I have a question about the XRGB2+ that i posted on the old boards just before they were closed
and so i didnt get any answer to it. I'm posting it again on the new boards in the hope that someone might see it. I was thinking of getting an XRGB to play my consoles on a vga monitor, because the CM8833 Amiga monitor I use is getting old and I don't want to be stuck without an RGB monitor if it breaks. However I have some questions about the XRGB before I buy one. The firs question is, if say my PS2 is outputting an interlaced 480-line picture that displays on my rgb monitor, how will it look on the VGA monitor? I know that an interlaced display only draws half the picture lines at a time, and I also know that a 15kHz non-interlaced 200-line signal will need to have the lines doubled to work on a VGA monitor. The thing is, since an interlaced 480-line signal is only drawing 240 lines at once, do these lines get doubled so that the VGA monitor shows all the even lines doubled one frame, then all the odd lines doubled the next frame (which would look sorta wobbly)? Or does it put the odd and even lines together to make a full 480-line non-interlaced image? Or else does it keep the interlacing and make the VGA display interlaced? Sorry if it sounds complicated, but I'm just worried that if I get an XRGB it'll display interlaced stuff with weird lines all over it or something.
Also, I heard that it's common for LCD monitors nowadays to support video input from games consoles (e.g. they support 15kHz as well as VGA 31kHz). Is this true? For example I found a monitor here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/default.asp?CartID...getmodule=36335
now it says Inputs: RGB Analogue and 15pin D sub, i wonder does this mean it has an rgb input as well as VGA input? Has anyone else heard of LCD monitors that support RGB (maybe the ones with builtin tv tuners?)
anyway, i hope someone can help if u can b bothered reading thru all of the text
