The signal for PAL should be (in relative voltages): Sync: -0.307V Blanking Level: 0V Black Level: 0V White Level: 0.714V The signal for NTSC should be (in relative voltages): Sync: -0.276V Blanking Level: 0V Black Level: 0.054V White Level: 0.714V The Luma DAC with R12=330ohms will give the range: (again relative) Possible Sync Range: 0 to 0.52V Black Level: 0.52V White Level: 0.99V The Luma DAC with R12=680ohms will give the range: (relative) Possible Sync Range: 0 to 0.27V Black Level: 0.27V White Level: 0.79V As you can see the swing beween the black level and the white level is only about 0.44V-0.52V compared to the nominal 0.714V. (only simulated for a resistive load of 75ohms.) Where the sync will be depends on what the ASIC drives out on the Luma pins during CSync Low. This would be fairly easy to check by making the screen all grey and scoping with a decent scope on the video out. ~5-10Mhz bandwidth.
