Thanks for letting me know that!  It's very difficult to set the colors 
properly, since the NTSC convention of high four bytes for hue and low four 
bytes for luminance doesn't seem to apply to PAL.  At least, it didn't appear 
to when I was trying to find decent colors under Stella.  I'll play with the 
red (I'm assuming both the suit and the score) settings a bit.

How's the stability?  Does the screen shudder at all?  I'd like to know if I 
have the right number of scan lines.
