I am just trying to figure out the real difference between a 240p and 480i signal from a game console, and what would be the advantages or disadvantages between both.
So, in a 240p signal (coming from NES, SNES, and many Wii Virtual Console games) would that mean ALL 240 lines of resolution are being shown at once and the scanlines from a television just go between every other line to fill up the whole screen? No drawing one set of lines after the other?
Is 480i from a game console showing all the odd lines from the console first then the even ones? What would be the advantage of a 480i signal? Wouldn't there be more flicker because it's showing one set of lines after the other rather than the whole image at once? I would think that 240p would provide more of a stable image if it's what I am thinking it is.
Thanks for your guys' time!
