try the BIOS files from here, the one on 3dfxzone may be wrong. if it doesn't work, it's possible that this is not controlled in the BIOS, but that the tuner itself is set to that standard, if so, there may be no way to change it.

I have Bios ver. 2.15.07 (got with my card), but I have some problems with tuner, and I see that almost everyone have bios ver. 2.15.05 and I want to try it. My card IS PAL NOW, so it's not tuner problem.
I will now DL file, and I will try it.

Goto Stanto's site and download the BIOS file there.
He has tested them all and they are all what they are supposed to be.
The FAQ page is very helpful too.

Thanks again.

P.S. Like you can see, I have original bios ver. 2.15.07 PAL (come with my Voodoo card), and if you want I can send it (just say where), and see how this version of bios work.
