Regardless of the region of the console, without modding, RGBS output is limited to 480i/576i/PAL60, and the only way to get 480p or better is through YPbPr, component cables, and an NTSC video region.

If you want to use RGB instead, there should be a BIOS mod that will force RGsB output, regardless of resolution, but I expect you still need an NTSC video region, and you need a board revision that isn’t 1.6, and you need something, like an OSSC, that can understand RGsB, and you’ll probably need to use component cables.

There should also be a modification you can do to get RGBHV output, but I believe that routes separate sync onto data pins on the AV output that weren’t meant for separate sync, so you’ll need a matching custom cable to go with it, which is not an approach I’m a fan of. Personally, I’d either go YPbPr (Which I do now) or hold out for an HDMI mod.
