Not sure I fully understand the problem.
I use mostly US region NTSC games as that's where my unmodded xbox is from (and currently still is), only reason I use a modded xbox in Scotland is because of this issue.
Anyway, I set my xbox to US region and PAL video output in my modchips startup menu (smartXX 3339) and all my US NTSC games play fine. I'm pretty certain that my TV does NOT support NTSC (it's so old it has DIN connectors), especially as it's going (RGB SCART from xbox) through my VCR and to the TV through coax cable.
What are you doing to control your xbox video out signal and region?

As far as I know, a patch would involve rewriting a lot of the game rather than just one file- maybe this is why many games out there now actually have PAL and NTSC data on the same disc?

I definately think you should be thinking more about setting up your xbox correctly for your hardware rather than hacking the code on the discs.
