HDMI upscaling on a budget

I love my CRT to death, but sometimes a more compact option is needed. Does anyone know of an HDMI upscaler that doesn't cost $400, outputs 50 Hz without artifacts or dropping frames, and shows aspect correct 4:3 with black bars on a 16:9 display? The $30 converters on eBay are crap. Specifically, has anyone tried these KanexPro converters? http://www.kanexpro.com/converters/composite/

MagerValp, what is the horizontal output resolution of the RetroTink 2x?

My recipe is a Sony YR-1000 + OSSC, because that way I can get 1:1 c64 pixel vs HDMI pixel mapping.

I’m not sure, check with Mike Chi in the vgp forum.

Were you happy with the RetroTink 2x at Datastorm?

Yes, though I have to play a bit more with it before my final verdict. I could only stay until 9pm on Friday and missed most of the party, but it performed well until then.

The stream looked like cam-quality. Did you use this new device as a source for the stream like you announced a few post earlier?

SceneSat couldn't get their capture card to work, so they set up a cam instead.

I took MagerValp's place and ran all C64 stuff on Datastorm and I am very happy with the quality of the picture. No apparent jerky pic, lag or other disturbing stuff.

Ok, so does this mean scrollers are smooth and stable and it doesn't try to de-interlace?

Yep. The RetroTink 2x doesn't do any frame rate conversion since it's scanline based, and it outputs a progressive 480p image which your TV won't try to deinterlace.

Jope: Would you mind sharing your OSSC settings for a pixel perfect image?
