Subzero 2 RGB fix –
So I've done some research into a problem I've been having with component video and I think the RGB fix is causing video to get corrupted. I'm all NTSC so that's not going to do a ****ing thing for me anyways.
Does anybody know if it's possible to disable the RGB fix on this chip? Everything else works fine. Oh, and my PS2 is a v9.
I posted a similar thread awhile ago so I apologize if anyone feels I'm spamming or being redundant.
So I just ran some more tests with this chip, and if you boot with the chip off, it still boots in RGB mode (setting in system config has no effect). This leads me to believe that it would be possible to cut a wire on the chip to turn the RGB fix off. Anyone got any ideas?
Haha what the hell..
So like I just said, it booted up in RGB mode with the chip off...Until I rebooted the PS2. I tested it with a copy and it is definitely running with the chip off; good 'ol red screen of denial comes up. Now component video works perfectly. What the hell is up with that?
I had the same problem on a V4 using component video cable. The video would go apeshit when playing a dvd movie. It was never a problem any other time (playing games, booting the system, whatever)
using Composite (RCA cables) or S-Video did not have this problem.
I also had the exact same problem with the modbo chips when watching a movie, but with the modbo's you could disable the chip to watch the movie, and the problem was gone.
Yeah. I just thought it was really weird that I had to disable the chip, and then reboot it again for the video to actually work for DVDs..it was running unmodded but the RGB stuff was still going. Dunno if it's a funny wire or what but it always works after the reboot and everything else works fine.
Ah well, it works well enough.
the only way to disable the fix is to disable the chip.
Suits me fine now that I got it all worked out I admit, I was a n00b.
