About Pluto Chip
Uses GC Video 3.1 (latest current version)
- direct digital video output with no analog intermediate for best quality
- optional linedoubler to convert 240p/288p/480i/576i modes to 480p/576p
- optional scanline overlay with selectable strength hybrid factor
- SPDIF digital audio output
- user-friendly on-screen configuration
- on-screen menus controlled with a Gamecube controller or an IR remote control
- (certain boards only) auxillary analog video output
- Linedoubling of 480i/576i modes looks very ugly. If your display accepts these modes directly, it is recommended to not use linedoubling for them.
- The primary target of the project is the DVI output, the analog output (if available) is purely a "bonus feature". Some DVI output settings may disable certain analog output options.
- Although GCVideo tries to make the output signal as standards-compliant as possible, some homebrew software uses video parameters that are too far away from normal video standards to correct them. Such homebrew software may not work with some displays.
- GCVideo does not attempt to read the capabilities of the display, so it is possible to set the output to something that the display does not support, resulting in a corrupted or no picture.
