Tech-Specs > Video Modes Supported > CGA Composite (16 colors)

The original IBM Color Graphics Adapter was capable of displaying 160x200 in 16 colors using "composite color mode", which was set by enabling the "color burst" bit while in 640x200 mode. On true CGA cards with a composite video output (which includes Tandy 1000s and PCjrs), this video mode will display 160x200 graphics in 16 colors out to a regular television set or VCR. On a normal VGA card, however, it will wrongly appear as a regular 640x200 black-and-white display.
