A1200 PAL/NTSC Hardware switch

Hi There.
I have a PAL A1200 which I want to run in NTSC mode by default. I know I can change the display mode between PAL/NTSC in the early-boot menu every time i switch the machine on, but is there a switch/jumper on the motherboard so I can permenently fix the A1200 into NTSC mode?

If you are booting into workbench, do this:

-copy "NTSC" from sys:storage/monitors to sys:devs/monitors
-a reboot might be required here, I'm not sure
-go to sys:/prefs and using "ScreenMode", set your screenmode to NTSC High-Res

(sys is the drive you're booting from)

But if you're running games from floppy, I can't be of help.

i recently asked for this and it's not such an easy mod, as to wire a switch somewhere and that's it. Here's the the thread where we discussed this:
