If that TV actually is a multi-standard TV, it might not suffer
from the PAL colour-loss problem, that most regular PAL TVs have.
You should try out a program with an odd number of scanlines per
frame to see if your new TV is usefull for testing for this problem,
or if you still must rely on the emulator.
