It is worth noting that I think about half of that circuit is timers
and the like to try and convert a 60Hz signal into a 50Hz signal, the
Dragons have a similar bunch of counters to do the same. So if you where
using it with a 60Hz capable RGB monitor, the it could probably be ommitted.
Also I guess some of the logic could be combined into a PLD/CPLD.
