2600 - best video out option?

I have just got a 6 switch woody 2600 and composite modded it using the following:-

On LCD tellies the result varies from poor to awful with large bands going up the screen (fairly slowly - maybe 2 to 3 seconds from bottom to top). In between these bands I can sometimes see a crystal clear piece of screen.


On an old glass screen telly the results are significantly better.

I don’t know if I am expecting too much - I am used to ZX81s going from being awful to pixel perfect on the same LCD tellies with similar mods.

What are the output mod options for these? Aside from the one I have used I can see this fairly sophisticated one:-


Any suggestions welcome!
