The VGACTV2 is a general purpose VGA to Component Video transcoder that will theoretically work with all valid horizontal scan rates all the way from 240p/15khz to all VGA resolutions only limited by the analog video bandwidth (300MHz). Since this transcoder is used in various complicated setups (arcade emulator setups), the board includes debug information and easy access to sync signals synthesized by the transcoder, which can help debug problems. The following are the device specs and feature list.

Sync Compatibility:

  • HV Sync (Any Polarity)
  • Composite Sync (3.3V to 5V)

Video Signal Compatibility:

  • Video Input: 0.7Vpp Signal @ 75Ω termination
  • Video Output: 1.4Vpp Signal with series 75Ω output resistance, ~300mV Sync Tip
  • Will work with any DC offset at input
  • Output biased at 0V
  • Output disabled until valid signal detected


  • Free running composite sync, horizontal sync, and vertical sync output regardless of the type of incoming cync
  • Video Info Silkscreen that displays incoming signal lock and horizontal frequency

I have owned one of these for about a year now, I also tried alternative on eBay but I stuck to this one. Of all I tried 3 different models so far this is the one with the best quality and didn't get any noise interference in the signal. Well worth it.

works great!
I have been driving my CRT tv through component cables at 480i and wanted something closer to authentic for arcade games. I looked into modding my TV for RGB but decided to give the VGACTV a try. I'm super happy with the results! Arcade games in GroovyMAME are noticeably sharper than my old setup and I didn't have to solder.

Wonderful product. Never had any issues with it, and it was around before other products were. The price could come down a bit now that Jam's selling one for much cheaper, but this transcoder will serve you well!
