    My graphics card has an S-Video output that can be sent to a TV using a
    scart adaptor.

    Problem is, for some reason the output signal is in the ntsc format, and
    living outside america, my TV uses the more common PAL D format.

    Anyone know of a circuit that can convert NTSC into 625 line PAL?
    I would I also need an audio delay line so that sound can remain in sync
    with the video signal.

    If nobody knows how to do this, its ok.

    I'm Just trying to save myself a little time by not having to design one
    myself if I don't need to..

    My graphics card is a geforce 4MX 440.
     
  2. I think it should be settable to PAL via the driver.

    If its not selectable like sam said, surly a video card that does PAL
    output would be cheaper than a convertor. Check Ebay.

    The software normally should be able to re-set it to PAL. If not, it would
    be cheaper, and of better quality to replace the display card, than to start
    converting the output. The conversion process has losses, and the cost is
    high for the quality you will get.
