I bought a NV-DS15B camcorder just under 2 years ago (also with an extended warranty to 5yrs). I have a general question on hooking it up to a (new) TV. To get full colour video I need to connect the AV cable (L+R and Video) and S-Video cable to the TV. BUT why do I need to connect the Video lead when surely S-Video would be enough? If I leave the Video lead unconnected then I only get a B&W picture - surely this means that only Luminance is being carried over the S-Video cable. I get a full colour picture if I don't connect the S-Video lead - and this S-Video lead seems to make no difference. I'm convinced I'm watching composite video as opposed to S-Video. What is going on? As an aside on this model, mine emits a high pitched noise when it is first turned on for a while which seems to disappear when it has warmed up. This is probably the internal PSU, but is this normal (it's always done this). Also the zoom motor is very audible on the recording!! Anyone else suffer from these? I previously had the DS11B model but took it back to swap it for the DS15 because of the extra features. The DS11 didn't have these 2 problems!
