3.5" N64 Screen Fail

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

3.5" N64 Screen Fail

Post by Snipeye » Mon Apr 11, 2011 9:17 pm

I had a problem with one of theses screens recently, and I think I know why...

As I understand it, the n64 outputs it's video in 240p, and most TV's simply interpret that and use it as 480i. These cheap screens don't. Anybody here good with screens and knows a way to convert 240p to 480i with an inline converter on the video line or something? Would really help.

I think your only option is to try another screen and hope you get a different chipset. I had a screen that did that.
