    Hoping experts on M1 Sega CD drives (USA) can shed some light on this, but I found I have to lift the front of the M1 SCD up about 25 degrees from level in order to prevent PCM audio/video skipping....

    The big problem with the 2.4G right now is the EMI noise. Some consoles and/or mods really pick up on it, and it sounds like when you get a cell phone too close to a speaker or microphone. Somebody...

    I only recall CRAM pixels being a nuisance in the overscan area. Was there a game that actually used them for an effect?

    On the colors, they are correct, but set to 255 as pure white. You may be used to pure white being around 240 (effective comparison when hooking up an OG Genesis to an OSSC).

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately Ace and I are finding all sorts of issues with the sound function in the Mega Sg. For example, If you raise the ladder effect past zero, it increases the volume of the YM...

    Don't know if this has already been covered here, but you'll want to turn the PSG down to 28 when you get your Mega Sg (after updating the firmware). I compared waveforms to M1 VA2 and VA3, and 28...

    Well it's not entirely theoretical. The heat generated in the cartridge is very real, and will shorten the lifespan of the cart. However, where the speculation comes in is on just how long they will...

    Had to share these two track rips as they demonstrated a pretty blatant example of the 3438 cleaning up the white noise:

    When ordering surface mounts, I don't want to have to probe each one for accuracy, so paying an extra 20 cents for 10 times more accuracy doesn't bother me. ;-)

    You might as well go to 0.1%. I always do when it comes to stereo pre-amp and output resistors whenever possible. Reduces balance fluctuation chance even more.

    Actually this project started off based on that two-stack chip mod, but I soon realized the attenuation of the 3438 was just wrong and I couldn't get it to balance correctly with the 2612....

    There's no "PSG Chip". It's a track routed to the pre-amp from pin 95 of the VDP. The old mod as shown in RetroRGB's link taps the output pins of the CXA1034P, which is the op-amp the Genesis uses....

    Well the youtube series made it abundantly clear that too many things were being worked on at once, causing budgets to get sapped before anything could be finished. That's poor business management.

    You're confusing 320 mode there on the Genesis. If you look at the entry for 8:7 in that link you provided, it lists the Genesis 256 mode along with the NES and SNES.
