I'm using this cable with my upscaler, but I am noting a lot of interference. it's because this cable is AV+S-Video? Someone recommends this cable?
Thanks

Those cables look like they have practically zero shielding, so I'm not surprised you're getting interference with them.

I use these with my GameCube to achieve s-video with a CRT:

Crystal clear picture, no interference.

Speaking of GCN video ughhh when is the GCVideo board going to be finished to the point where I can just ship mine to someone and get it installed already? Daddy want better than S-Video without having to spend 200+ bucks on proprietary cables.

That "interference" could just be the upscale.

Edit your post, add a direct <img>Screenshot JPG</img> (725 wide picture) and not a video link to slug thru.

Also more detail on Upscaler and TV brand with model numbers will help. If you can afford it get the expensive Gamecube Component Cables for 480p instead of upscaling a 480i signal to your flatscreen TV.

Those component cables were the smartest investment I ever made, they're worth the price.

Are you familiar with the GCVideo project though? Silly smart people over on GC-Forever have figured out how to clone the component cables and just make it into an RCA port on the system.

Problem is, right now, it's still a "roll your own" solution with no one that I'm aware of offering an install service. Megalomaniac is planning to eventually though through Bad Ass Consoles.

I've been using my Wii for most of my Gamecube games since I've got component cables for it. Not as good as the real GCN component cables, but it's pretty much the next best thing (without hardware mods, anyway).

It's nice they're offering some sort of alternative, but I got mine before they shot up to near $200 these days. That's a bit much, but I came across a TV with component inputs and I had the cash to burn when i saw them on eBay. As previously stated, a Wii with its component cables is far more affordable, but I can't deny the awesome picture.

The image is great, put there is a "texture" that is driving me crazy. So...is that texture just interference?

This is my video converter Image

Thanks everybody!

The texture is not from the cable, but an upscale issue going from 480i to 720p or 1080p fixed resolution of your flatscreen TV. Some upscaler converter boxes work better but tend to be expensive. Best to start out with the best possible resolution a given console can produce; for the Gamecube that would be the pricey component cables or go the Wii route. LED and LCD TVs display HD beautiful, but fall "flat" when attempting to upscale lower resolutions. It is an issue of the fixed 720p or 1080p screen trying to blow up the smaller resolution.

If you have the room, maybe get a CRT (flat tube) such as the Sony WEGA series for your older consoles; even the SVideo hookup will look so much more crisp vs the upscaler and a flatscreen TV.

My preference is the Sony WEGA HD CRT which displays ALL resolutions 480i-480p-720p-1080i crystal clear.
