Someone correct me if I don't remember correctly...

I believe it's 520x240 or maybe less.

No!

640x480 is not standard television resultion, it is VGA which is significantly better!

Standard NTSC output is 460x360 INTERLACED.

Check out this comparision which google turned up.

It's interesting that the broadcast is interlaced, this means that the actual signals are approx 460x180 or less (especially given that VHS is less and the Xbox conforms to VHS output, e.g. lowest common denominator).

This also goes to show why the DC's VGA adaptor did such a fantastic job at increasing it's output quality, since the DC was pushed into rendering at the 640x480 resolution.
