So it is through RGB I can switch between 60/50 Hz when pressing select but composite is always 60 hz?

When connected through RGB it does not matter if the signal is 50 or 60 Hz, your TV will support both.

However for a composite connection it is always hardwired to either NTSC (Japan/US 60 Hz) or PAL (Europe 50 Hz). If you switch the VDP to the non-default frequency for your machine (only possible MSX2 or higher) the RGB output will work fine, but the composite output will display in black/white or not work at all.

Afaik think the Sanyo PHC-23J uses a standard RGB connector. What inputs does your TV have, though? In Europe we have SCART and in Japan they have the JP-21 connector, but I don’t know about US TVs. If it has HDMI then you can use an RGB DIN -> SCART cable (sold on e.g. retrocables.es) and pass it through a cheap SCART to HDMI converter (sold on eBay, Amazon, etc.).

p.s. RGB will also give a much better image quality compared to composite video.
