RetroTink 2X Mini - S-video, Composite, to Digital Video Output

Please Note: A micro USB charger / cable is required for power  (Includes Device only, unless the "Add power adapter" option is checked above).  You can also power off of a USB port on a TV with a micro USB cable if you prefer. 

For s-video support with a Nintendo 64 console you must use the optional N64 S-video cable available as an add-on. Both NTSC and PAL are supported with the cable!



The 2X-MINI takes the same technology that has powered the rest of the TINK2X products and puts it all in a simple, easy and fun package. 


The MINI is the ideal companion for N64 consoles with the use of an N64 S-Video cable (available as an add-on) for the best possible image quality from an unmodded system. In fact, the 2X-MINI is even compatible with S-Video capable PAL N64's using an s-video cable!


  • Professional injection molded enclosure
  • Inputs: S-video and Composite
  • Output: Digital Video
  • Automatic format detection: NTSC, PAL, PAL-60, PAL-M*, NTSC-443* and SECAM*
  • Adjustable comb filtering for Retro (notch) and Video (2-D comb)
  • USB firmware upgrade capability - no special tools needed
  • Note: Requires microUSB cord for power (can be added above). The 2X uses an advanced power supply filtering circuit and is tolerant of virtually any USB source. Best would be the port on your TV or display if you have one.
  • Optional S-video cable for N64 available as an add-on (*highly recommended if used with the Nintendo 64 console)


*PAL-M, NTSC-443 and SECAM auto-detection and support have been implemented in the firmware but only limited testing has been done due to the inavalibility of these devices in the US.


CAUTION: Sega Genesis and some models of PSOnes do not produce off-spec signals and may not display correctly. For Sega Genesis, we recommend using a RGB/Component cable with the RT2X-Pro or SCART. For PSOne, we recommend using a PS2 as there are no known issues.


NOTE: All MINIs ship with the original v1.0 firmware. The v1.0 firmware contains the necessary code for the factory to program the anti-piracy measures and perform QC checks. Firmware upgrades will be posted when ready.

    Best option for N64

    Posted by DarkXander on Sep 24th 2021

    After testing Hyperkin and other cheaper product, I've finally manage to find a product that allow me to play N64 games on my 4KTV without having to mod my console. The image clarity is really the best we can get from a unmodded N64 and the colors are really great. I can also only assume that the quality improvement will be the same for other SD console!

    Astounding S-Video

    Posted by ManicSocratic on Jul 22nd 2021

    Going with Hyperkin, Pound, or some cheap generic scaler will never give you results as good as a RetroTINK. N64, Saturn, Playstation, and SNES will look as crisp as you could possibly want without going for RGB or console mods.

    If your console outputs S-Video, the results will be beyond what you could ever imagine. Grab a RetroTINK Mini and enjoy beautiful visual quality that's also lag-free.

    Best Option for N64 on Modern TVs

    Posted by Jesse on Jul 19th 2021

    I recently broke out my old N64 to revisit Perfect Dark, and plugging directly into my HDTV was a blurry nightmare. Using the Retrotink 2X Mini with the Svideo N64 cable makes a noticeable difference and is perfect for people like myself who don't want to mod the system and/or spend a ton of money on other options. This is the way to go for a better picture at a more reasonable price.

    Retrotink 2X Mini

    Posted by Fasi Rai on Jun 8th 2021

    This is a very good upscaler which I used for my old NES System from 1987. I have a 4K Samsung HDR Television which upscales it to 4K resolution. I love the fact that the colors look so vivid and the image is not pixilated. I would compare the image quality to the NES Online Version of Switch which unfortunately does not have all the NES games. I love playing games like Contra and Double Dragon on my 4K HDR TV and I wouldn't ask for anything more. Buy this device you will be very happy that you made this purchase.

    Retrotink 2x mini

    Posted by Stanley on May 18th 2021

    After a very poor experience with the H*perkin HDMI cable connected to my Sega Saturn, the Retrotink Mini was a welcomed product and experience.

    Turning the smoothing filter on for Nights into Dreams makes the game look great on modern HDTV's. The RetroBit S-Video cable is a great item to accompany this with for any other interested Sega Saturn owners.

    Absolutely love it!

    Does the job reliably

    Posted by SB on Apr 12th 2021

    I wanted a clearer signal for my Nintendo 64, so I picked up this and an S-Video cable. It looks way better than running the RCA output directly to mu receiver. The smoothing mode on the Retrotink looks great, too. Makes the N64 look how I remember it from back in the day.

    Excellent Update to the classic

    Wonderfully simple to use, even for newbies. It produces a wonderful picture for any retro console. It's affordable too!
