Production monitor problem
I have been using an old 8" Sony production monitor and everything was fine except the screen is pretty small.
I had the oppurtunity to get a JVC 13" production monitor for free so I snapped it up.
However I am having a problem with it.
When I connect my composite output from my Dv deck to it, the playback is back & white (almost greenish tint) to it, and I can't adjust anything other than contrast/brightness on the monitor.
BUT if I hook my camcorder up the monitor everything works and looks good?
I even double checked and hooked up my old sony monitor to my dv deck output and everything is fine.

What could be the problem? Any ideas?

To further complicate things, I did some capturing with the deck, and while it is capturing the preview on the monitor looks FINE!
However as soon as I view the clip using Vegas external monitor, it is back to being greenish black & white.

Would it be possible that my firewire card or cable could be having issues? It is a recently bought USB2/Firewire/SATA combo card.

Just for the record, it was the firewire card. I swapped in my old one and everything is fine now.
