After bringing my European (Irish) XBox 360 to the US, I've found that my TV doesn't support PAL (except in black and white with PAL-60). Is there a way to make my XBox 360 output NTSC (such as by modding it, for example)? Alternatively, do converters exist to make this work?

  • I know it says Xbox, but just to be sure: The Xbox 1, not the 360? Jan 2, 2011 at 4:39
  • What sort of connection are you using between the Xbox and your television?

Yes, it is possible to use a converter to change the signal from PAL to NTSC. a cheap simple converter such as this will do the job if all you have are composite outputs. converters do exist for higher definition output (component, HDMI etc) but expect to pay more.
