HELP! Digital TV only in black and white in Brazil

I recently moved to Brazil and I took my Sony Bravia TV. It only plays in black and white when I'm trying to watch cable... but it plays dvd's fine in color. I am assuming it has something to do with the cable signal being different here. Is there some type of thing I can buy so that I can watch cable in color. Please helpSmiley Happy

You might have an NTSC unit. Brazil uses PAL video standards.

Hey CrisH,

Although Best Buy® does not currently offer this type of product, you should be able to find a good number of PAL-to-NTSC set-top converter boxes online using most major search engines. I personally cannot attest to how well these converter boxes function, so I’d strongly recommend reading as many reviews as possible before purchasing one!

Hope this helps you out!
