I bought an S- video cable to connect a tv to my pc. The picture is showing in black and white with a black box around it. I have checked the settings over and over, and I just cant figure it out. I ran through all the various TV formats (PAL NTSC...) I ran through my video card properties and everything seems to check out. The color correction and device selection tabs are all set correctly. When my computer boots up, the Windows logo is shown in color, but once I get to the login screen the resolution gets crappy and it goes black and white. Any thoughts?

You might want to tell everyone what card you have and what player you are using. I have a fx5200 to a TV setup and I find most problems are with certain filters or codecs.

Hi,

Under nview settings choose your tv format but after that also click the advanced button at the bottom on the same tab and select either S-video or Composite depending on the type of connector going into your TV.
