    Ok
    I have been searching lots of forums for a solution to change my NTSC card to accept PAL signal and it looks like it can't be done by flashing the bios. It looks like the problem is that the tuner on the card is only for ntsc.
    My question is, does the tuner part of the card have its own bios and has anyone tried to extract it and change it? The chipset on the video card for the tuner needs to have some sort of bios to work doesn't it? If it isn't part of the main bios then maybe it has its own.
    I tried contacting ATI and asked them specifically if the hardware is different for a pal card or a ntsc card but they wouldn't tell me.
