Being something of a novice I have quickly become stuck on my setup, the problem being that DVD (with a new Panasonic DVD Recorder) can only be viewed in black and white. I have tried connecting using components and using scart with the same problem on each, although the picture quality itself is excellent (particularly using components). The DVDR plays in colour on my old TV (using scart), and I have no problem with receiving colour on the Sharp for freeview or ordinary channel reception, so it is not a simple matter of the monochrome function being switched on by mistake. I cant seem to trace this back to any function options on either the Sharp or the DVD....does anyone have any ideas what might be going on?? Thanks.
