I'm sending a modded US Xbox to India where they use PAL. Is there an easy way to switch it to PAL once it arrives... assuming there won't be a NTSC TV handy? I don't have a PAL set in the US either.

you can use enighma(sp??) VGA to convert NTSC to PAL. or use config Magic to change the region of the xbox. The onlything you need to worry is power adaptor/convertor since India's power putlet will sure fry 120 V US system. wink.gif

Thanks. OK, I've installed Enigmah but can you tell me if my NTSC games will work? Is it only the video portions that's the problem... or the whole game?

I regularly forget to run my NTSC games in NTSC mode. They run fine in PAL just a bit slower and lap times change or are not obtainable. I noticed when playing Project Gotham NTSC in PAL mode, that medal pursuits were impossible cause the frame rate is lower but the x-box clock is still accurate. I was off the mark but 4-5 seconds every time. Switch back to NTSC and the times are 4-5 seconds faster.
