Graphics card - TV Out

  Bailey08787 11:52 10 Oct 2005

I've just installed a new graphics card, which I'd like to hook up to my TV (for watching movies).

I've successfully done this before with other graphics cards, and have successfully done it with my new one. The only problem is the picture on the TV is black & white.

I remember having this problem before, but can't remember how I overcame it.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

My graphics card is a 128MB nVidia Geforce 6600GT PCI-Express Graphics with TV-Out and DVI

I'm connecting the PC & TV using a cable from the TV-Out to the scart on the back of the TV (as I've successfully done so before)

thanks - tried the solutions in that link, but to no avail

so any more suggestions welcome

Somewhere in your graphics card properties you should be an option for NTSC or PAL. Choose PAL.

Hope this helps.

i've changed it to I/PAL - for the UK - but the picture is still black and white

Check the tv is not NTSC

the tv's English - its PAL - either way, I've tried it on both PAL and NTSC

Are you using the s-video cable that came bundled with the card or one you had from elsewhere?

If its a new type tv,make sure its on the correct av channel,mine has av1/2/3 and sat1/ front av, the sat1 always gives black and white pics.There may also be an av scanner in the tv set up to scan the av channel for the best pic.

click here which should help, i have nvidia graphics and that tool was perfect for me also make sure you have a full pin svs cable, also dont forget tv out does not generally carry audio which needed to be set up seperately in my case.
