    I turned my xbox on today and all the games are in black and white. I changed the input on my tv and it was still in b&w so I know the TV input didn't go bad. I guess this is my xbox? Anyone ever hear of this before? I'm using the AVpack and running s video and optical for 5.1. I was also thinking the AVpack could have gone bad? Any other ideas? I need some color back!

    It's not your XBox (luckily), it's your S-Video cable. One of the metal prongs has broken off. I've had that happen to me before with an S-Video cable. Replace the cable and you'll be fine.
