I have a conference room set up I am working on and I've come across a very odd problem.

I have a workstation which has a projector as a primary monitor.  I am attempting to set up a TV as a secondary monitor, for use in a different part of the conference room.

I have an S-Video out on the workstation (XP Professional, 2GB RAM, 512MB NVidia Graphics with 4 outs (1VGA, 2DVI, 2Svid)) and this goes into an adapter (Svideo to RCA).  The TV image is black and white.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Just a quick one I would suggest that you check the output settings on your graphics card for the TV. make sure that you have your settings correct NTSC – for US TV’s PAL- for European TV’s I have had this before from a laptop outputting on S-Video.

    I have an svideo cord that has a short in it. When the cord is twisted the wrong way, I get BW video. Try another cable.
