Ok so my TV is incapable of displaying ps1 games through component. But i am wondering if there is a way to upscale the ps1 games to 480i or higher using free mcboot for my ps2?

I have tried that for many years for PS2 games and it always still looks awful! Both GS Mode Selector and XPloder seem to be really temperamental, occasionally I might get one game that benefits with it but it's so much fiddling around and down to luck really.

Most hdtv are incapable of outputting a 240p signal through component..most samsung hdtvs are capable of this though.

Through component? I have put my PS2 on Component and it looks horrid, so jaggy - Which is why i tried the MCBoot way and still got nowhere.

My problem was when i had my ps2 hooked up through component and played a ps1 game. My LG tv couldnt handle such a low resolution (240p) through component and the screen would be bkack and day errror....samsung tvs are known to be capable of supporting this though...theres lists of tvs that can and cannot on Google. My original question was if i had free mcboot would my ps1 games upscale so i can play through component on my tv.

For me component gives the best picture versus composite which sucks

the issue with ps2 component is that most games flick between resolutions on loading menus and title screens which causes issues with newer tvs as they automatically try to give you the best image.... but really just fuck it all up.
Led tvs are the worst for playing retro on, everything will look like it resembles a spectrum. But in general the more dots your tv has, the worse your 240p games will look. also some newer tvs may show component signal a lot darker with no way of altering it.

Ps2 upscales ps1 games automatically and theres also an extra smoothing option, but i dont think any will run under component, however using a ps3 will, but i find the emulation on ps3 a bit poop.

a hdpvr will upscale slightly, and will output most resolutions, i use a hdpvr 2 gaming ed and a rocket both by hauppauge. A framemeister ive heard has a tiny delay which is noticeable if your a regular gamer.
