PAL Amiga on a 1084S-D2 NTSC

Hello,

Quick question. I am looking at a 1084S-D2 NTSC but have a PAL A1200. Wondering is that's going to work. What will happen when the 1200 outputs a PAL image to the monitor? Will the bottom be cut off or won't it work at all because it's only a 50hz picture?

Thanks!

From this video [ Show youtube player ] he says that a 1084S monitor autosyncs between PAL and NTSC. He has a NTSC A600 and I presume it's a NTSC 1084S too, because he sounds American. He says in the video that if you do a reboot with PAL it will fill the whole screen and not cut the bottom half.

The 1084S-D2 version does not auto sync like the one above. You have to adjust the vertical knob on the back.

All Commodore monitors I have had have supported both 50/60hz. None have supported both PAL and NTSC colour encodings.

It'll work fine over the RGB port. The issues come into play only if you're using the composite port.
