    John,
    you mean your tv has an s-video input, s-vhs and s-video are two different things. This is peculiar to me, ordinarily I would say that one of the pins inside your cable has been bent or broken off entirely, but you proved that not to be the case by trying it on another monitor.

    Strange. I'm curious to know what's up with that myself.

    I would try a different cable, even though the first one worked in another setup. Sometimes the fit between a particular cable and an S-video input is a bit loose, and this can be a symptom (I have one that's like that). If a second cable also gives you a B&W image, then the input on the TV has probably failed.
