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).

God Bless

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
