    Dont know if this if the right forum, but. I live in Canada and will shortly be returning to Blighty. We have a portable dvd and an Xbox that will come back with us. I have connected them to a UK TV we have here via the av cables and I only get black and white. ITs a basic Tv and I dont believe there are any colour settings to alter anything. Am I flogging a dead horse or can this be rectified.

    If a TV doesn't accept an NTSC signal properly you will usually get a B/W picture only,
    so you could be looking at a new TV.

    However most TV's in the UK that were manufactured in the last 5 years or so accept an NTSC signal no problem.
