Also, recall the comment that the internal trim pot was often adjusted so
COLU=$1x was the same as COLU=$Fx, which would ideally give you 120 colors.

I'd have to run through the formulae again and see whether any of the RGB
colors ended up being the same due to clipping, but I don't think so.  (They
just ended up with a different effective hue, IIRC.)  However, a bunch of
the darker colors would look black, depending on how the TV is adjusted.

My bet is it's a typo.
