On the topic of SECAM, is it true that a C64 equipped with PAL to SECAM interface outputs a worse RGB picture than what S-Video would do on a PAL monitor? Perhaps if the TED chip had built-in RGB output, it would have been more popular in France etc, but then again on a cheap low-end European market, not too many users in 1983/84 would have a TV with RGB SCART input anyway.. at least not outside France. However it is true that e.g. Acorn Electron has a TTL RGB output just like its big brother, the BBC Micro. For some reason, I consider the Commodore 16 and Acorn Electron classmates in terms of release date, capacities and relation to more expensive machines (Commodore 64 and BBC Micro, although of course the Plus/4 is more directly a big brother to the C16).
