Hello guys in NBTV!! :D
I've had some news for you all!! I have thought of a clue of how to make it get up to 405/625 lines. I have looped the same audio of the colour bars signal, doubling up from 1 to 3 minutes. VERY SLOW SCAN INDEED! But I still can't playback the signal yet, if there is no programme for any line resolutions, then it could probably work on some homemade SSTVs. I will think of planning to do a mechanical project, but it has to be crude for my construction. But anyways, that's all I had to say! This is me Dylan signing out and goodbye!!!! :D :) :wink:

405 and 625 were the horizontal lines of the picture ( including the lines used for the synch pulses, and not visible ).

With a 625 line system, only 576 lines are used for the picture itself.

As for Betamax, it is 576 lines too.
The 250 refers to the "dots" per line = the vertical resolution.

It's usually best to use connectors, especially line-in.
