Had a couple questions if anyone could help me with I'd be super appreciate, I've googled both of these exhaustively and can't find any definite answers. (everything here is NTSC)
First- I'm trying to run my SNES through my Jrok component encoder. I wired up everything as it says on here but I'm not getting a sync. I found a guy who said to put a 100f 10v capacitor on the sync line which works sort of except that I have to touch one of the points and ground it for a second, then let go and everything works perfectly. I've tried adding a resistor to ground on the line but that does nothing. It stays with a perfect sync until I unplug the cable, then I have to touch it again to get the sync.
Second- I have my Dreamcast running trough the Jrok with a switch to go between 480i and 480p. Everything looks awesome in 480p except there are some faint ghosting lines on bright images; for example on the dashboard the blue on the left of the screen has 3 progressively lighter ghosts to the right of it. It's only noticeable on bright images and it's pretty minor, but I'd like it to go away if at all possible. I've built the RGB cable twice and tried it on 2 different Dreamcast systems so I'm hoping it's not a problem with my Jrok encoder. The RGB cable I built just taps RGB directly from the AV port and has two 150 ohm resistors on the Hsync & Vsync which are then connected together and run into the sync on my Jrok.
Anyway, any help on these would be awesome, I'm out of ideas.
