FX1P to FX1E. Possible?

I know there are various threads discussing this, but I couldn't find anything conclusive.

If I wanted to switch an FX1P from NTSC to PAL, can I do it? I understand that it is theoretically possible. But practically speaking, is the firmware available to let me do this?

Thanks for any insight.

The service manual lists the NVRAM data for both NTSC & PAL, it also requires a service remote and a stack of test equipment, so in theory I would say yes with the caviat that I know of none that have tried and succeeded. My only concern is whether the clock/oscillator speed is changeable

Your first port of call would be to get the service manual and ask a video engineer his/her opinion.
