Hey guys i really need some help
« on: March 01, 2013, 08:28:36 PM »
Hey guys ,how u been , its been a while

anyways this is what has been fryiing my brain for the last 2 days

Its about sega dreamcast/sega saturn.

Im looking to get the best possible video signal. My amplifier(marantz 7002) only has component and hdmi inputs and my tv only has component hdmi inputs.

To get the best picture out of the dreamcast you need a vga cable , but i need to know how to get the vga signal converted to hdmi.  i plan on using a scart cable converted to component so thats ok , but for some games u need to use svideo and i dont have a svideo input.

Is there a box where i can just plug in my inputs that put it out in hdmi or will i have to convert each signal seperatly ?

Yeah i know im a perfectionist and i want the best possible i can get. I plan on collecting as many saturn/dreamcast games as i can guys.

Any help will be appreciated

yeah that is what i plan on using for my dreamcast vga cable. Actually that seems like the best one i have seen mate.

The thing is i need to convert s video signal also , if that box had a s vido input that would be sweet.

have u seen one that converts hdmi/svideo ?

thanks guys , between both of those sites i think i can organise what i need. Getting all these cables etc together are going to be more expensive than the consoles lol , but it will be worth it.

I still have my Dreamcast and never got around to upgrading the standard composite cable. I was under the impression plenty of games can't run through VGA.

I'd check the compatability list's before forking out big coin for converter boxes.

Been researching a fair bit , you can get a dreamcast vga cable . all games work with the DC , its the saturn that you need svideo on hand.
