I hooked up my vcr via a SONY DCR-109PC and from there via firewire to my mac, importing the analog signal into iMovie6. The image and audio came through nicely except the picture came in only black and white! The tape was taped in NTSC, the Sony is an NTSC version so I don't know what happened. Would anyone know and can help, please?

This only time I've had B&W issues is with S-Video not being completely plugged in properly.

Try taping to the camera and play that back to see if the camera is getting colour.

Thanks for that, and I will give that a try. I am using the regular red/white/yellow connectors as my vcr does not have an S-Video outlet.
