  • Something I realized during my multiple RGB bypass installations, the video signal is very fluid to your 5v + ground source. I tapped into a cap and got horrible vertical lines. I then took 5v from the voltage regulator directly which really helped clear them up.

  • I didn't want to sleep until I finished this because I was too jittery from excitement, and nervous at the same time. Now I can sleep. But this is making me MORE anxious for my HD Retrovision cables. It's KILLING ME!!! I can't wait to try out this out on my Sony XBR Trinitron.

  • @retr0drift @Voultar Nice work. I'd suggest replacing the LM7805s with a couple of TracoPower 2450s. They're a linear voltage regulator and don't require a heatsink. Drop-in replacement. Keeps the voltage nice and steady in my experience.

  • @retr0drift @Voultar Thanks for the inspiration! I was working on a model 1 VA2 with the same RGB board and getting jailbars. Tapping 5V directly from the 7805 helped tremendously and also routing RGBS directly to the DIN. Avoid the board traces at all cost! Super crisp now!
