    LCD displays black and white on TV-Out

    Finally got my monitor in my car. It's a cheapy little Pyle, and I thought it would last me until I could get something better. Anyway, the monitor's a little strange. On some sources, it'll only display fine. I can get color on my PS2, and my ReplayTV, but on a home standalone DVD player and on my computer's TV-Out, I only get black and white. Any ideas why? There's a bit of flicker on both the DVD player and the computer TV-out.

    That's weird man. Maybe signal isn't strong enough? Hmm... can you e-mail the Pyle people, or at least the dudes you bought the monitor from?

    I was thinking that, but that would be difficult to troubleshoot much less fix. Pyle tech support is a joke. I'll give them a try though.

    What kind of input is it? RCA or Svideo?

    My money is on a cable issue, PAL/NTSC have different resolutions, but still operate the same RGB signals

    If it's S-Video, maybe it's only getting the luma and no chroma.

    The computer is running on S-Video-TV-out to composite video using an adapter. It's been tested on other TV's and displays in color on those. The other source is a standalone DVD player with composite video.
