I have a computer I'm trying to hook up to a TV. I used a video composite cable (yellow)to connect the two. When I booted up I could see my desktop on the TV, but the screen looks very garbled -- almost like tracking on a VHS tape. It is also in black and white. The gfx card has no options other than 60 hertz, and I tried the full range of colors/resolutions with no luck.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Also does your TV have a blue VGA port?
