Please submit a schematic.
Ciao, Carlo
I would like to make a few more hardware-tests and make a flexible solution (with standard components and a little trim-pot), before I upload the schematic.
In generel, the only thing that has to be done is to adjust the video-signal, with the same circuit as shown on wikipedia (the bias voltage goes to the "+" just above the capacitor);
A finish circuit can be seen here (not mine);

This guy is only using a resistor. I wouldn't thrust the sync detection, but you might be lucky. And when using SPI, i recommend also to use a diode from the SPI-pin

But I find that a standard diode provide too low voltage for the bias-circuit, to raise the video-signal above ground.

I'm currently using a zener-diode to create the voltage reference and bias voltage - but I would prefer to use standard components all the way. That would make things easier available for everyone
2 Diodes en series could be a solution - but that's a boring solution (though it works fine)
