As the topic says, I'm really curious to understand this incompatibility. The TV tuner does create RGB output which I would presume gets sent to the VDP and converted to the same serial RGB data that's used for the LCD.
I'm interested in doing some hacking with it, I think it would be cool to use the Game Gear with its LCD upgrade as a test monitor and be able to hook up other game systems to it.

The TV tuner drives the LCD directly via the cartridge port, not using encoded video in the normal sense.
