PAL-Mode without scaling

I own a media-pc with via cl266 chipset (unichrome) connected to a normal TV.Screen-resolution is 720x576 16bit / scanline.I noticed around 10 scaling artefacts where are the scanlines are closer together eachother.Is it possible to disable this kind of screenscaling?btw.chipset driver dosnt support opengl and cpu-power is very low.(celeron 850 mhz, 512 MB memory, win xp, competition pro usb)

If your TV is a normal PAL TV, u don't need WinUAE PAL Filter
(provided your TV accepts composite input).

It is your display card that does the scaling. WinUAE scales nothing (as long as filters are not used and aspect ratio checkbox is not ticked)

I guess only solution is to create custom resolution that has exact same resolution as "TV-out resolution".

When you reply, you can click on the "Manage Attachments" button and upload your pic as an, er, attachment.

Alternatively you could use an image-hosting site such as ImageShack and copy the link it gives you to the pic into your reply.

are you sure, that there is no hw-scaling?
i have to ask again, because i noticed that "windowed" indicates 568 scanlines, while fullscreen shows 576 lines.

system update: celeron 850 changed against PentiumIII-S 1,4GHz and memory changed from 512MB to 1GB
smooth entertainment ....

Those could be scaling artifacts caused by the video card or interference, neither of which have anything to do with WinUAE. Try a testcard to confirm whether or not it is the graphics adapter.

@Ratte: From my experience, I'm afraid it's the TV thing.
I get those lines most of the times on one TV (Spectra 21") and some of the times (mostly in NTSC mode) on other TV (Lexus 21", IIRC a Philips license/scheme build in Poland) with anything (alright, tried this only with a PlayStation and an Amiga, but this can't be the input-device doing) in AV mode.

Want to get rid of it, at least partially?
Take of your TV's back cover, take a good look at the "motherboard", find the square "screws" (technical term is... ? ), get a thin screwdriver and... tune like you've never tuned before!

It is fixable in some way, you've got to tune those three values: the contrast, the brightness and screen height.
From my experience, try to lower those three a bit.

Remember that the TV's "mobo" has some "screws" (and again, what's the tech term? ) in multiple places, sometimes assigned to do the same thing as the other, so be sure to check them all.

Pardon my lack of techno-english on this one, maybe someone actually did understand my mambo-jambo and had solved similar problems, so he/she could describe it better...
