It depends on the converter chip used in the device.  I have a Redant 
converter box (not in active use; just as a spare, or to get colour 
output from my NTSC VIC-20 board) whose most important chips have been 
tampered with, so that their labels cannot be read.  The Redant box has 
no problems with sync, but it does have problems with the NTSC colour 
phase.  The hue control is rather coarse, and the optimal setting 
differs from colour combination to another.

BTW, I think that the C65 uses the C64 BN/E power supply.
