Default Older consoles on 4k HDTV's

I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck trying to use their old systems on these newer panels yet? Since crt is almost gone, we have to use whatever equipment we can to get our video signals across (scalers, transcoders, etc).

Also suggestions for emulation is banned from this topic. This is for older gaming consoles, not your piracy activities.

I'd imagine you'd use the same hardware that's been used on 1080 panels. Something like a Framemeister.

The affordable solution is to buy a better TV. Pick up a nice 27" SD CRT made after 2000, that should last you a long time. 27" is a good size because it's not too heavy to carry alone and it's not so big that classic games become overly blocky looking...

I'm well aware of the crt format, but I'm currently not interested in discussing it. Maybe someday I might pick up a BVM or something.

Which retro system will you be using most? In my book a crt is MUST have if you are using older retro consoles...if not the games will look like bunk.

Emulators are garbage....I agree on that.

I just read that you didn't want to discuss CRT's,.....sorry for commenting..

Hey it's no problem. I just don't want this thread's subject to shift like the majority of topics I see related to it on just about every gaming forum that's ever been out there.

4k is supposed to be a real game changer if you use lower resolutions and run it with scanlines. The lower range sets (720p, 1080p) introduces their own limits and typically introduce moire patterns if they supply poor scaling, but the more pixels we have to work with, the less chance of that even happening. I'm waiting for someone to take full advantage of this and give us feedback on the results.
