This is a thread for talking about connecting your GameCube to any display, whether it is an SDTV, CRT Monitor, LCD Monitor, or HDTV.

Please read the site's guide for the GameCube here before posting in this thread.

Also, for extended reading, check out: Video Games in an Era of High Definition

Rules for posting in this thread:
  • Keep it GameCube only please. Avoid bringing up other consoles (this pertains to the primary rule in our forum rules).

  • Display lag note #1: Do not troll the thread with, "Well, I don't notice it, so..." If you don't notice the lag, then you are already satisfied with your setup. You can go back to playing games. Just because you don't seem to notice it in certain games doesn't mean it isn't there.

  • Display lag note #2: HDTV's have lag even when a device is connected at its native resolution, and every display performs differently. Some TV's have very little lag, others have much more. My primary computer display has 16ms of lag no matter what, and my other display made by the same manufacturer has 34ms of lag.

  • Display lag note #3: Only post about your TV/Monitor's performance if you are testing it accuratly. This involves splitting the video signal to the HD display and a zero lag display (SDTV or CRT Monitor), running a game that has a millisecond counter (like a racing game), standing back with your digital camera, taking 20-40 pictures, tabulating the difference in each picture and then averaging the results.

I settled for RGB scart, just couldn't justify the £120+ that they sell for on eBay.

Does Scart output progressive scan? Or is it interlaced only?

I'm pretty sure it's interlaced, I did a side-by-side comparison with PSO on both the DC outputting to VGA, and the cube outputting via Scart. The VGA's 480p was much sharper, but the Scart on the cube is still miles better than standard composite which is the de-facto here in the UK.

I'm considering a Scart to HDMI upscaler, I found a comparison video between a cube outputting via Scart-HDMI vs a Wii via component.

It's worth me trying out as I have various other retro systems that are currently connected via Scart.
