RetroTINK-2X Pro Firmware v1.7

Mike Chi has just released a new firmware for the RetroTINK 2x Pro, that ads more functionality to the comb filter switch:  With this update, switching it to “retro” mode will boost the brightness a tiny bit, allowing to compensate for any signals that look a bit dull.

The picture below demonstrates the (slight) brightness boost, using a console notorious for poor composite video output:  The NTSC Sega Master System.  These captures were taken directly into a Datapath Vision E2S capture card and demonstrate both the new brightness boost, as well as the comb filter’s abilities to clear up some on-screen noise (click for full-sized):

As a note, this update only applies to the 2x Pro; The Mini and M already include similar functionality and the 2x SCART is RGB-only, with no need for a comb filter.
