OXO use to have a device that connected to the Falcon monitor port
that allowed for S-VHS output. I tried like hell to obtain one, but
they never responded to any mails. There are devices that can do this
(at 31.5Hz), but they cost a lot more than for what OXO offered.

Apex doesn't use GEM, so it cannot be displayed on the NOVA card:(. IF
Apex Alpha ever makes it????? Maybe some kind sole will release the
beta if the final version is never going to be released. It does
supposedly work on the NOVA.

The problem will still be that your trying to utilize the RF output,
which is not the same as NTSC composite. The audio and video signals
are mixed there, and as a by product, you get the crappy video output
that you see.
