    The GameStation is a SNES Clone with a Sony CXA1145P Encoder:

    The Sony chip can output Composite, S-Video and RGB.

    The same chip is also in the Master System or Mega Drive. I've just used this guide for the RGB mod:

    I used Luma as sync.

    I didn't want to build a new cable, so I've re-used the Neo Geo CD cable, because it doesn't contain any resistors or capacitors.

    I'm very happy with the mod. It's easy to perform and the picture is very sharp.

    I did it to my Gamestation. However, I was not happy with the CXA1145 and I replaced the whole video encoder circuit with the newer CXA1645 encoder. I also removed the RF modulator and soldered a Genesis/MD 2 AV port in its place so I can use it with a scart cable from the rear.
