    Bought the HD component cable from apple and got no pic at all on my HD tv. Apple store suggested i swop to the regular component cable. Did that and i get sound but my videos are only black and white. Got a panasonic viera plasma so not an old telly.....any suggestions?

    Settings: Video: TV Out: probably set to "NTSC", needs changing to "PAL"? (or vice versa?)

    Tried that, no joy

    No luck with that. Telly was also set to component input.
