Last night I got my hands on a hardly used 20 inch Phillips TV. It's pretty much a smaller version of the dud TV I got earlier including component inputs. I hooked my PAL N64 and GC up via composite, It looks amazing.
It can't do 480P and probably can't do 576P either but it does standard def really well.
For some reason I can't get scanlines. Up close the picture looks as if it's behind a screen door or like it's made up of dots. This is fine since this is how my systems have always looked on a CRT but I'm curious as to how to get scan lines.

Another oddity is that Mario 64 comes up letter boxed for some reason.

Edit: I've learn't about vertical TV lines and how a low TV line count makes scanlines harder to see and that Mario 64's letterbox appearance is due to how it was ported to PAL systems.
