CPC to HDMI
« on: 18:28, 15 January 19 »

Does anyone know if this is any good?
Has anyone used one?
Could it be used to connect the CPC to a PC for screen recording?

Cheers,

Peter

I did see someone using one on an PC old computer and it looked like it worked very well, I've been tempted to get one to give it a try but haven't got round to it.

I have one of these SCART to HDMI converters. I think I paid about £20 for it on eBay, similar to the link in @tjohnson 's mail.


It's fine and I've got no plans to replace it. Perhaps I'm not really very picky but I thought the display was good on my 17" HDMI TV and now I'm using it through a HDMI->VGA adapter on an old flat panel 15" LCD. The picture still looks good to me and way better than the old CPC CRT anyway. Seems to default to 800x600@60Hz.

I have one of these, ok for the money but don't expect a clean image.
Also 60Hz and latency are not my cup of tea for gaming.


For screen recording you will also need a grabber.

Hi Peter

Yes I use one of these BUT I had to add a 330 Ohm resistor from +5 Volts to Pin 16.

Thanks for the replies.

Ray, I'm not familiar with this hardware, what is the purpose of the resistor?

Cheers,

Peter

A topic was already related to that some years ago. This one work fine with a CPC + MP-2 (or equivalent cables)
