    black and white picture?

    okay, so we hook up our receiver to the video 1 set on the TV, hoping to gain surround sound from the TV channels.....but the picture is black and white? Is there any reason why this would change it? We are kinda at a loss because we cant figure why the picture went black and white...

    something simalar happend last night while i was on a video shoot for a wedding. we had our cameras hooked up to the projectors for a live feed, the image ended up being black & white. It turned out the BNC cable was bad(probally had a kink in it somewhere) we replaced the cable and picture was perfect(with color)

    yah, we dont have that. it wont change from black and white even with the cable running straight to the tv, bypassing the receiver and everything. There is a little button beside the power LED that I MAY have pressed on accident, but I doubt it changes the **** color setting.

    You time warped to the past when TV was only in B&W. Good thing you made it back OK.

    what do u mean by composite? there is a video 1/video2/analog out/composite/and then all the computer screen/HDTV crap i guess.

    We are just trying to hook up basic cable to come in on color, and go from there as to how possibly to get cable hooked into the surround sound system.

    What should things be hooked up as just to get the **** basic cable to be color? It just comes out of the wall, into the TV with the little twist connect deal.

    ok so the coax cable form the wall(antenna/cable/satelite connection) plugs into the reciever and the reciever should have a video out, plug the rca from the video out (rca)into the tv input(rca). i think this is how it should be setup. try diffrent rca cables if neccessary

    Re: black and white picture?

    we live in a neighborhood with exclusive rights to the cable company. We have to get some sort of satallite setup to get anything else, no land lines allowed. They are speaking of doing HDTV soon, but who knows. Is this when you use HDMI and all? When you have access to the HDTV stuff?

    Also, is this a good tv compared to others? I really dont know much, nor does my dad on this type stuff, but hey.....its cool looking with a good picture haha.
