Are you using a Time Base Corrector (TBC) in between your VCR and your Blackmagic card? VHS tapes don't produce a stable enough signal for digital capture without one, especially on "cheap" consumer VCR's

Have your configured the Blackmagic capture card in your computers control panel? There is an additional "Blackmagic Control Panel" installed with the Media Express software that has to be configured in addition to Media Express and Final Cut.

Specifically, if you are seeing black and white, it is most likely the card is set to "Component" instead of Composite input mode. In Component video mode the same "Y" connector is used for the black and white portion of a YPbPr signal, whereas in Composite mode both the black and white and color portions come in on the same wire.
