    I don't think they're fixable with the current chip (TCT-6803 IIRC) that they're using for these. It's intended for use in handhelds with a 320x240 LCD so it outputs 9-bit digital RGB at that resolution, scaling up 256 wide mode and dropping the extra color bits needed for S/H. The Fei Hao (and similar consoles like the Retron HD) combine that chip with an HDMI scaler for connecting to a TV, but the output is already a mess before it gets to the scaler.

    Maybe we'll get a TCT-6804 or something that's more purpose-built for HDMI, but I am not terribly optimistic.

    I bought the newest version and there are a few changes.



    The casing looks similar to the last one, but now there is no "Retro Genesis" logo on the top. It seems they are all branded "Retroad" now instead of "Fei Hao". They seem to have changed the audio and now the left/right sound channels are correct; the previous version with stereo sound had reversed sound channels. It sounds a little clearer, although the volume is lower. The seller said there were complaints about the missing shadow/highlight effects, so they changed the composite video output. Now on this one there is shadow/highlight effects, but only when using the composite av jack. The HDMI jack still doesn't have the shadow/highlight effects. I also noticed the composite video quality is poorer than the older versions, probably due to the change they made to enable the shadow/highlight effect.

    It also has 170 built-in games and they changed the box so now it has a carrying handle and opens from the front.

    Well, we now only need to have H/S working with the HDMI output and it will be the perfect MD clone
