Question Messiah 2 v1.30...video wire needed or not?

sponsored links

 
Just got some of these in and need to get some diagrams printed out for the shop.

On Foundmy it says that the v1.30 doesn't need the video wire anymore.

I just wanted to get confirmation that it is not needed and PSX and PAL PS2 games will display correctly running on an NTSC PS2 on an NTSC TV. (I suppose the other way around would mean it doesn't need it too...since most of the knowledgeable ppl here are PAL region.)


Anyone know a site where I could pilfer the .jpeg images? I don't know how to rip them from the original .pdf instrux.
(I may just edit the Magic diagrams since the pic quality is better.)

Thanks!

Yes they need the video wire for all V1-V6 models. V7 doesn't need the video wire.

At least I have been installing them that way. I haven't disconnected a video wire on a V1-V6 to try it!!

Hmmm, don't understand why there's a video wire diagram for V7 when it doesn't need it. Guess I'll have to play around for a little while before getting anything printed out.

Anyone know if there is a released chip code for the "Video Stabilizer" chip foundmy is selling? Or even what kind of chip it is??

Hmm, I didn't see a video wire for GH-019 or GH-022.

Here's how he breaks it down. Took me a while to understand his logic too.

Video wire is the PS1 fix for Messiah 2

Video stabilizer is just a macrovision off chip. You can DL the hex for this, but I don't know where. It's just a PIC12508 microcontroller that removes macrovision.

The newest diagrams have the video wire info for V7/V8's.
I hooked one up with a switch on a GH-022 and didn't see any difference in the PSX quality. I don't have any PAL games to test out.

I figure, it's in the instructions so it's better to be safe than sorry...and it's only a simple connection.

I did notice that even the V1.30 still has the "shaky" PSX video problem.
Hmm, wonder why they haven't done anything about that yet??
Haven't seen any other chips with that problem, only the M2 and M2 clones...but I guess most ppl don't play PSX games anyway.
