Ordering a pre-modded NTSC 2600 was going to be an option for me, depending
on cost, but at the added cost of an international phone call I think I'll
give that one a miss. 8-/

Sounds like a lot of hard work... 8-/

Again, sounds like a lot of hard work. I was kinda hoping that someone had
already done a suitable mod for PAL 2600s and that the ionfo might be
available somewhere, but if I have to try to figure out pin-out conversions
then I might have to stick with the RF out. Given that the pin-outs on the
PAl 2600 are supposedly different it looks as if I will have to import an
NTSC 2600 and try one of the NTSC mods - depending on cost. I'm guessing
that this is not going to be a cheap option. 8-(
