    As a retro gamer you will have no doubt in your gaming life encountered troubles trying to get an older console to run on a modern display. From no signal whatsoever to disappointing quality, the sad reality is that our gaming past isn't built for HD Televisions - or is it? A new adapter is currently in development to bring a HDMI out port to the Sega Dreamcast, and potentially other consoles too.
    As of recent YouTube user electronash has been uploading a selection of videos displaying his efforts to bring retro consoles up to scratch with modern standards in terms of display. Using a custom built FPGA and HDMI Transmitter board, this add-on to the Dreamcast sits beneath the console's disc drive, providing a new port on the reverse of the system. Taking a direct feed from the console's video and audio output, a crisp 640x480 signal is sent outwards in a format compatible with just about any HDTV.
    As you'd expect, the results are rather fantastic - something shown this time round with Daytona USA. Other videos on electronash's YouTube channel show similar efforts underway with the GameCube and Nintendo 64. But if that wasn't enough already, in the description for this latest tech demo is something really promising - the fact that electronash believes this new creation may soon be suitable for a wide ranger of other consoles, and potentially handhelds too.

    While no release date nor price have been announced for this board, be sure to keep a close eye on electronash's on-going developments through his YouTube channel.

    I'd do it if I still had my dreamcast, although, I have no real reason to as I'd never play it.

    After reading the article, it seems its pretty easy to achieve a similar function just by using scart or VGA to HDMI converters, which arent expensive, but this mod has no lag times and so on, which would be beneficial to gamers obviously.

    I miss modding consoles for no reason.
