    Hey, I just upgraded from an HTIB system to a Yamaha 5850 reciever. While
    I was changing things I figured it was a good time to switch from s-video cable to component video cables. No matter how I ran things from the reciever to the tv, Non HDTV, I only get a black and white picture. Am I doing something wrong, or do you need a HDTV to use component cable, or what? Can someone please help before I start ripping out my hair? Thanks in advance!!

    What type of inputs does your tv have on it? Does it have the green, red, and blue inputs on the back? Also what is the make and model of the TV?

    The TV is a JVC 27". It has the red, green, and blue inputs, as well as the s-video and the regular video input. The S-video cable works, as does the video, but not the new component cables...

    What is the Model number of the TV?

    There may be a setting on the tv's menu that you can set the component video input on and off. If the image is black and white then the only thing that is is getting a signal from is the green cable which carries luminance only, i.e. the magnitude that each pixel is used. So check the settings of the DVD player or whatever the source and the TV.

    The tv is either a Jvc av-27d303 or av-27d203 ( dont know the difference).
    I am just looking through the manual to see if there is a certain type of input
    to program.
