    Easy Plug and Play Option for High Quality Video Output

    Posted by Brad Schneider on Jun 27th 2023

    The Carby by Insurrection Industries is an amazing device in such a small footprint. Comes with a handy remote to control the bevy of video output settings. Easy to setup and control with its intuitive on-screen display. If you want a simple solution and be able to upscale and effectively play your Gamecube on a High Definition screen, this is it. On a related note, I recommend getting the support brace made by Retro Frog to go along with it. It properly eliminates the stress and sag of an HDMI cable when plugged into the Carby and will greatly mitigate wear and tear on the back port.

    Best Value

    Posted by John on Jun 2nd 2023

    This adapter will give you all you need, with most features that the more expensive option has. The quality is great. It also comes with a remote that works nicely for changing the settings. Would probably recommend this one over any other

    Perfect for what I needed

    I haven`t been in the insides of the settings, but just the AV to HDMI is worth the price.

    Easy Digital Out from GameCube

    Posted by Shawn on Mar 7th 2022

    This product is great because it gives you 480p, true digital audio and video output from the GameCube. The 480p resolution means the image may be softened by your HD TV. Also, some games cannot output 480p natively and will not look as good as possible without using a force 480p hack. Overall, this is a cheaper and easier alternative to installing an HDMI mod in your GameCube.

    Invaluable upgrade especially for Game Boy Player use

    Posted by Ken F on Dec 27th 2021

    Coming from previously using the RetroTINK-2x with my GameCube, the Carby provides crystal-clear picture with nearly the same responsiveness. I attempted to perform some test recordings but my observations were likely limited by the capture rate of my webcam; there was at most one frame of difference (at 60fps), if any, between the RetroTINK and the Carby. The included remote and menu functionality is icing on the cake; I especially appreciate the built-in volume control, since some GBA games can get ridiculously loud.

    This isn't meant to throw shade at the RetroTINK-2x at all; I still use that with my NES/SNES/N64 and it's an amazingly versatile low-cost option, but especially GBA games on the GameCube heavily benefit from the sharper picture via the Carby via the GameCube's digital output, so this is a worthwhile investment if you're a heavy GameCube / Game Boy Player user.

    Solid little device that allows your old Game Cube,(Digital/Component connection model only), to connect to modern TV's via HDMI connection. In turn it allows you to run the games in (Progressive Scan Mode) accordingly. It's a nice little bump in visual quality for us Retro Gamers ;) Can't beat the price either for a quick and easy all in one solution vs. the alternatives on the market. Highly recommended!

    Plug n' Play GameBoy Glory

    Posted by Donald on Sep 27th 2021

    There are a plethora of options this device offers which can be accessed using the included remote but I haven't yet felt compelled to mess with any of them. But more options are always better than too few. My main purpose for purchasing the CARBY was to use the GBI homebrew to play pixel perfect GameBoy games and it delivered, especially when coupled with an HDMI to Component convertor and a RetroTink 5X Pro and ESPECIALLY with the 5X Pro's LCD filter. Truly a thing of beauty. Great price, great device, makes your GameBoy games extra spice...-y.
