You are either running NTSC into a Pal system or the other way around. Check the setup menu on the Virginmedia box to make sure what it's running, then make sure the TV card is running in the same format.
Check to see if the DVD player has a NTSC / PAL switch. For North America it should be in the NTSC position, if it is in the PAL position you will get distorted and or Black / White video. This could also be a setting in the setup menu instead of a physical switch on the unit.
what video device do you plug in to your TV screen, DVD player/VCR or game console?
If you still have the owners manual of your TV screen, look for instruction regarding Color system or video system. this menu will allow you to change color sytem from PAL to NTSC or AUTO system. most likely the reason why you have a black and white color from vidoe input is because of system color compatibilty from your input device to your screen.
Or if your using a dvd player, you can also try accessing the "setup" button and look for video setting. from the video setting there will be selection to choose from: PAL , NTSC, AUTO . always select "auto" so that the color system of your DVD player can change from PAL to NTSC deffending on your TV screen system setup.
for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.
1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc..... 2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC" 3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.
for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"
note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.
There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!
