Don't worry either, the 13" B&W you'll have to watch won't have any.

Cross-color. An artifact of composite video encoding and/or decoding that involves the erroneous interpretation of luma information as color. The cross-color artifact appears frequently when luma information having a frequency near that of the color subcarrier appears as a swirling color rainbow pattern. [from C. Poynton's 2003 digital video/HDTV book]
B&W stripe spacing is based on frequency, so narrowly spaced stripes approximate the color subcarrier. -- John

That's not true. The optical effects that cause our eyes to see color patterns
on b&w images would still come thru on a b&w set (assuming all other things
are equal... resolutions and such). It's a trick of your eyes themselves,
not the set.

What is it called when you get rainbows on b&w stripes?
