I’m planning on transferring some 4:3 movies on to VHS for a personal video project I am working on. I have the tapes and the vhs players unfortunately I have no way of getting that footage to VHS via composite.
I have a Raspberry Pi 3 but no apple tv first gen but I know composite on Raspberry Pi isn’t the greatest anyway. With that said I was thinking on grabbing an apple tv and run OSMC and see if that gets me better composite.
I saw a post on the wiki for 720p or 1080p on apple tv and on here one line in the code Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “Disable”
Caught my attention because I believe if I enable it and set quality to SD480p I could get a 480i composite signal from the Green component jack.
Wanted to see if anyone has had an experience with either or and if I can get composite of the apple tv.
I know I can buy a hdmi to av adapter but I’ve had bad luck with using them as they have all died on me. I do have a a computer with an older AMD gpu that actually can do composite out but I don’t have the adapter to get it to work.
Worst case I can just try using the Pi again.
This wouldn’t be used as a daily driver its only purpose would be to get high quality composite into a VHS player.
