    The guys of DCHDMI are also working on a PS2HDMI!!!

    This does NOT include any analog-digital-conversion, but is tapping (directly) into the digital signal(s) right before the DACs and creates an HDMI-compliant digital signal!

    This could yield an even better quality than the best component-cables or any of the cheap Chinese HDMI-Adapters!

    This could even produce a better quality than a Framemeister or OSSC (in theory)!
    I am not sure how well de-interleaced content would look like, compared to a progressive picture (either native or by a game which is supported well enough via GSM).

    This also could enable visual enhancements or alterations (see Ultra-HDMI, DCHDMI, the NES-HDMI-Mod, Framemeister, OSSC, etc.) and etc. with next to or even 0 lag!!!

    This is AMAZING IMO, especially since the PS2's DACs ever seem to put out a bit 'milky' and blurred composition (picture-clarity)!
    I hope this can hold up to the PS3-Emulation (visually)!

    I also hope they will support YPbPr AND RGB/RGsB!

    Hopefully people will also make patches for games whose internal resolution is in odd numbers such as x511, x447 etc. (which there are plenty), blurring the image before it can be even affected by the analog video output.

    I believe it should be just about on-par with the BC PS3s, with maybe less display lag as it wouldn't have to go through RSX. Personally I'm not looking for it that much, considering that his designs are quite pricey (DCHDMI is $150) as they're not just "dumb" boards with HDMI transmitter and the cheapest microcontroller to init it which could be in the ballpark of about $20 and certainly enough for lots of people. Maybe someone else will take on that task.

    Well, bit then those people out there could even use a cheaper solution anyway, because that would strip it from a lot potential features, which the pricey implementation of it can do LIVE (at a high res, without lags)!
