Just for completeness - a delay line is not *only* for PAL, where it could theoretically be omitted, leading to Hannover bars effect ;-) it is also required for SECAM, where it acts as temporary storage between two consecutive lines. True there were no SECAM outputting CBM machines :-) > In theory composite is produced by summing the Y and C of S-VIDEO. In practice you may get time shift whenever they are combined or separated. Which is why studio equipment (TBCs and Co.) has adjustments for keeping them in sync. -- SD! - http://e4aws.silverdr.com/ Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-09-01 10:03:30
