strange video and audio glitch with CD roms only !!

16 Jun 2020, 00:44

PCEngine model: coregrafx 1 with MODS = Recap + RGB mod
Power Supply: 3rd party , 9V (regulated) 1.25A max. (I bought this PSU here https://retrogamesupply.com/ it was recommended on a specialized PCE forums).
Video cable: RGB Scart cable, Sega Mega Drive 2 / Genesis 2 RGB SCART PACKAPUNCH PRO CABLE, retrogamingcables.co.uk
SD card brand: Sandisk ultra 64Gb micro SDXC 1 10 A1
Region modded?: NO
SSDS3 revision 1, 2 or B?: Version B, reception on June the 15 th 2020
In Game Trigger enabled in the Options menu? NO
Any other details specific to your setup: Samsung LCD TV Set (max 1080p), xrgb framemeister with last firmware.
I'm using the REDUMP set, for the cd rom games....


Problem or Issue: I have this problem, only with CD roms.
I have problem during cut scenes or introductions : sometimes the screen is black , I can see that the TV go back to 720p mode.
it looks like usual framemeister's problem when you switch from one resolution (like 240p) to 480p : you have a black screen fro few seconds and it comes back.
In my case, here, with my present problem, sometimes I can't see the image, sometimes the audio is stopped, then come back.
I tried with Akumajou Dracula X - Chi no Rondo and I have problems with the introduction (german speech...); also have problems when you can see Belmont 's preparation , when The giants attack ,...
I tried other game, like steam heart's : also this problem.
when I tried Ai Chou Aniki, I can go to the menu's game and then I start the game and .... game over !!
I tried to check my connections (Sega Mega Drive 2 / Genesis 2 RGB SCART PACKAPUNCH PRO CABLE), my power unit.
I don't have any troubles with Hu card, only with CD roms.
I tried to use another source for the image : same problem.

Is the Super SD System 3 compatible with the xrgb framemeister ?
I will try to get another brand for my SD card, when I can get my hands on one...
I previously used a turbo everdrive V2 without any trouble .. but it's only Hu cards, so....

is the Sandisk ultra 64Gb micro SDXC 1 10 A1 "enough" for the Super SD System 3 ? Do you need very high speed SD card ?
I just received my Super SD System 3 and well.... not very pleased with it !
Last information : I don't get any audio Buzz (but it's a revision B, so it's normal, I guess...).

I'm also using my saturn with my xrgb framemeister without any trouble at all.....

Those are all Framemeister issues. It’s a well known fact that it’s doesn’t like the PCE video signal. Not a SSDS3 related issue.

Fix it by going into the FM menu and adjusting the sync level.
