DMG TV Out IPS Kit (RIPS TV Version / V5)
Now available on RGRS (affiliate): https://retrogamerepairshop.com/products/game-boy-dmg-rips-v5-ips-backlight-tv-version-av-out-consolizer-with-color-palettes-mod-kit?ref=1in532q43k Older versions of this kit V3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7fdn3bf8GM OSD/V4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qVffKBdELI The previous iteration of this kit used a much better LCD but it looks like they swapped to the LCD they were using for an even older version (V3) instead (or at least very similar). The OSD/V4 version looks much better than this one BUT this one supports outputting to a TV. If you don't care for that feature then the older iteration of this kit is better in every other way. Need assistance troubleshooting? I don't offer one on one tech support but you can try self-help with the wiki: https://gameboy.github.io/ If you need more help than that, I'd recommend joining one of the many discord servers linked there and posting in the various troubleshooting channels. I do not respond to emails or DMs with troubleshooting requests. I use a handy and free open source test suite for both GB and GBA -- 240p-test-mini. They are both very good for checking alignment, aspect ratio, color reproduction, and other aspects with aftermarket screen kits: https://github.com/pinobatch/240p-test-mini I also use mattcurrie's ROM pack for testing colors and scrolling on aftermarket screen kits: https://mattcurrie.com/gb-lcd-tests.zip I continually record both brightness and power usage of all the screen kits I test. Take a look at my continuously updated spreadsheet to look at the raw data: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wUsJ2jZkEBOzhegrN-tVGW7wCkuIf6Bi Confused/intimidated by the sheer number of backlight kits now? I don’t blame you. I had to create a wiki article just to keep everything straight myself.

DMG TV Out IPS Kit (RIPS TV Version / V5)

Notes from the Community

This kit appears to be an amalgamation of the V3 and V4 kits with all the features of the V4 + a TV out function but on mostly v3 hardware. Some vendors will refer to this kit as the 'DMG TV Version', 'DMG V5', or similar. This kit comes in two versions itself, one with TV out function, and one without and other than the TV out functionality, the kits look and work the same. Install is identical between the two except that you do not have to solder the composite video connection to the link port. The TV out functionality works by sending a full screen composite video signal over the link port and then a custom AV cable is connected via the headphone jack and link port to the TV. Unfortunately, composite video is very low quality but if you're willing to suffer the drawbacks of composite, it's a rather decent kit. For the first time yet, OC has added support for the correct aspect ratio and you can change between full screen and scaled via the OSD. Composite aside, the TV Out function does work pretty nicely. Unfortunately, the internal LCD itself is a rather large downgrade compared to the OSD/V4 kit. The lower resolution means no more pixel grid support, the image on screen is smaller (still stock sized, just smaller than the previous kit), and the kit no longer supports repositioning the image on the screen. This last point should be rather moot as the kit does come with a bracket for positioning things, however. If you want TV Out on your DMG, this is the kit to go with (you're spoiled for choice there though) but if you want the best looking internal LCD, this is not it.
