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.
Happy new years everyone! Here's a firmware update for the RT2X-Pro: https://t.co/8xG8tYrXco
Recalibrated the 'Retro' mode for 0.7 V standard video levels. Output should be more vivid for the majority of the use cases. pic.twitter.com/ZJYjz4mThd
