[mythtv-users] NVidia card, S-Vide, Receiver

Hello all.

I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but I thought I 
would give this  a try.

I previously had all my devices (TV, DVD, MythTV, etc.) plugged into a "System 
Selector", where I would manually push a button on the "Selector" to choose 
whether or not I would like to watch TV, MythTV, DVD, etc.  Everything worked 

I have just hooked up an AV receiver, and everything works great except MythTV 
shows up only in B&W, no colour.  My output card in my MythTV box  (Nvidia 
GeForce FX5500) only has S-Video.  I am using the same S-Video cable that I 
was using to plug in to the "Selecter" box, though I have also tried two 
other cables.  The cables are plugged in nice and tight.  I have tried the 
two other available S-Video ports n the AV receiver, but the same issue.

Not sure if anyone here may have any ideas as to why MythTV is showing up in 
B&W only?  I recently had the AV receiver checked out and according tot he 
shop, everything is perfectly fine on it.  If I hook everything back up to 
the manual "Selector", MythTV looks fine.

I know it is looking like an issue with  the AV receiver, but am hoping there 
are some other ideas as what it might be?  Could it be the card??

TIA for your help and advice.
