Damn! That's a lot of cash!
Yeah, this Sharp LCD TV monitor is sweet, but is not cheap... Anyways, I think that nothing will beat a nice 22 inch Viewsonic P220f with XRGB2+ for MSXing Smile

Dude! You're willing to pay $800 for a monitor for your MSX and didn't want to spend $50 on an upscan convertor to use your GFX9000? That's bit odd Tongue Alright, try and spend 'only' $750 on your monitor and buy a good upscan convertor... The GFX9000 is a phunny thing to own, I'm sure that *eventually* you'll see some more demos for it.

I tried both MSX2+ (A1WSX) and TurboR (A1GT) with S-video input on Asus 8200

Is there s svidoe circuit for msx2+? I have a modified 8250 (now a 2+) and would like to add s-video?

Well, if I was going for a LCD TV monitor, I would be able to use it with both normal and GFX9000 RGB out. But I don't like how LCD monitors show non-native resolutions...

This is why I ordered XRGB2+

Hi JP,

I'm afraid it's not a simple thing to do, because your NMS-8250 doesn't have S-Video circuit in it. There are generic transcoders that take RGB input and out separate chroma and lumina (this is what S-Video is).

I yould recommend you to use RGB. It's better then S-Video, and may be you can find a TV with SCART in South Africa...

I use S-Video only because my TV doesn't accept RGB (no SCART), but does support S-Video, and my TurboR GT and MSX2+ A1 WSX have S-Video out. If I had an RGB option, I would go for it. In fact I ordered XGRB2+ to hook-up MSX to PC SVGA monitor

Did anyone consider trying out an Amiga scan-doubler? They're quite easy to find...

Amiga scandoublers was hot then typical VGA display was 14" with .38 dot pitch... They just aren't good nowdays. And they are still priced at 50$-100$

XRGB2+ is 180$, but it a damn fine RGB upscan converter.
