And at that point, why use an Amiga wedge at all, when you can just use the Vampire on its own?

I think this is excellent advice that I have given before to people.

Threads where people try to get back to Amiga now currently and quickly devolve into "get a Vampire!" pitches, without realizing the Vampire is just not for everyone right now and, in most cases, people do NOT need one and will be disappointed when they receive it because it doesn't do the wonders they have been told it would by misled forumites giving ill advice.

This kinda advice also hurts the Vampire by enlarging the "disgruntled population". It'd be best kept in check instead of giving it care free.,

You can use an HDMI downscaler as suggested earlier in this thread, there's also scanline generator hardware. Not the same, but hey.
