I have just purchased an NTSC N64 off ebay. I have an old TV but can watch NTSC dvds on it fine so i thought that an NTSC N64 would be fine. Have i got a dud machine or have i overlooked something?

It is connected through a lead that goes into 3 plugs, video, audio L, and audio R and these connect into a scart adapter i think its called.

Might be that the tv isnt NTSC then, know very little about it not even sure that it has got an rf socket

just sounds like the TV wont accept the NTSC signal. Problem is an N64 isn't RGB capable without an internal mod so there isn't anyway round it on your TV by the sounds of it :(
I would assume the DVD player is connected by RGB scart anyway

What about a PAL>NTSC signal convertor? Maybe you can buy a 'general' one that accepts a composite signal and converts it from PAL>NTSC or vice versa?

Send me a PM with the serial number and I will tell you if it can be RGB modded, only the later ones can not.

It is an extremely simple mod, finding a gamebit to open the unit is probably the hardest part.

Its quite a simple mod if remember correctly, do a search on Google and you will find it easily
