Flatscreen TV issues.
Just popping in

Hello all, I've recently purchased a flatscreen TV with VGA input, hoping to use this instead of the scandoubler I've been using (see here and here to see why). Unfortunately, this thing is MILITANTLY ntsc, and 90% of my non-RTG games are in PAL. I was running some some searches, and found
this on Amazon, and was wondering if anybody has used such a thing? I'm not too concerned about video quality, as I usually only play 320x200 or 320x256 res on AGA, but the info states its good for Playstation II, which I believe is 800x600. Even a pal hi-res-laced screen is less than that.
Also, my TV has S-video and composite inputs as well as the antenna input, but I'm sure the s-video would require 60hz verticle as well. (The antenna input can deal with 50hz input, but chops the bottom 56 pixels off the screen, rather inconvenient when trying to find the flippers in Pinball Fantasies).
Also, I know theres a few different PAL standards, I'm not too sure which one the Amiga uses? Thanks for any help.

I just bought one from Nathan Cadwallen (amigamaniac)in Australia. If you have a look at his website, http://www.amigamaniac.com you'll find some info about it.

I haven't tried mine yet as I'm rebuilding my A1200 (v e r y s l o w l y) and I aim to use it for that, although, as I am UK based, it's different conditions for me (PAL)

The bad news is you'll need a scan doubler but the good news is that the cheap ones with SVideo inputs will work with AmigaManiac's RGB to SVideo adapter.
