Without more information to go on I would say that it is in low light condition. If this is equipped with night vision that it records in black and white in low light situations. The recording feature on the DVR may also be the cause. Make sure you are set to record in color.
Missing information alert. What is meant by "to TV black and white"? Are you saying you can't get playback on a black and white (and therefore old, analog) TV set? What connection set up are you using between recorder and the playback TV? At first glance it would appear you might need a digital to analog converter to process the DVR output prior to feeding it as a SD (standard definition) signal into your TV set for mmonitoring. thanks for clarifiying your question, including a description of your setup.
well...the reason its sooo hard is that this modulator is not intended for this use. its used for BIG jobs. you can normally do what you want with a simple rf modulator you buy at walmart or radio shack as it has a cable in and cable out, but
You dont even need a rf modulator.
The VCR can do it for free simply; hook the yellow , white if your vcr has red as well (depending on how old )...BOTH or all Three color to color from VCR(INPUT) to DVD
then use a piece of coax cable from the vcr out to tv.
test vcr by making sure that it work on either channel 3 - or 4 on tv. (leave VCR on)
Then to test your DVD connection first turn DVD player on.;.Then on front of VCR press channel down ON VCR until it says L1 or L2 this is under channel 2 when channel downing.
you should now see the dvd player on screen on either L1 or L2 depending on vcr.
now buy doing this your vcr must be on the L1 (L2) anytime you watch a dvd but when you want to watch a tape you just put it in and press play since TV itself is never changed.
when you want to go back to dvd,...stop tape and should still be right on the L1 or L2 again.

That's because this is a quad. It compresses all 4 video feeds into 1 file. When you play it back, it decompresses the video and shows you each camera. Playback through this unit is the only way to see 1 camera at a time.
To be able to copy 1 camera shot to a DVD, this is what you need to do:
You need to have a TV with Video in and Video out jacks.
Connect the Quad to the TV Video in jack and connect the TV Video out jack to your DVD Video in jack. Playback a single camera shot on the quad to the TV and hit record on your DVD. - The DVD will record whatever is shown on the TV.
Best to get a USB thumb drive and download the video needed to the thumb or flash drive. Put it on the computer and there you can use a program like Snagit to capture the best parts and save it for police. Saves a lot of wasted time
