DVD and VCD that have been created on my friends computer and run fine on his VSX-D812? will only run in black and white on my VSX-D712.
His receiver is only a few months newer than mine but is the next model.
Is this likely to mean that my receiver needs some sort of firmware upgrade or something to make it run the same as his?
Thanks for any help .....
First we need to know how you are relating the video problem to the receiver.
What video inputs are you using from your DVD player to the receiver, and from the receiver to the display you are using.
What display are you using?
The receiver does not control or modify any video sources... it only selects (switches) them, and is basically just a pass through.

There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player. Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.
It's Format Problam.. yr Country Standard Format is May Be PAL so when u play NTSC cd/dvd output is black and whight you have to change setting video format to AUTO and also chek yr pricute colour sillaction is set as AUTO..
Do you have your DVD player running through your receiver? You want the red and white (audio) cables to go from your DVD player to your receiver and the yellow (video) cable to go from your DVD player to your TV. Separate the red, white, and yellow cable into separate strands if you need to, but be careful not to tear the insulation. They should pull apart fairly easily. If I'm totally off or you're using a coaxial or component video/audio cables or a fiber optic cable, let me know. Hope this helps
It seems that you have get the color system setting of your Tv wrong. Sony uses the Pal(it's a format for the transmission of signals) color system , so check into your TV's color system settings and change it to pal , if that doesnt work then change it to Ntsc.
