Wikis > Products > dbGrafx Booster

The dbGrafx Booster is an audio video enhancer for the PC Engine and Turbografx-16 consoles. It uses a Sony CXA1645 video encoder to amplify RGB and transcodes CVBS and S-Video from the RGB to produce multiple video outputs.


#TODO List the video outputs, provide oscilloscope captures and signal measurements.



The dbGrafx Booster is compatible with the following consoles.

  • Turbografx-16
  • PC Engine
  • Core Grafx

SCART Cables

Not all SCART created contain the same wiring / circuitry; I wrote a blog post on this topic. TL;DR – buy SCART cables from retro_console_accessories on eBay.
