According to the thread WebPal Thoughts, it is possible for the WebPal to output PAL video. I also saw that someone pointed out this website http://buy-webtv.com/tvtopbox-intl.htm which says "The WebPal can now be configured to work in any foreign country and in almost any language." This leads me to believe that none of these were manufactured to output PAL video by default.
From what I read in the thread mentioned above, the video frequency is hard-coded on the board and will need to be wired for 50Hz for PAL and 60Hz for NTSC. Does this also apply to the NTSC/PAL setting on pin 30 of the 7001? I just picked up a WebPal from eBay and although all of the documentation talks about it being used with Earthlink here in the US, it is outputting a PAL signal on the video port. I took the thing apart, and I don't see any jumpers for NTSC/PAL which leads me to believe it is either software controlled or hardwired on the board for PAL output.
I can connect it to a monitor, but I wanted to be able to hook it up to my TV. Since I have NTSC equipment, it won't do me much good to have a PAL output. I wanted to check here before I start hacking it to see if there is an easy way to get this outputting NTSC or if I have a rarity that someone would like to see before I "break" it. :)
Thanks for any assistance.
