GameCube (GCN)

For 480p games (CARBY): 

CARBY (Component) | Framemeister (S-Video)

Reminder: The CARBY is in lieu of the component cable for playing GameCube games in 480p progressive scan mode.



Note #1: Probably half of your GameCube collection supports 480p, but very few GCN games supported widescreen. By default, CARBY uses your TV’s Aspect Ratio setting, which will enlarge the screen while making the games still look acceptable.  However, with some games, you play want to change the TV from 16:9 to 4:3 to see if it looks better.


Note #2: Technically, the GameCube outputs at a scaled 720x480 with rectangular pixels. (This was the format used for DVDs at the time.) So this is larger display area than a 640x480 resolution.

For 480i games (Framemeister):

Note: It’s possible to play non-480p games using the CARBY option, too. In fact, by using CARBY, you have the option of stretching the image to fill more of the TV.



Note: If the game does not display after 2-3 seconds, and it says “NO_INPUT,” then press SVID on the Framemeister remote to confirm input.


There are a few other GameCube-related profiles for the Framemeister (although they may have been made moot by CARBY):
