Avid Mojo - Switch for NTSC or PAL?

I just purchased a used Avid Mojo. I don't know the model number, but it's not the SDI one, but the one that was from 3-4 years back or so. I am trying to use it with Avid Express Pro 5.1.3, but when I play back something on the Avid timeline, all I see in the monitor is very warbled, black and white fuzz. If I look very closely, I can see a little bit of the picture, but it's pretty well completely messed up looking on the monitor. I did all the obvious troubleshooting things such as restarting the computer, re-installing Mojo drivers, re-installing Avid, etc.

I just asked the person from whom I bought this from and she said it sounds like the Mojo is switched on to PAL and that there is an easy way to switch it to NTSC from within Avid. Does anyone know anything about such a switch? I couldn't find it. Also, any other suggestions on how to get this to work?

The Mojo's frame rate is driven by the Avid software depending on your project type. I switch between PAL and NTSC quite a lot and it is seamless.
