I doubt a PIC, or even a fast SX could handle this. A lot depends on
the order in which the GB scans the display, and the refresh rate.
Unless these happen to be very close to the required TV spec, this
will involve a dual-port display RAM buffer.
It would probably be much easier to use a cheap CMOS monochrome camera
pointed at the display (yes, seriously!).
