I have a MagicV modded v7 ntsc PS2. It plays backup dvd-r and cdr fine. today I tried to play 2 different backed up UK/pal game and it's only in black/white. I know this is a pal/ntsc issue. However I was under the impression that mod chip means it'll play both pal and ntsc games. Pls clarify. btw, it was by a prof modder. but I'm now suspecting whether it was really magicV chip. display says SCPH-39001 and PS driver 1.10. how can I tell what chip is inside?  I should have titled this differently. my PS2 does play pal game but doesn't display (output) in ntsc signal. My tv is only in ntsc so I'm thinking now maybe this problem is because here in N.america we can't buy tv's that 's PAL-switchable. am I right?
