I don't have my real hardware set up, but it runs fine on Stella for
Windows and PCAE for DOS, and peeking in with the debugger in the latter,
it appears you have the proper number of lines being done everywhere.

Beg/borrow/steal a Supercharger or Cuttle Cart; seeing the real console
display your work is a big part of the fun of programming the 2600.

It's also quite pretty and could make a neat title screen for a game just
as it is :)
