Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.
There's a few things you can try - change the source or how the source is hooked up. If you are hooked to satelite or cable box (source) try hooking hooking up to the tv (video 1or2 input) with video cables (RCA type -red.wht, Yel) from your source. Also try seeing if you have color when you play a DVD (if available).If it doesn't matter which source you use or how you hook it up you still have no color than the problem is internal to the TV.
These sets have a common problem with an internal comb filter circuit that can cause no color - but it usually also causes distotion in the oicture as well

You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
If you are using the component video input change the input setting of the DTV input from RGB to Y, Pb,Pr also make sure the DVR's setting is 1080i output. this set can only except 480i, 480p and 1080i only. also make sure you have the green wire to the green input the red to the red input (some have mistaken the red audio for the red video) and the blue to the blue input.
Sounds like a Cable problem or what is going through your tuner. Since the other inputs are good, because when you have a convergence problem it will effect all inputs. So if you have another cable box to try, do it first and then you can start eliminating things.
