Be sure your TV settings are correct (located in ATI's control panel). Settings should be tuned to S-Video and NTSC.

Also, have you tried plugging into another TV? I used to have the problem past with a certain GeForce3 card under Windows 2000 - apparently XP fixed the problem, but after re-installing win2k on the machine, the problem occured again.

If supplied, try using a composite (RCA) cable and see if the same results.

As a first resort, I suggest using TV Tool (helped with my win2k issue)

well i am using ntsc and it is still black and white. I think this guy gave me the wrong cable becuase he gave me a S-video to a RCA connector. On the S video adaptor.. there are two wires comming out and only 1 wite from there to the tv. So i dunno..

ATI has similar tools, if you go to your display properties, click on the "settings" tab, andon the Advanced button. You will see the ATI Monitor properties. If you click on the Displays tab you should see an option for your TV. Make any necessary adjustments if needed.

Also, if you don't see this, try to update your video driver.
