1920*1080 = 2073600 /8 = 259200 bytes = 253Kb
Total memory on RP2040 is 264kB


expanding on this - you would have just enough RAM for a 1080p image in a single colour (ie, each pixel can be black or white, no shades of grey, nothing else), with only 10k or so left over.

plus, 1080p is not possible on the Pico, the limit is 720p (1280  x 720 pixels).

to be in any way useful, you would need to have a second Pico to run MMbasic on.
