Retro Video Adaptor

Revised for 2022.

I initially proposed a design for an all system, retro video adaptor back in 2013, it is here on the old site. That design concept shows it’s age, the output is VGA only and it would not do a great job of upscaling/de-interlacing. I have all the parts to make it but will likely not try it.

The new design concept, will use another video decoder to handle the various analogue video inputs, the ADV7802, this will handle compos(h)ite, S-Video, RGB and YPbPr component video and can scanconvert. These video decoders have some clever tricks to handle non-standard, video, if they can lock onto VHS video, retro consoles are fine.
