    I followed this video:
    to make a cable from my atari 800 monitor jack to my (modern HDTV) television.

    But when I tried it out, the audio worked, but it was just a monochrome video. When I switch to the RF jack, it's in color, but of lesser quality video. I'm pretty sure there are no stray wires touching anything.

    Any ideas what I may have done wrong?


    The Atari 800 has separate luminance and chroma outputs. If your TV has an S-Video input (small round multi-pin socket) there are adapters, or I think
    the signals can be mixed with a few resistors.
