I just got a G5 1.8 Dual and have an S-Video connector I would like to run to my 720p tv to view my itunes movies. I am using the s-video in on my HK receiver. The picture is pretty sharp, but it is in black and white. I am running 10.5.8, and I have the same problem when I connect my MBP running 10.6. Any suggestions?

No worries. A direct connect to tv solves the problem.

S-Video was never meant to send 720P.

At best it may do 420P, in which case your TV would likely upscale it.

DVI would be way to go if it can be done.

You mean 480p
