Normal video modes/ Hacked Video Modes


The SNES can do S-Video, can't it?

I'm going to be stocking Gamecube S-Video cable that I thought are able to be used on the N64 and SNES as well.

360's best options are Component and VGA. HDMI isn't supported.

Which is why you can use the same cable for SNES, N64, and GC

We don't have "RGB" in the US. Only Component -- which isn't supported on the SNES, N64, and many models of the Cube

Ok, and from a UK perspective... I'm looking at as much console to SCART as possible right?

Yes.

As long as you have the right SCART. One big reason we never got this great little device is that it can carry any signal (other then component), this sounds great until you notice it means it can carry any signal, but doesn't have to carry all. So make sure you pick up the RGB SCART cables and also make sure you have an RGB SCART TV.

Also don't buy SCART cables from certain parts of Asia. They have a cable that looks like SCART, but actually uses a different pin out and isn't SCART... it can fry your SCART port on your TV if you use it.

Which is probably another reason we may not have gotten into it, it has a live 10v line or something like that, meaning no hotswitching...Plus why do you guys keep on saying RGB is better than YUV? I don't get it. It's the source material that matters, imo, not whether it's RGB or YUV. So if it RGB is so much better, why? What makes it so great?
