Then it's the 8-bit computer producing the black and white composite signal, not the converter.

Yep, it's definitely not the device at all.

Thanks to all, I spent most of yesterday trying to make some sense of the MONO signal.
Your comments are helpful

Thanks

Until you mod it to give colour composite (1 wire, 2 minutes). :)

Nope. Happened on both an Amstrad 6128+ and a Spectrum +2b using that converter.
I'll post screenies over the weekend when I get a bit more time.

Neither of those produce a coloured composite signal, so of course it will be black and white if the convertor doesn't use the RGB signals. You could do the composite hack to the Spectrum UHF output and it would then give you colour.

Tried it on my grey +2 and ballsed it. Thankfully the TV with the SCART to HDMI adapter doesn't get used often so it's not bothering me too much.

Yes, never saw what Acorn were trying to achieve with that other than perhaps trying to give a lower spec than the BBC Micro.
