The picture quality is not bad if you set the Dip switches right. It's not as good as the $100 big boxes or a progressive scan box, or a device specific box, but it does the trick and is quite adequete.
Really? I just couldn't get it quite right... too much, uhm "page tearing" (in lack of a better description). Any tips mate? I just might give it another go, or maybe you can recommend another product.
Any sub $100 VGA box will do that, even the device specific ones. I don't use the pass through myself. As I have to unhook the monitor to use my DC anyway, I do the same for my PS2/Xbox if I'm not using my other monitor.
I don't mind paying for quality. This was mostly a test. However, if I do
pay $100+ for something like this a "working" pass through is a must.
Anyway, have you had any problems with it getting hot? I find it a bit alarming that it acctually caught fire, might just have been my bad luck (it think it was a short circuit, probably because some Einstein had used some sort of sandpaper inside it. To cover what kind of ic-circuit it uses I´ll bet.)
Sorry for the OOT, move it if you must.
