Weird colors & bars in Famiclone/NES on portable DVD Player

Post by krzysiobal »

When I connect a portable DVD Player (with composide video input) to TV output, the video from TV is very clear on this dvd player. Hovewer, when I connect Famiclone/NES to this DVD Player, some colors are inverted and there is a lot of bars & noise.
This is how the picture is displayed on TV and should look:

This is how it looks on DVD Player:

It is bad both in NTSC & PAL Mode (I have PAL & NTSC Famiclones)
The yellow/orange and blue colours are ok but green is exchanged with purple.

What is going on? Is the video generated by Nes/Famiclone so unstable so the DVD Player cannot synchronize with it? Or maybe it doesn't meet PAL/NTSC standards?

On another famiclone the situation is even worse:

While on TV it perfect:

My only guess: the "PAL" video generated by the 2C07 / UA6538 differs too much from what's expected.

I'm more surprised by that the "NTSC" video generated by the 2C02 / UA6528 seems to be also too different.
