ITU BT.601 to VGA

Hello all,  

 

I am trying to use the DE2 board to convert the output from the ADV7181 chip to RGB format so I can display it on an VGA compatible LCD monitor. I know nothing about video standards and despite hours of research I can't seem to figure out what I need to do. I've got the reference design that does exactly what I want to do, but I don't understand Verilog at all. Is it correct that this is the process: Upscale the YUV 4:2:2 to YUV 4:4:4 then convert the color scheme from YCbCr to RGB. After that, it's ready to be displayed with a VGA controller? Also, does anyone know of any reference designs for doing this in VHDL? 

 

Thank you. 

 

V/R,

Also you have to generate HSYNC, and VSYNC according to the desired resolution
