Unit doesn't look new anymore but it plays imports and has component so I'm happy. I am probably mistake I forgot what time i sent it back for what. But i think the second time the colors weren't lining up and one color was prominent over the other and there was slight color blurring like a shadow. 3rd time i sent it back Post office had played field goal with package and broke the laser I bought from Thesteve for it. All and all i could of bought a brand new one for the money iv spent on this. Almost wish when Thesteve sent it back the second time when box got crushed that the insurance was more than 100. I would of gotten $300 insurance as I would of just collected the money and got a new one. He got 300 on the last trip but was packed so well that they could of played rugby with it.

Anyways works now looks nice. I need to find a more flexible component cable the one I have is stiff as heck.

now wolf build the circuit to confirm it, so we can finalize the design (board layout).
get it produced
8-bit deserves some kick back from board sales

Not sure if this is helpful
But on the final design the white wasn't completely white. On my hd tv I could change the tint on that input so it helped a little. I am also thinking if i could turn the pot more before it stoped It might of helped also but im not a tech guy so i cant say for sure.

Would getting a better quality component cord help at all with colors?

I am super happy that the cdrom is loading games really good. I wish I had super star soldier NA version but have no extra money haha. Need to burn rayxanber III again to see if it can load it. Another game I wish I had.

ya i turned the nob all the way up but cant do it anymore. I am wondering if there is a different radius that would allow me to turn it higher.

ya said it was slightly green
increasing R7, R8 value will decrease green
decreasing R4, R6 has the same effect
we may want pots for R4 and R6 (red and blue chroma)
