converter changes picture to only black & white

I've got an RCA converter which works fine. However, on my older COLOR TV (not sure of age), when I connect the converter, the picture for all channels only comes in black and white (I get plenty of channels, but there all black and white).

I've checked the same converter box on a newer tv and it works fine (ie, the picture on all channels is in color).

Anyone have any ideas on a fix (other than buying another tv)?

Hi Lynn,
are you using the same cable to test out the DTV box on both TVs?

Also, which kind of cable are you using for both TVs, is it coaxial (one connector on each end) or Composite (red, white, yellow, 3 prong connecter on each end).
