    Ive had a similar problem with a 9550. I cant remember the exact cause, but i looked it up on the ati website and found that i needed an adapter to get colour on my tv.

    If i remember correctly, i think it was that some older tv's support composite but not s-video, or it may have been around the other way.

    http://www.svideo.com/ This is the site i was directed to ages ago but itlooks somewhat different now. There was a cable/adapter that was specially designed to correct the black and white problem on there but im not sure where it is now.
