  • What resolution is svideo?

    I'm not sure if it's a set resolution or if it's adjustable like VGA output. If it's adjustable like VGA, what would be the best resolution for svideo to a 5.6" TFT? Either way, I'm trying to setup the software part of my carputer and just need to know what resolution to design everything for.
    Thanks

    it doesn't matter what resolution your desktop is. Svideo outputs to TV resolution which is 320x240 interlaced IIRC. higher desktop resolution = smaller and fuzzier text

      SVideo is just a signal specification, the video is sent over 2 lines, Y and C. Composite or VBS is single wire.

      NTSC will specify the resolution, 525 lines horizontal x 720 vertical. (Or if you are PAL its 625 horizontal lines).

      Read this for more info.

        I use 800x600 on my 5.6. It's okay if you don't try and read small text.

        Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.
