There are indeed analog-to-HDMI converters out there that do work fine and unlike your experience with the chinese Video-to-VGA converter I would expect that their output will in most cases stay "future-compatible". Although there are a lot of bad things that you can do to to a VGA signal to cause trouble on modern displays but not a CRT, in my experience HDMI is much more "hit-or-miss" - i.e. it either works fine on everything or on almost nothing. In a few cases there are still issues with unusual resolutions, but a converter can solve that by scaling the signal to a standard resolution. > This would be tricky, because most Commodore home computers do not > output properly interlaced video. Many early consoles don't do that either, even on the Playstation 2 and Gamecube a few games still use non-interlaced 15kHz modes similar to the C64. > A bonus would be to make it so low-power that it would work with the > small power supply that is available on the HDMI jack. The 5V line in HDMI(/DVI/VGA) runs from source to sink which is the wrong direction for this use case. It is used to power the EDID EEPROM in the display and some devices also assume that there is no valid input signal if the source does not power that line. -ik Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2015-01-04 00:00:04
