After further research on the N64 issue and other retro systems, if your system has a resolution of 480i or less (resolutions less than 640x480) then you're out of luck unless you use an upscaler device, which depending can be anywhere from $100 upto $1000 depending if you want crt scanlines to be shown. Frankly this blows, what a crap job this rca input is. It can only down convert from higher resolutions which is stupid as RCA allows at most 480p therefore as it would have been easier to have an HDMI connection rather than RCA as most devices output digital nowadays. If they wanted RCA then they should have added an upscaler to the system as most systems that use RCA in 2012 are low resolution devices. Who was the brains behind this???! Basically have a high definition device to connect? Down convert to SD format. Got an SD format device? You're shit out of luck unless its 480p. BS!
