    For Christmas I got an NHJ NPM-202 MPEG4 recorder/player. It records in colour if I use the composite connection (Scart to 3 phone cable) but if I use the S-Video connection, it will only record/play in Black & White :confused: . Can anybody shed some light on this?

    i expect you broke one of the pins off the s-video lead
    they are very flimsy, one good push and they snap off.

    or perhaps you need to set it to S-video (s-video sent to a composite input will be B&W)

    Hi will check the lead when I get home. Got a spare one nocking around.

    On the MPEG 4 player I set the input to S-Video and thats when it display Black & White. When I set it to AV its in colour. Have to say resonably impressed with the recording quality of the Video though sound is a bit naff - mono & harsh. Need to look into that a bit further
