Swapping motherboards from PAL to NTSC
Swapping motherboards from PAL to NTSC –
I'm not sure if this is off-topic but since many people in this forum deals with hardware I've decided to post here.
Does anyone know if it's possible to swap the a V3 PAL motherboard with a V3 NTSC/US motherboard? I have an old V3 PAL and that would be an easy way to have a working NTSC console (e.g. I could use the HDD Browser).
Providing your TV can accept NTSC you shouldnt have any problems, have swapped Pal V4 for Ntsc V4 without incident.
the problem is only in tv
and mods ( need mod supporting ntsc)
Hi! May I swap NTSC with PAL? i.e. if I buy a ps2 NTSC from US, to play in Italy with my PAL TV I have to install a modchip or what?
Thanks for your anwers, lads.
Currently I can play online NTSC games (I import 4 or 5 US games every year) with my V3 PAL but it's good to know I can swap the motherboards if necessary.
Both TV and mod support NTSC. The good thing it's there is no need of a stepdown converter.
In order to display the games correctly you need a NTSC compatible TV (in the last 10 years almost every TV sold in Europe support PAL, SECAM and NTSC) and a "full" SCART connector for colour information.
