That is literally just your opinion. The only thing that matters is that the signal at the end of the SCART connector is correct. How it get's that way is pretty much irrelevant. You'd have a point if these consoles had female SCART plugs on the back and you were trying to connect them with a simple male to male SCART connector, but that's not how it works.I don't care that Gamecube used a DAC and Genesis 2 uses caps/resistors, the lesion that we ALL should have learned from this is DONT DO THAT.
Proper = At output the signal is set, the device complete, the cables to connect it are just dumb copper that merely transport a signal (not alter it).
Right, so if someone tries to hook it up incorrectly it won't work correctly. That's true for almost anything.That way no one is bound to using any specific cabling, or getting incorrect values if they decide to hook up directly.
That is laughable. If you want to buy a cable from boutique custom cable manufacturers that only take orders once every six months then sure you can get 8 PIN mini DIN SCART cables, but to suggest that 8 PIN mini DIN cables are easier to get than the nearly ubiquitous Genesis 2 cable is a joke. Not to mention the special variants like the Rad2X cable and the HD Retrovision Component Cables. This offers you a ton of options as far as cable and scaler selection.
The HD15 is not pushing SCART values, it is DC coupled RGB which is what a a VGA equipped monitor like the stock Vewlix monitor expects to see. SCART is AC coupled, and to get AC coupled video you either need capacitors inline in the SCART cable or on the PCB. It does not matter which way you do this as long as it's done. No additional components are needed on the PCB to generate the signal for the 9 pin mini din, it comes directly off the RGB amp.I don't understand in respect to this device why that GEN2 cable is an easier/better option?
IE the HD15 port must be pushing proper SCART values already, so you'll take that perfectly fine signal (that you would only need to add a 8pin mini din) and further skew it to get what would be proper values for the 9pin mini din when used with a Gen2 SCART cable?
