It doesn't do the character generator at all in Robot mode.  I initially 
put it in because the Scotty modes were 256 lines and the camera scaled 
down most easily to 240 lines, so I was left with 16 lines to fill up.

It does OK, though I think it doesn't have an IR cut filter so colors 
can be off.

Once I get a frame buffer set up to handle BT.656 data, I'll have a lot 
more camera options - both NTSC/PAL decoders and modern cell phone style
