RE: 264 Series and their chips

I had a guy call who had designed a "Disco display" around the 264,
bacially crt displays around a nightclub and then was mortified when he
saw the border.  He called in and was able to get me on the phone  and I
gave him the only news I knew of which was that I didn’t know of any way
at all to change this.  My only suggestion was to flip rapidly between the
two modes that caused the border to change slightly in size and so the
border would appear "soft".  He was very sad when finished.  (Who designs
a night club around a computer and then finds out it has a border?)

Looking back I would have tried to rig the displays to overscan like hell.

Do you have a link giving some background on how that is done? I have seen
full screen images on the C16, but so far was unable to find documentation
that explains how to do this. Since TED doesn't have sprites you can't do
things as you'd do with a VIC when you want to put graphics in the border
