I've got one somewhere. I've also got a successor - a little TFT monitor
intended as a reversing camera monitor for cars. Runs from 12V, takes
PAL or NTSC composite in, good enough to read 40 columns (at least) and
maybe 80 too.

One of these days I should feed it Mode 0 from the Master 128 and see
what happens...
