if the scart is connected to the av1 input of the tv you should get colour.some tvs are not ntsc(american/jap tv screen format)compatable and this would cause a black and white display.have a look in display/settings/advanced and see if you have a tv or displays tab look here for pal or ntsc set up select pal and you should have colour.

The adapter does not automatically enable your TV to be svhs compatible - some are - some aren't.

i agree but if your using the seven pin svideo adapter supplied with a lot of ati cards and then plugging this into a scart adapter its only a composite signal.

connected teh adapter to the 2nd scart and selected av2. Restarted laptop, this did the trick. Thanks for comments.
