obviously pal 60hz since it has extra lines of resolutionOriginally posted by 007@May 5, 2003 @ 10:06 PM
Which has better picture, PAL 60Hz or NTSC 60 Hz? Note: PAL 60 Hz, 50Hz doesn't count and NTSC is only at 60 Hz so the question is PAL at 60Hz vs. NTSC
Not true. VGA uses true 640x480 resolution at a full frame 60fps. While pal and ntsc get the internal 640x480 image streched out to the 720x480 and 720x576 (or something like that I forget the actual numbers). Also pal and ntsc only really show a half height image (ie 240 or 288) each of the 60 frames due to interlacing. (To get a full 480 or 576 high image you need to use two consecutive fields on a tv which drops the fps to 30).Originally posted by 007@May 7, 2003 @ 05:55 PM
hey but still, even through VGA it uses the pal ot NTSC resolution so the picture should be different
Well, composite as well as S-video use the brightness/color encoding that define the PAL and NTSC standards. RGB, as well as VGA and component (DVD) hookups bypass the encoding entirely and just deliver the signals as they are, so you can't even call those kind of hookups "PAL" or "NTSC" anymore. Some people still do, but they refer to the refresh rate: 50Hz or 60Hz.Originally posted by Alexvrb@May 8, 2003 @ 02:33 PM
What if you're running an NTSC game on an NTSC TV, but aren't connecting through composite? Meaning 3-wire RCA, S-video, or component? Medion mentioned using TV-out on his PC, but through what?
lol on what planet are you living? Almost all TVs with a SCART input have RGB support; true, I have yet to see a TV outside of Japan that has RGB+audio on separate plugs, as well as a graphics card that can output RGB via it's tv-out...Originally posted by M3d10n@May 9, 2003 @ 06:00 PM
I was using composite. My TV lacks S-video, and I've only seen one TV in my whole life that had RGB support.
SCART is a nominally European connector standard for television sets. It carries RGB, composite video, S-Video, and left/right audio all on a single connector standard. I'd imagine that this is absurdly convenient on several levels compared to the connector soup that US consumers have to put up with.Some body explain what RGB and SCART are? Here in the States all we have is RF, A/V, and S-Video, the new one s high defention port but i haven't seen them yet.
