hmmmm
every morning before work ive been playing speedball on mine (and getting soundly whupped)
today i switched it on and it was in black n white?????????
normally its in colour, and didnt think anything had changed on the dvd recorder

so i looked in the settings and fiddled......on multi which its always been on (black n white)
ntsc (black n white)
pal (colour but faded)

however theres two other options.............rgb (which makes it go colour on ntsc and multi too)
and this other abreviation begining with C, i forget it now) and thats colour on pal (much darker, richer, almost impossable to read stuff)

Yeah Stigo, still got a spare one (NTSC)

Sorry I didn't reply, the Puter was playing up - so had to do a complete re-install :shock:

Will PM soon - or you can PM me your address.

5 quid for the C64 DTV and I think the postage for one was around a couple of quid.

:D
