Sorry to say, you never will get the color right unless you invest in a studio lamp, and the bulbs are expensive. Best you could get would be quartz halogen from the hardware store that carpenters use.

A florescent lamp give you a blue green tint and a regular lamp gives you heavy yellow. There isn't anything you can do about either as there isn't filter lenses sold for the types of cameras.

The only practical thing to do is use a regular digital camera, a 5 mega pixel type that allows you to compensate for lighting conditions, setup a USB feed to your PC, hook up external power to the camera and put it on a tripod.

I know that sounds convoluted, but if you have a spare digital camera this is an option. Otherwise, a really expensive web cam, the type CNN uses for broadband feed from the field will do.

Sorry, this isn't an easy answer. I hope it give you something to go on form here.

Good luck and if you have any further questions based on what I said above, feel free to ask. Just use the comment box below to ask.

Want to change my color picture

if i interpret correctly, you are having some images which have a general blue or sometimes an orange tinge to the complete photograph, those you would like to get back to normal colors, you can use many of the photo editing softwares one of the easier ones i'd like to suggest would be Picasa from Google which is easy to understand and work with and also free

if the above does not answer to your specific issue and you are trying to change colors to specific areas of the Image then you would require more powerful post-processing tools like Photoshop

hope this helps

Lately the tv displays a b&w negative image instead of color. Unplugging and replugging the TiVo T800 (and waiting for the reboot) fixes the problem for awhile. Any ideas?

Strange. Are you sure it's the TiVo at fault? I'm thinking when you turn off the unit and back on again you're actually forcing your TV/Monitor into the correct input. When it next goes into black and white, try selecting different TV AV inputs, normally a square or circle with an arrow in it on the remote control.
If this fixes it, I'd suggest that you have another piece of equipment connected to your TV that's fighting for control.
