Hi, it sounds like the gamma is a little off - could it be you are using a Mac and him a PC / or vice versa ? PC and MAc have different gamma settings.

Alternativly, it could be that the software you are using isn't picking up on 601 encoding (assuming it is SD) and not setting the black and white levels correctly.

If I were you I would check the black levels and have a mess about with the gamma.
