Back in the 1990s, I remember reading that there was a NEC Multisync 
model that could handle 15 kHz hsync. Nice if NEC has kept this feature 
all these years. :)

On a related note, I upgraded my TV setup from a 14" Sony CRT with a 
Linux/VDR based "set-beside-box" to a 22" Samsung SmartTV. The TV 
supports HDMI, SCART, composite video and component video (Y/Pb/Pr), but 
the manual does not mention S-Video or Y/C. So far, I have only tested 
the C64 and Vic-20 composite video output on the TV; I did not even set 
up my C128D (plastic case) yet. I suppose that it does support analog 
RGB on the SCART for the 80-column VDC output.

I wonder if there is an easy way to connect Y/C (luma/chroma) to the TV.

Best regards,
