[Coco] nitros-09 on a TV

You are hitting the exact same problem I had for about a year. I gave up on
trying to read the screen since I did not know OS9 well enough to blindly
type in the commands to get out of that mode.
After a year or so of bidding and losing on RGB monitors on eBay, I finally
got my hands on a CM8. Works well now, and I've figured out how to go to 40
column mode, which is much easier to read.
Beware of "just RGB" monitors, though. I had a Commodore monitor which was
RGB, but was just as hard to read as the television.
I guess on the one hand "shipping" OS9 should cater to the power user with a
nice monitor, but on the other hand, the lowest common denominator for
screen resolution may need to be considered.
Either way, I'm able to see what I'm doing now.

Subject: [Coco] nitros-09 on a TV
After a bit of fussing and a lot of effort by Mark of Cloud9
(if I haven't said so before thanks for your help Mark) I've
got my superide working with nitros-09 installed. The complication
had to do with my lack of a floppy drive. :-)
With one problem solved I ran into another. When I hook my coco up
to my tv and start nitros-09 I find that the text on the screen is
unreadable. I don't have any problems reading the text when booting
into basic. I did win an action a week ago that includes an rgb monitor.
Should I wait for the monitor or is there something that I can do now??
