Hello,

I am looking for a C64 DTV (direct to tv) unit. I would prefer the european / PAL model for better compatibility when modded. Located in USA.

Thanks in advance!

I have an NTSC unit so no help here. But, I'm (idly) curious what mods one would be doing to this and what makes the PAL model more suitable?

Basically, they can be turned into full-fledged C64 clones, with internal headers for a keyboard, controllers and an IEC port for a floppy drive or whatnot.. The PAL model is a bit more compatible, and has the internal connections for two full-function controllers, keyboard, IEC port, cassette port, and userport. It also has flash memory which can be programmed to internally hold different games other than the original built-in ones.

The NTSC model only has connections for a keyboard, IEC port and a single controller port (and the controller port is missing the connection for the UP function!) It also has no flash memory, just a read-only ROM. But it is still fun to modify if you have a floppy drive and some old games.
