I think answer to 1 is Yes.
On 2., there probably won't be any different between a comparable TV +
S-Video, or a monitor, since the TV will have larger pixels, and a
monitor would scale a pixel to more than 1. Though i don't exactly
understand what happens if, say, horizontal resolution is not a multiple
of 720. I guess some pixels get rendered more than once and some don't.
On 3., i made a typo, 1280x768 is not 16:9, i meant to say 1280x720. I'm
pretty sure the answer is yes, although not all of external VGA or LCD
resolutions might be supported. So i guess the answer is 75% chance yes,
25% No, or something like that.
