It is different, NTSC modulators output VHF signals (channel 2-4), while PAL-G/I modulators ouput UHF (channel 36, on older models adjustable). But I already converted a C64 to NTSC and the monitor output works just perfect with the PAL modulator. > Obtaining a 17.734472 MHz crystal in America might be a problem, so you It even seems to be a problem in Germany. I wanted to have a few spare ones but never found them. But when you just gave up to find them they appear in the next catalogue you look at ;-) Kessler electronic in Germany has them, I posted the complete address a few days ago in c.s.c/c.e.c because of the Userport plugs and cases. > By the way, it's not completely necessary to swap the crystal or to touch > the jumper that selects the clock divisor.

A few people also told me that they did not do the complete conversion, because of trouble with floppy speeders or speeder cartridges. I did the full conversion, and now that a new Action Replay patch with both PAL/NTSC support is being made (ar.c64.org) I can also use the AR6 on a real NTSC machine. The current beta works fine and already has the most annoying AR6 bugs fixed. Nicolas - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
