Not quite... You can get a clear picture from a 6569R1, 6569R3 or 6569R4 
(that one is rather rare) as well. The problem on the older boards is 
mostly the modulator. Replace it with a simple video amp and you will 
have a very good picture. Ok, you lose the RF output, but who is using 
that anymore?

Even the old KU board already has the 8pin Video out.
