[PSVTV] A New Update Of The Sharpscale V1.4.0 Plugin Has Been Released

The cuevavirus developer of Team CBPS has released a new 1.4.0 plugin update that solves the puzzle (a bounty organized by Rinnegatamante) of the native resolution on PSVITA TV called Sharpscale. Sharpscale offers the following two features:

  • 720p: Generates the size of the native 960 × 544 framebuffer with black borders
  • 1080i: scale the framebuffer to 1920 × 1088 and cut the bottom 8 lines
  • Full scaling is therefore possible up to 1440p and 4k.

This is the only method for capturing native resolution video with precise colors at 60 fps. A hardware acquisition kit for Vita was previously available from Japan for $ 450 USD, but due to changes in Japanese laws, this is no longer available. The resizing test program shows 1 pixel wide horizontal and vertical lines alternating between white and black. If you observe patterns, scaling was performed incorrectly, as in all output modes without this plugin.


  • For installation, Autoplugin 2 is sufficient or manually as explained below:
  • Download the file at the end of the article and insert it in the ur0: tai folder
  • Add the following string in ur0’s config.txt file: tai as in the example below

ur0: tai / sharpscale.skprx




  • Allows HD framebuffer formats on Vita
  • Added HD resolution to trial scaling
  • crash fixed in config app
  • Bilinear filter returns to the system default whenever resizing is not applied


  • Added an option to enable large framebuffer formats when the application uses large framebuffers
