It looks like Amazon has ran out of your cable. Can you give us a heads up when the next batch will be released? It will be nice to get rid of my daisy chain setup for the occasional Dreamcast gaming session.

Same here. I'm hoping to remove my VGA to hdmi adapter to clean things up a little. I would love one of these cables. I'm very happy with how VGA looks! But now I want to simplify my set up.

Hey everyone, just wanted let you know the new Dreamcast HD Link cables are back in stock!

And for anyone who's international, check to see if you can purchase from the Amazon US website and choose international shipping.

For AUS customers, we don't officially support it but shipito.com provides freight forwarding services for your Amazon orders. It's a bummer that AUS is banned from purchasing from the Amazon US marketplace, hopefully this gives you a viable option.

Are you guys mostly specializing in video cables only or do you plan to possibly make others? For example dreamcast system link cables :) those were super rare and would be cool if you guys considered making them :)

We’re going to focus on getting out hdmi solutions for all the major retro consoles and then maybe consider further peripherals from there. We hadn’t considered link cables for the Dreamcast but we can give that some preliminary consideration if there’s demand for it.

Can anyone comment on if there’s a lot of pent up demand for this? What games support it?

personally, if you guys are in the cable making business and need ideas, you should really look into making "line voltage inducer" phone cables with a fancy launch dc box aesthetic. its a phone cable with a resistor\capacitor\9v battery clip

we really need a solution to the entry barrier for dreamcast online play, and right now that is phone line voltage induction. if we had $15 BIG ASS 25ft voltage modded phone cables available, we could fucktuple the online population

as for HDMI, yes, yes, and yes

It was a rare and obscure item so sadly only a small set of games support it:

+ Aero Dancing F
+ Aero Dancing i
+ F355 Challenge
+ Sega Tetris
+ Virtual On Oratorio Tangram

They are almost non existent on ebay. When they do go up for sale on ebay they cost outrageous amounts of money.

As far as interest goes I started a thread awhile back for it:

https://dreamcast-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10717

A we had one user who was making them but no longer does, and another who might consider it in the future.

If you guys considered this I would personally spread the news around on various boards to gain more attention for you:)

Someone could include how to get online with the dreamcast and websites to go to for help/info in these products to get the word out as well.
