Impressive... Great work MASTER!!!
At every post you make, I am more and more convinced that you are the best person we find to help us to make this this project succeed.
IMO, you really deserves deference and a medal of honor for all contributions you made on PS2 Scene!
For me, it is a pleasure to share info for those people that are interested not only on receive it, but also share our ideas, and help us to become them into reality. I know we still have a long R&D road, but today I reserve me the right to write these words for us!
I am also glad that you joined us here with your precious info posted here and by PM.
For those who want to boot with VGA mode, I suggest that after launching GSM, press any button (to skip debug display that you aren't able to see), and right after that press one of following combos to get out from blind mode:
*These are the presets patching SMODE2 and SYNCV registers.Code:HDTV 480p [Triangle] + [>] * HDTV 720p [Square] + [<] * HDTV 1080i [Cross] + [>] * VGA 448p60 [Square] + [<] VGA 480p72 [Square] + [>] VGA 480p75 [Select] + [<] VGA 768p75 [Select] + [>] * SYNCV VGA 480p60 [Select] + [^] *
HDTV-576p@50Hz / HDTV-1080i@50Hz?
- Oscilloscope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscilloscope)
- A poorman's oscilloscope (http://www.dos4ever.com/uscope/uscope_e.html)
- VGA to PAL and NTSC converter (http://www.epanorama.net/circuits/vg...a2palntsc.html)
... maybe we can get the HDTV-576p@50Hz and/or HDTV-1080i@50Hz modes without using osciloscope, just making A CAREFULL ANALYSIS from the SYNCPARAM Table published on post #324 (http://www.psx-scene.com/forums/show...&postcount=324
1st. Make a comparision between by NTSC(50Hz) and PAL(50Hz) modes' settings to find the differences
2nd. Make a comparision between among all HDTV modes' settings to find the differences
4rt. Infere the pattern
5th. Calculate the HDTV-576p@50Hz and/or HDTV-1080i@50Hz modes' settings, make some algebraic calculations - rule of three (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of...#Rule_of_Three , for instance. Well, some like this.
