    Yesterday I went out and bought a Mini-DVI to Video Adapter cable to run my monitor on my Olevia Hd TV. When i plug it to my macbook everything looks fine except for the fact that it shows up in black and white on the external monitor.:confused: So do i need to change my display settings or something? I have tried a few different ones but they still show up in black and white. Any advice?

    Grab some markers and have some fun coloring your TV screen. I found that watercolors work best for this type of problem.

    Definitely, we need to start a whole new trend.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one using this genius marketing idea.

    Though I disagree with watercolors, too wet, drippy, gross. I'd definitely stick with Sharpies, sharpies are like Ducktape, they work for everything. Yes, you can quote me on that!
