Info about cable: https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-boar ... PbPr_Cable
As probably everybody know, VGA isn't native TV input and not all TV have this input. Another problem of VGA output is vertical frequency minimum of 56Hz(60Hz for most monitors). So scandoubled or interlaced video produced by MiST for PAL cores are out of VGA specs. So only few monitors and TVs can accept such VGA signal.
SCART cable can help in some cases, but today it's not a common connector already. Also most countries outside of Europe don't have TV with SCART. SCART limits video to interlaced video only.
So, i introduce a new and more suitable solution - YPBPr connection. YPbPr cable is most common among analog connections today. And it's a world standard unlike SCART. YPbPr supports both interlace SDTV(576i50, 480i60) and progressive EDTV(576p50, 480p60) video which means you can use scandoubled video through this connection. More interesting is that you can output both interlace and progressive videos from different cores through single cable without re-connection. And since YPbPr supports HDTV, cores have potential to output 720p, 1080i and 1080p. All these resolutions are in standard unlike that semi-VGA signal for selected monitors.
I've updated Firmware and all my cores
to support new video output. NES and C64 cores updated in binary repository. Minimig_AGA with YPbPr support is here: https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-bina ... 170113.zip
I hope Minimig original repository will include YPbPr soon.
Anyone is welcome to test new video mode.
Some TV/Scalers can be picky to precise frame format. I found some scalers don't like 320 lines scandoubled video (640 total lines instead of 625 by standard), while others work fine.
