By the way, do you have any personal recommendation for a good scart splitter?

"If you want to play the game off the CRT, the simply use the SCART splitter and plug the HDMI out of the OSSC into a capture card - there’s no need to split the HDMI."

Thank you. I am just new to this stuff and I was finding it a bit confusing, your post cleared things up for me. I'll be playing on a CRT and splitting it to the OSSC so that's all I need. Thank you very much for the help.

Thanks for the suggestion and I'll bear it in mind consider it's much cheaper than any alternative, but after going to the effort of getting that sweet crisp RGB picture on a broadcast monitor I'm not sure I want to go back.

I did find this proposed setup though and I think it looks suitable:

I'm new to capture cards and the like, but do you see anything wrong with that? Should I beware of buying a cheap scart splitter or will any do? Presumably any capture device will do when using an HDMI splitter, such as an Elgato HD60 S for example.

Once again sorry for my lack of knowledge and I appreciate the prompt and helpful response.

Hi, sorry for the newbie question but I'm inexperienced with technical aspects such as this.

I run all of my retro consoles (SFC, PS1 etc.) on an NEC XM29 Plus through RGB scart. I connect the RGB scart cable into an adapter (I apologise, I've forgotten the name of the adapter, it's been so many years since I bought it), then a VGA cable from the adapter into the NEC XM29 Plus. It looks like this: https:/​/​imgur.​com/​mOcVULb

Now what I'm looking for is a capture card which will allow me to play these games in the same way on my CRT monitor while connecting a capture card to my PC to record and stream. However, I'm having difficulty finding a capture card which offers RGB scart compatibility (possibly made even more complicated by own setup) and being new to this I wouldn't know a good choice from a bad one anyway.

Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you for your time.
