I recently got myself an older version of the gamecube along with a component cable because I wanted to play the games that I remember fondly of in the childhood. Also got adapters/converter to convert the component signal to HDMI. The issue that I have is that when I connect everything up the displayed image is much darker than is was on our 10 year TV. I have tried with both types of display signals (composite and component) and both was the same issue with brightness. The monitor that I am using has a brightness of 250cd. Also have tried playing around with settings on the monitor and gamecube but to on avail. Not sure what the issue is here and not sure if it can be fixed with a different monitor that has higher brightness capabilities. Looking for suggestions.
