I saw the document this morning already, it was advertised on
already. I also think the results are very impressive.

I wonder if it has something to do with the different output levels of the
two video pins on different versions of the VIC-20. I think I found the old
VIC-20 version to have dark white when I use the normal video cable from a 64
that takes video from pin 4. I ended up to adjust the video level with those
internals pots to show a bright white, maybe bright grey, so I have good
contrast in the picture. I'd really like to know what it really should look
like ...
