    I am having and issue with my AIW 7500 AGP card. All of a sudden it
    the TV display started switching back and forth from color to black
    and white intermittently. It does this also when viewing the tv out on
    a TV. Some channels don't do this but others its almost always black
    and white. When i try to capture from my video camera through
    composite in it does the same thing. I have tried about eveything,
    settings, drivers, cables, etc. Nothing makes it worse or better. I
    have emailed ATI with the usual automated response. I am putting off
    calling them cause i already spent 100 bucks on the card and don't
    want to pay 1.25 a minute to go through eveything i already have tried
    and get nowhere. I guess as a last resort i will call just to see what
    happens. If anyone has any input i would appreciate it,,

    Are you sure the TV "antenna" cable is tight and the center conductor
    long enough to make good contact with the connector on the ATI board.
    I've seen regular TVs that seemed to do that when they had poor
    antenna connections.

    I have tried different cables and also when i capture from my video
    camera the break out box is connected through a svideo connection.
    When i watch a video file from the harddrive through the video out
    connection i don't have any problem at all. It seems to be the tuner
    part or something like that. Thanks.

  4. If you are using an S-Video connection, this could be a bad cable or
    connector (including a bad "purple breakout box" cable). In an S-Video
    cable, there are two separate cables, one carries the B&W (monochrome)
    signal, the other carries the color signal. If the color signal is open
    or shorted, you get a B&W picture.
