    Hey all,

    I've been trying to connect my mbp (older model) to my Hitachi plasma TV via S-video. I have the Apple DVI to video adapter and the first time I hooked it all up it looked great. The next time, and from then on no matter what I do the picture on the TV is in gray scale (LCD is still color). I've gone into system prefs and tried every setting in there I could find, and even tried to calibrate it using the calibration assistant. Nothing. I've also tried different inputs on the TV (the two plain video ports there are), as well as tried adjusting every imaginable video/color setting I could find on my TV. I'm completely lost at this point. Anyone out there have any ideas? Oh, I've also tried different video cables and of course fn F7. Any info would be a great help!

    I have the same problem!
    Restart have usually fixed it. Tried with NTSC and PA setting no difference, but restart fixes it.
    It was never a problem before 10.6 tho
