The SMS systems that TecToy sells are just garbage emulation boxes. The *new* Mega Drive is a pretty good product, specially since it has firmware updates that fix game-specific issues.

Only videogames suffered, and nobody gave a shit because we had a much, much stronger computer scene, where 50hz did not matter (in fact it was preferred because it allowed for 17% more CPU time).

Actually, that pulldown is better, or else we get motion smearing or PAL speedup which is awful.
Pic related is ghosting from the UK DVD of Kiki's Delivery Service.
This PAL ghosting has plagued many of Studio Ghibli's DVDs in the UK and Australia, but some of them have PAL speedup instead, which is worse, in my opinion.
France also uses the speedup method.
And thankfully, they stopped with the remastered Studio Ghibli Blu-rays.

The whole motion smearing effect also affected the UK reruns of Clarissa Explains It All.
Also, what's weird is that the UK DVD of Spirited Away is sped up, but the Aussie DVD opts to smear the image instead.
Also, PAL speedup is really terrible, especially when I experienced it for the first time in my UK import DVDs of My Neighbor Totoro, Whisper of the Heart, and Howl's Moving Castle.
I did have the US DVDs and the Japanese DVDs but I also wanted to collect the UK, French and Australian DVDs. And also the Blu-rays when they came out.

There is. It makes perfect sense when used in content.
RCA [the company] named the connector "RCA" after themselves.
RCA [the connector] was named after the company "RCA".

First one is fully accurate.

This is very odd. Wouldn't that imply having more than one crystal oscillator and completely replacing the encoder? I don't know the exact specifications of PAL60, but I assume what you'll output by increasing the master clock to non-european frequencies would just be NTSC?

You would either need to run NTSC software, or hack it. For example, on the Playstation there was a piece of PC software called PALPAR that could be used to hack PAL games back into NTSC using Action Replay codes. The irony here being that shitty NTSC > PAL conversions would then work pretty much identically to their original release (save the screen position which you would also have to hack. Properly converted games would cause problems because their screen display would have more lines than NTSC could show). Either that or just import or pirate the NTSC original. I bought all the games I cared about from the USA and pirated all the rest, I had very few PAL games.

You're right, 4th gen will be black and white. Even if it is running at 60Hz using PAL.

I SPECIFICALLY told you later PS1 models output both PAL and NTSC which IMPLIES composite/s-video because they operate in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT COLOR SPACE (YUV).

This is the PAL DVD of Howl's Moving Castle, it has no issues except for the speedup.
And since I really hate that the audio and runtime gets murdered by PAL speedup, I would honestly prefer ghosting over PAL speedup.

The Amélie Blu-ray is also interlaced but it also had PAL speedup in 50hz, so it was screwed in both ways.
Thankfully, the Lionsgate US Blu-ray has no PAL speedup and is in progressive scan 23.976fps.

And the US 2003 Disney DVD of Kiki's Delivery Service, which uses the same transfer as the UK DVD has none of these because the US 2003 Disney DVD is in NTSC.
It's not even present in the original release Japanese DVD, in the Japanese remastered DVD, the US 2010 Disney DVD, and the 2017 GKIDS/Shout! Factory DVD (I got it bundled with the Blu-ray combo pack).
The NTSC DVDs were what I preferred for the Studio Ghibli films before the Blu-rays came out.
All of the Studio Ghibli Blu-rays are in 23.976fps, regardless if it's from a PAL region or NTSC region.
