Many games support 60hz though and run much more smoothly. Fury of the Furries, Lotus Trilogy, Menace immediately spring to mind and there are many more.

"Most accurate" would be a 240p aware HDMI upscaler, but those things are expensive.

I haven't tried to remove it no, I have a spare CD32 I'd be curious to try, if I can find an S-Video lead I will give it a go. I never knew the SX32's caused compatibility problems.

No problem, I assume the output's just a little noisy. I might try the RGB mod at some point as there's probably less noise for the signal to pick up if you tap directly from the chip.
