Subject: Mister Resolution on LG OLED 4K TV
I'm a new Mister owner who is trying to get the optimal video output on my 55" LG OLED TV. I've searched Reddit and various online forums for advice about the correct video mode to use. I'm finding conflicting information and hope others with a similar set can help me resolve this issue.
Some suggest 720p is better; others recommend 1080p; and a few suggest 1440p. Which is it?
I'd like to maintain original aspect ratios and want to apply scanline filters to closely mirror my old CRT television, which I sold last month when moving. If it matters, I'll mostly be playing SNES, Genesis, and NES games until I figure out how to set up the Neo Geo and Arcade cores.

Subject: A few Mister questions
Hey guys, my Mister arrived last week and I'm loving it so far, but I have a few questions for the more initiated. I'm using 8bitdo controllers right now (NES, SNES, Genesis) with USB, but what would be the lowest lag/cheapest solution for adapters? I was leaning towards Raphnet but they're a bit pricey and I'm not tech savvy enough to make my own Daemonbites. Also, I noticed that in some games (SNES, NES, etc) the sounds get 'lost'. I've heard this is an issue with HDMI output. How would I fix this? Also, I've noticed that only some cores have the ability to map the menu to a controller. Is there a way around this? It's extremely convenient on NES, SNES, etc. but I'd like to do it on Genesis and some other cores if possible. Also, possibly stupid question: how do I map save states to a button combo on the cores that support it? I noticed it asks for one button on NES, but how does that work? Sorry for the long ass post and thank you for the help!
Subject: I don't see myself getting a decent CRT screen at a reasonable price. Is a MiSTer still worth getting?
It seems that everybody is pretty clued-in when it comes to the value of CRT screens suitable for gaming. From what I've been researching, consumer CRTs I've been seeing listed locally (or deliverable) aren't that great (100Hz, no RGB). Sony PVMs of the 14" kind are going for around $800 AUD at least. One recent listing shows one that seems to be on its way out as well judging from the excessive green. Finding places around here that actually repair CRTs sounds like a risky venture.
I like the idea of authenticity, but with the developments made in things like Retroarch, is there much of a point in getting a MiSTer if I'd just end up using my PC gaming monitor since a decent CRT is just not on the cards?

Subject: Anyone using MT32-Pi without an IO board?
I have a Raspberry Pi and would like to connect it to the Mister, but I don't have the IO board or the Pi hat.
Someone on the mister forums managed to connect the two boards together with some jumper wires and I was wondering if anyone here has done the same.
If so, would you mind letting me know how the pins between the two boards are connected? I'm useless at reading circuit diagrams.
Someone asked the same question on that forum but nobody replied.

Subject: Ripping ROMS from mini consoles?
Is there any software that will just let you plug a mini-console in and just rip the roms straight out onto a MiSTer device?
Would be nice if I could easily pull roms from devices I've purchased instead of searching rom archives and trying to match rom lists from promotional materials.

Subject: META: Self-promotion on r/fpgagaming.
Hey all, just wanted to share a small clarification about my stance on self-promotion on r/fpgagaming. I've added this to the sidebar:
Note 2: While many subreddits ban "self promotion", we allow it! If you're working on something cool, interesting, or useful for the benefit of the FPGA gaming scene--whether it's an open project or a commercial product--please feel free to post about it. Not only are anti-promotion rules stupid and easy to circumvent, I don't think they really achieve anything useful. While we don't want daily spam posts advertising the same thing over and over again, we do want to know about the latest developments of whatever you're working on!
The FPGA gaming scene is heavily grass roots, community-driven and open source. We have a whole cottage industry of people all over the world making things from cores, to boards, to cases, and more.
As I see it, one of the goals of this subreddit has always been to keep myself and others up to date about the latest news and developments in this scene. Another goal of this subreddit is to connect developers and makers with the community of users.
So, while many subreddits out there take a hard-line stance against self-promotion, I think it's consistent with the goals of this subreddit and the nature of this community to allow and encourage people who are working on things to just come and directly share with us the latest updates about what they're working on.
In other words, I'd like to explicitly allow members of this community (be it people or businesses) to share announcements or substantial updates about relevant projects or products that they're working on.
WARNING: The only caveat to that is, don't spam. If you don't have something new to share, then please wait until you do. Don't just post advertisements to the same information or projects every day/week/month. Like most things on r/fpgagaming, there's an element of trust involved in allowing people to self-promote. I want to create a space where people can share the cool stuff they're creating, and in order to do that we need to all use our best judgement and not do things that take advantage of that.

Subject: Do you want Turbo on your DaemonBite Arcade controller? Here it is!
This doesn't apply to anyone who purchased their DaemonBite Arcade encoder from DaemonBite.com as I believe that already has Turbo enabled. But if you used his repository and programmed a Pro Micro (or similar microcontroller) yourself, you don't have the ability to enable Turbo on a button. Until now!
I forked the OG repository, and added Turbo functionality. If you want it, you need to clone my fork of the repo, and use that to program your micro controller. Also, you need to wire up to pin 7 on the pro micro (or whatever pin is PE6 if you're using a different microcontroller) to another button.
Once that's done, you just need to hold the Turbo set/unset button (what you wired to pin 7), and press the button you'd like to enable/disable Turbo for.
