    Is anybody here using this setup or know of a different one?
    Turning the psp go into a console sounds kinda awesome.

    BTW I know it's not cheap. I'm wondering generally about the quality here.

    I have this setup without the LKV8000. At this time it would probably be best just getting a vita TV with one of the TNV exploited games...

    More like, nobody here probably has an LKV8000. And even so, if I were able to go ahead and buy a video processor, at this point I would be going with an xrgb-mini Framemeister over anything else. And that thing ain't cheap.

    I have a LKV8000. It is a digital version of LKV7000.

    Couple things to take note of:
    * LKV8000 does not have a component input (no point in getting a cradle). For PSPGo you need an adapter on top of bundled cable which apparently does not come with the scaler.
    * Beside high-end scaler like XRGB, they probably are the only competent PSP scaler for budget user.
    * They are only suitable for TV user. Meaning if you play PSP game from a distance they look fine. Graphic looks bad when hook up to a PC monitor (playing at close distance).
    * Use 3.5mm port for audio. Don't use HDMI audio. This scaler has a horrible ADC (analog to digital audio converter) chip.

    If you do save up the money for high end scaler, take note that for XRGB-Mini you either need to use composite cable (480i), or PSP D-Input (480p) cable. D-Input is a TV connection only used in Japan. Hence you need to import PSP D-Input cable.

    You can also go with DVDO Edge. That supports Component out of the box, though adds quite a bit of lag unless you enable Gaming mode. Gaming mode however, sacrifice a bit of scaling capability.
