If you have a suitable VGA card that can actually output 15kHz interlaced, it
is quite easy to build a very simple circuit so you can connect VGA -> RGB
SCART input. No convertors, no scanning, no nonsense - your VGA card will be
driving the guns in your TV set directly.
I know you said you have only composite input, but RGB will provide by far the
best image... rather than mess about with composite, I'd save your money for
a few months and buy a new telly :)
I *love* the 'simple advice' at the end of that URL "Apparently, some hardware
doesn't support interlaced mode. If you have sync problems, check the sync
signal with an oscilloscope. " Hang on I'll just fish my scope out....
