Default Grey scale desktop on my TV (secondary display), but fine on my LCD(primary display)!

Weird. Today, I see my TV output in clone and extended desktop modes,
the TV one (secondary display) is in black and white/grey scale while my
primary monitor (1280x1024 resolution) is in normal colors.

I tried cmd.exe's edit.com and going full screen and I saw colors in
text mode. Then, I tried playing videos fullscreen to TV and it was in
colors too.

Why is my desktop on TV have no colors? I am using S-Video from my MSI
Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB) to my old VCR to my 20" CRT TV. It used
to work and I didn't change anything recently that I could remember.

I did notice ACEEventLog when enabling my secondary display (TV):

[snipped MS help info.]

I tried fiddling with Catalyst v9.5 Control Center (CCC)'s options
especially colors, but nothing helped. Same for hitting defaults on
them. I even tried rebooting my PC to see if something broke. Nope.

Thank you in advance.
