## Video output

R1 and V4 both output 640×480 progressive with 60 Hz on DVI (-A and -D) and HDMI, respectively.
R1 furthermore supports raw video output as provided by the original arcade hardware. A composite synchronization signal is provided as HSYNC while VSYNC is constantly driven high. Feed this into a suitable monitor via an adapter chain:

1. DVI-A -> VGA
2. VGA -> RGB, CSYNC (compatible with MIST scart cable, https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-board/wiki/ScartCable)

See `sdcard/tracknfield_15khz.ini` for further information.
