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.

dear your tv have three color systems and when you play vcd which is recorded in pal and you watched color when you play dvd which is recorded in ntsc system which is not available in your tv so you watch as black and white
I presume you bought a PHONO preamp from RS. That should be all you need. Is the TT otherwise functional? Loud hum is usually an ungrounded or unshielded signal cable. Phone cartridges create such a small primary signal that any external airborne electrical noise entering the circuit will be very large in comparison. Check cables and make sure the headshell is locked in correctly on the tonearm. Examine the small cables connecting the cartridge. Dual = good turntables. I have a CS1249 from the 70's.
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
