-Fi, and my specifically NOT surround sound headphones I still get a good simulation of Pro Logic II) which probably counts for more when you're playing a Final Fantasy.  Plus, no input lag (I've been using MPC to Brawl for a bit earlier today, first time I have in months.)  Both DScaler and MPC will explode if I try to record from them, though.  I'm loathe to use Hauppauge's little app as it has horrible lag AND video quality, but it may be the only app that plays nice with whatever internal compression mechanism they built.  We'll see.

I have no idea why I'm hellbent on being able to record, by the way.  I just sort of want the option open in case I need to show everybody the penis monsters I made in Grafitti Kingdrom or something.

You know, being snarky fits you much more than being rude. You've got the knack for the former and it is a thing of grace and beauty in your hands.

if this happens to derail the goopy slime thread then i am sorry

I think my problem is that I'm very bad at distinguishing between the two.

See?  Every puzzle has an answer!

Speaking of which, I found the hidden sharpness/brightness/etc. settings for my card, and like every manufacturer in the world they've totally screwed the defaults.  I'm finally at the point where I'm liking this arcane setup actually better than regular TV, though I've still yet to bother watching any actual TV on it.  I ought to just do my usual thing of sticking a paper clip in one of the RF connectors and see if it picks up any broadcast stations.
