Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 11:16 PM (in response to irfanhab)Same issue here on my MacBookPro4.1 (running 10.6.1) with the Apple DVI to Video adaptor.
As soon as I want to connect my Mac to the TV, I'm getting a B/W output. Nothing helps except rebooting ... which is extremely annoying.
I guess this is driver related because I never had this issue while running 10.5.x
Hope the guys at Apple fix this ASAP.
CheersMacBook Pro4.1, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 10, 2009 4:54 AM (in response to Clifford Hill)Did 10.6.2 fix this?
I've got an identical MacBook with the same problem (color gradient across the screen on composite output). Unfortunately, Applecare told me that I had a bad cable and I bought another one (didn't fix it of course). The only fix was to go back to 10.5.8.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 11, 2009 9:58 PM (in response to irfanhab)Latest update finally fixes this. It was about time...Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2009 10:50 AM (in response to irfanhab)10.6.2 has still not resolved this issue. What's the deal?MacBook Pro 2.5GHz (Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2009 6:03 AM (in response to irfanhab)same issue here.
Also, I cannot hook up to Epson projectors that I hooked up to perfectly EVERY DAY for the past year. I have tried every resolution and refresh rate I see, and no difference.15" macbook pro (late 2007 santa rosa), Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2009 4:07 PM (in response to irfanhab)Still a problem here too, although it seems to be somewhat random. I've had sometimes when I've plugged it into my TV and had colour, and other times I haven't. My roommate who also has a MBP (though he got his before me) hasn't had the problem, though we've never actually tested it (but so far every time we have plugged his computer into the TV we've always had colour).
anyways, this is annoying, and as usually Apple doesn't seem to give a hoot.
Keep sending feedback guys, maybe eventually they'll look into it.MacBook Pro 15 Inch, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2009 6:22 PM (in response to ehmjay)Still a problem here. Works fine until the laptop goes to sleep. Once it comes out of sleep, the display is unusable, and only a reboot will fix.
Seriously Apple, what's so hard about the video driver initialization code that you guys haven't figured this out yet? It WORKED in Leopard!MacBookPro4,1, iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 19, 2009 8:13 AM (in response to fracnl)As said before: it worked under Leopard. What so f*ing difficult to make it work under SL?
Sorry but this is ridiculous.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2009 6:29 PM (in response to fracnl)same problem here on 10.6.0, 106.1, and 10.6.2.
when it happens: the second time i connect an external TV to my DVI-to-svideo cable.
what happens: horizontal rainbow gradient. the greater the saturation of the original source color for that pixel, the greater the output rainbow effect.
so far the only appreciable difference between snow leopard and leopard is that this doesn't work. nice upgrade.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2009 1:07 AM (in response to umut)Report the issue to make it prior!
Use this with copy/paste:
External TV Display is black and white when connect via DVI to S-Video
The first time you connect your pc to an external screen there's no problem. When you put your computer in sleepmode the external screen turns black and white until you restart your computer.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2009 9:48 PM (in response to Mondo Generator)Just called and spoke to senior admins about this problem. Spent about an hour and a half talking about the issue and trouble shooting.
Bottom line is that it has been forwarded to the engineering department and I'll get a call back about it on Friday.
They said it would likely have to be rolled out with 10.6.3 but that's just a guess on the senior admins part. I also sent them a copy of the link to this forum as they obviously had no clue about how widespread this was and need all the help they can get.
Fingers crossed.MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
