Careful what you say, Bill. I don't know *for*sure* if my Really Early C64
is the 'original' board, but it certainly has a 5 pin video socket and the
video circuit seperate from the modulator as in the PRG diagram. The only
thing required of the _PCB_ for PAL compatibilty is some way of setting
the clock divider to 18 instead of 14.
