Re: RGBI to VGA adapters?

This looks to me like an RGBI to split-composite converter rather than VGA.  It is a cool analog domain hack, but VGA would definitely be superior for 80 column output, especially with the increasing lack of s-video connectors (and even VGA connectors) on modern displays.  There are various adapters on the market, but everything I have read indicates that they have poor color reproduction and visible artifacts from cheap clocks.  For the ~$100-150 price they seem very weak and I'd like to think that the RGBI signal could be sampled and regenerated as DVI for the price.

I was hoping the chameleon would handle this, but alas it will not.
