    Depending on your NTL box it may not be able to output an S-Video signal. This would cause a B&W picture.
    Your DVD player may be the same, or you may just need to go into the setup menu and tell it to output an S-Video signal.

    The NTL boxes I've used (Pace DiTV-1000,2000,4010 on both platforms) havn't had an s-video output option - only composite :( and RGB :D. Check the screen settings in the TV Guide. S-video splits the chrominance (colour) and luminance (brightness) signals therefore you'll get a b&w picture with it set to composite while using s-video cabling..

    As mentioned above check the output settings on the DVD player are set to s-video.

    If you mean the scart to svideo cable, then make sure there is a svideo signal provided at the scart end in the first place.There may only be an rgb or comp video.
    I've just set up my new dvd and had this problem, I ended up having to change the picture setting (rgb or comp video, can't remember which one now :blush: )
