Bitfunx RetroScaler 2x A/V to HDMI-compatible Converter and Line-doubler for Retro Game Consoles PS2/Playstation 2/N64/NES/SEGADreamcast/Saturn/MD1/MD2

Please pay attention that the RetroScaler2X do not accept the PAL-M consoles in Brazil.

Product Features

Signals / Resolutions:

The RetroScaler2x can accept 240p/480i/288p/576i NTSC/PAL sources to converter to 480p/576p HDMI-compatible output (480p for NTSC, 576p for PAL). For example 240p signals are supported properly, allowing for a completely progressive linedouble to 480p. 480i signals are deinterlaced and doubled also to 480p. Keep in mind that the output resolution of this device only up to 480p/576p.

Zero Lag:

The RetroScaler2x is a zero lag device, proven using multiple measurements and different devices.

Region Compatibility:

Both NTSC and PAL signals are supported, but they are not converted to each other. That means you can plug in whatever signal your target device is compatible with, but NTSC might not work on PAL HDMI-compatible devices and vice versa.

Filter Modes:

The “FIL” mode is completely preference-based, but the average retro-gamer prefers the FIL mode off for 2D games (SNES, Genesis, etc) and on for 3D games (N64, Saturn, etc). Also, the FIL mode might help reduce flicker with some 480i-only games.


Another great feature of the RetroScaler2x is that it outputs a true 480p60 signal, making it compatible with every device I tested it with! Compatibility is a big issue for retro-gamers, as modern displays aren’t used to the resolution or refresh rate of these older consoles. This device is an excellent help for streamers who want the highest chance of compatibility.

Performance – Audio:

Audio performance on the RetroScaler2X is good although we would have to stop short of saying it was perfect. In general uses there are no issues with the audio digitization but on brassiere sounds like explosions the output may sound a little rougher than it did through the OSSC. This isn’t something you’re likely to even notice on a TVs speakers, though you might if you have an external amp or home theatre system. In that case of course, it’s usually perfectly easy to route audio around the RetroScaler2X anyway.

The Pass-through:

By putting the RetroScaler2X into pass-through mode, incoming composite, s-video or component signals are simply transparent and digitized into HDMI-compatible. Support for 240p is rare in the world of HDMI-compatible, but by adding a simple HDMI-compatible to VGA converter, you can convert the signal back to the analogue domain again. This makes the unit a perfect transcoder to go with 15 kHz displays like PVMs, or of course, the OSSC.

Important safety information

Please observe the following safety precautions when using your Retro Scaler2x.

Use the correct power supply– the Retroscaler2x is powered by a regular 5 volt Micro USB port that can be powered by a normal power supply or powered by a device that has a USB port. Please make sure that the power supply you are using meets any of the above requirements. Never use a power supply that is not regulated to prevent damage to the equipment.

Turn off the power before connecting/disconnecting the device– to prevent damage to the device ICs, always turn off the power before connecting the monitor or device.

Do not expose to moisture Droplets of moisture– may contact the PCB and cause a short circuit. Never submerge the unit in water.

Keep away from fire or high heat sources– RetroScaler2X is not flammable but high temperatures, such as those from a fire or electric heater may melt the plastic casing.

Please supervise children– Retro is not a toy and is not designed for use by children. Please supervise children if they use the Retro.

Buttons, connectors and external controls

Component video input–Connect component video (YPBPR) or RGB with sync on green sources to this input. As a note, the chip used in this device does not support RGB, so an RGB SCART input will never be an option.

S-video input–Connect an S-video (4 pins connector) source to this input, other sources are not support.

AV input–Standard composite (RCA) connector. You can connect sources such as the Nintendo Super Famicom, Nintendo GameCube, N64 etc.

HDMI-compatible video out–All the received video and audio signals will be output on the modern LCD monitor/TVs with HDMI-compatible interface.

Power input–Any decent quality Micro USB charger can be used to power the RetroScaler2x, as it’s a very efficient device. Your are even able to power mine via the USB ports of your TV!

Power Switch–Toggles power off and on.

Input Select (INPUT SELECT)–The input button selects between the composite, S-Video and Component Video inputs, or combination.

Output Select (SMOOTHING)–The smoothing mode button allows you to chose which video mode it’s in

2x Mode (orange led light on ):This is the standard “LINEDOUBLE” mode that outputs 480p/576p. This is the mode that’s the system defaults to when powered on.

FIL (blue led lights on):This mode adds a filtering option to to minimize image aliasing for the 480p/576p output.

Pass-through (both orange and blue LEDs light off):This mode simply output whatever the input signal is, without changing the resolution.

RetroTINK2X and OSSC

You can simply use the two devices in tandem, support both composite video and s-video and advanced features of ossc. Piggybacking the RetroScaler2x to the OSSC is very easy .All you need is a simple HDMI-compatible to VGA adapter. We will be carrying a tried and tested model in our store that fully supports 240p output and does not appear to crush blacks or over-saturate whites. With a suitable adapter in hand, set the RetroScaler2X to transcode mode, connect the HDMI-compatible to VGA adapter to your RetroScaler2X, then connect the output of the adapter into your OSSC via the VGA port. Finally, switch the VGA port on the OSSC to 480p mode (Sampling opt->480p in sampler->DTV 480p).you have access to the OSSCs famous scanline engine and line multiplication modes with all your composite video and S-Video sources. You can also access things like the advanced timing tweaker, allowing you to center the image using the backporch controls or apply a little faux zoom using the V.Active controls.

The following figure is the AV signal input connection diagram:

1.You need to prepare 3.5 stereo male head to lotus female head to connect AV Audio and Ossc Audio.The yellow lotus head is connected to the RCA of the Retroscaler2x.

2.The HDMI-compatible to VGA adapter is used to connect the HDMI-compatible interface of Retroscaler2x and the VGA interface of OSSC.
