And you may know this, but there are NTSC Jr. models that the Kool Aid Man score code doesn't work on.  I would estimate that one in three 2600 Jr's have that problem, but that's based on a VERY small sample.  I could be way off.

Ugh, not good since it would lead to false PAL detections on those Jr's. Would have to include an over-ride switch (or may even be a serious enough problem to abandon this technique altogether...)

I have a couple Jrs around somewhere, I'll dig 'them out and see if any exhibit the PAL-like behaviour. Maybe there's a "compromise"...
