      I THINK it will.   The only test  on a PAL machine
was done by Torsten Dittel and he said it worked.   I have
added a jumper to allow selection of operation with NTSC
or PAL frequencies.    The RGB on the coco3 is
nearly the same for the two versions with only a slight 
difference in main oscilator frequences. So it might  not
be representative of another machines output.
      IF pressed to say I think it will work on  any machine
with RGB output if the right connector was made for it.
This includes the Amiga and Atari ST.   The only way to
know for sure is to try it.    I would be willing to loan  one
to someone who wanted to try it first and see.   Then they
could decide to buy it IF it worked or send it back if it
