    I just setup the Vista Beta and am having a weird problem. Keep in mind in
    Windows XP what I am trying to do worked fine. I have my TV setup as my
    secondary display. When I installed Vista and hooked this up the TV only
    comes out in Black and White. Anybody else having this problem? I loaded
    the latest Catalyst drivers and I am still getting the same results.

    An S-video connectin reverts to Black and White if your graphics card does
    not sense the proper impedence from the S-Video connection at the other this
    can happen with a bad cable connectior or with some s-Video receiver chips
    on TVs.
    If you set up the MCE connection to not use Automatic to sense the
    connection type and instead you tell it you have S-Video you should get your
    color back.

    If You're not using catalyst I cant say,but in catalyst under displays
    manager tab,disable/remove tv,then have it check for displays again and then
    eable the tv.By the way,how does the acceleration work under rc1?(overlay
    direct3d)In beta2 it was broken.
