Extron Emotia PSU

The extron emotia line is a great device, as some of its models have the ability to downscale progressive scan content (480p+) to 240p! This can be great for those who want to play with real scanlines or on monitors that don’t support 480p. Check out RetroRGB’s page for more information.

However, they are often sold without power supplies, or the power supplies cost as much as the device itself. The device requires +5V, +12V, and -12V. Conveniently these are all available on a standard PC power supply, which are cheap and plentiful. I am in the process of testing one of these that I made with a female DIN port and a male to male 5 pin DIN cable to plug into the Emotia to clean things up. If it works out I will put up a page where you can commission me to make one, for much less than you can but an official one. These devices deserve to be used!

Update: be careful if you decide to make one of these. I haven’t been able to nail down the correct pinout and it’s possible to kill your emotia.

Thicc Cable For All

I have tested out making some cables with the multicore coax cable and I have to say it works wonders. If you’d like me to make you a custom cable and use this instead of regular shielded cable I can do so for a slight upcharge due to the higher cost of the cable and the extra work involved getting this cable to cooperate with connectors. All cables made with this Thicc Cable will be sleeved in this braided sleeving, available in black (pictured below), black and red (example here) or black and blue.61e5u1g4fol-_sl1000_

Multicore Coax – The Gold Standard

I bit the bullet and bought some multi-core coax cable, but now I have way too much of it. If you would like some high quality multi-core coax cable I am selling it by the foot over here. I’m pretty sure this is the only place (in the US anyways) where you can get this type of cable by the foot at a reasonable price. Check it out!

GCDual Cables

Component cables for citrus3000psi’s GCDual mod are now available over here. These work really well, especially with the jumper set so the cube will automatically switch to component when you plug these in! I have one set on hand and can make more on request.
