What's that interface I found for, then? One of these rare monitors?

I wish there was some cheap trick to double the HSYNC frequency and still have a correct image displayed, but I'm no electronics whiz. I even suck at soldering.

And yet, a friend of mine, some years ago, showed me his box that let him play his Megadrive (Genesis for Europe) to a PC monitor. The image was not as crips as an emulator, but still decent. I'm not sure, but I guess it converted the SCART signal to some fixed res (640x480?), not really desirable with an Amiga...
