Is OSD feasible with VS23S04?

I'm looking to do an overlay onto an NTSC/PAL signal.

If I used an LM1881 to extract timing from the incoming NTSC signal, would I be able to sync for overlay?

Sorry, cannot. There's no way to sync VS23S040 into an incoming video signal. It needs to be the clock master and generate all the syncs itself.
