The only differences in the SX-64 roms are * lack of tape routines * default to device 8 * different startup colours Roms autodetect PAL and NTSC and adjusts the timing accordingly.

M> and what will that do to the CRT (5" TV NTSC) It'll show a rolling black and white picture, but you should be able to adjust the vertical hold to get a stable image. To get colour you will need to replace the video board with one from a PAL unit. Not that I have tried any of the above, but it should be fairly straightforward. -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + .
