your late-night lullaby
The badgerhaus home theatre DVD player recently developed an odd malfunction: it switched to black and white only. Watching everything in black and white evokes cinema before color for me, but the Fritz Lang version of Akira proved unsatisfying so we went shopping. The new wifi-equipped player supports Youtube directly, which is how I found this charming cover version of INXS' Love Will Tear Us Apart. Sleep well.

Interesting. If you're using S-video or component, it sounds like the luminance signal is getting through, but not chrominance. On the other hand, wifi-equipped player!

S-video. I replaced cable and the problem persisted. Moved DVD from video1 input to video2, b&w through v2. Moved Xbox to video1 input and got color. If there's a config option IN the DVD player I don't remember activating it and I can't find it.

I figured you'd probably done all that, but since you hadn't mentioned it, the problem-solving part of my brain forced me to bring it up.

I hadn't said, so perfectly reasonable. :)

Interesting twist: powered up XBox this morning (fed into Video2 on AV receiver through an S-Video switch with the Wii) and it displayed as black and white. Powered up Wii, flipped S-Video switch, color on Wii into Video2. Flipped back, b&w with Xbox.

Moved cable from Video2 on AV receiver to Video1, XBox b&w, Wii color. Moved cable back to Video2, XBox color, Wii color. Might not have been the DVD player. Might be the AV receiver.
