Get the best video quality from retro consoles on your HDTV! In this episode, Coury and Try take a look at getting the best picture possible on your retro video game consoles like the Sega Genesis and Nintendo Entertainment System. Find out what it takes to get the best, sharpest, and highest resolution image from your classic video games! We cover different video signals and utilizing the Micomsoft XRGB Mini Framemeister to get an amazing picture on a HDTV in an easy to understand way. This video includes side by side comparisons of direct feed gameplay from multiple consoles utilizing the Framemeister.


  • So much more material to gather for this episode than I realized… very time-consuming

  • Tried my hand at spinning product photography against a greenscreen… more challenging to key out than expected

  • It’s a very vertical timeline… lots of video tracks needed for direct comparisons and over-the-shoulder graphics

  • It was fun how much I could zoom in and maintain fairly good image quality for RGB video sources

  • The timeline was so complicated that it was a struggle to get it to even render… we almost had to delay it!

  • This video is the first time that both Coury and Try appear on screen in the same episode. It worked out so well that we will be definitely be doing it more in the future.
