Getting S-Video from a NESRGB-modded Famicom2

Post by Myria » Thu Jun 30, 2016 7:57 pm

I have a NESRGB-modded A/V Famicom. I use it with a GameCube SCART cable, and I get SCART RGB output just fine. However, sometimes I take my Famicom2 on the road with me (particularly, to *GDQ).

I don't want to bring my full setup--my XRGB-3, DVI+audio-to-HDMI converter box, etc.--with me. When I travel, I'd prefer to use S-Video output, because it is much easier to find a TV to which I can connect my Famicom.

The Famicom2 has the Multi A/V port of the SNES, and SNES already has an S-Video cable for it (as do N64 and GameCube). It'd be nice if I could hook up the NESRGB such that I can use a SNES/GC/N64 S-Video cable with my Famicom2.

Doesn't the NESRGB add Y and C outputs? Should be able to connect those just fine - http://www.gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id= ... ndomultiav

The NESRGB already has chroma and luma outputs, just wire them up to the multiout and you're done.

In addition to what's been said already, you'll want to double check your S-Video cable to be sure it's actually connecting separate Y/C signals. A lot of the cheap ones just feed composite to both. It usually works, but it looks like crap.
