Hey experts

I was given some "Eastern" :)  dvds, they play in colour on PC, but black and white on my dvd player.

Any thoughts, or if you want more information, just ask

Thanks

Hi cofneverlivetotell,

If your disk is in NTSC format and your TV is PAL you will get a black and
white picture (in the PC you would get a color picture).

Well, since im only 15 i think £50 is a little much to spend on something like that, my other question should give a more affordable solution to this problem.

I will award points to you anyway

Thanks
