Re: black & white picture
YPbPr refers to the 3 wire component cables designed for HD presentation. These would be RCA type (red, green and blue coponents). 'One" can assume that your DVD is currently set up for HD but you do not have the proper cables attached.

DVD players generally have 4 possible ways to connect them to a TV set.
1. Composite Base-band Video or RCA's (Yellow, Red, White) 2. S-Video or Super Video (S-Video, Red, White) 3. Component Video or YPbPr (Red, Green, Blue, Red, White) 4. HDMI or High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
If you are sure that the connections are correct at both ends make sure that the TV set is on the proper input for the DVD player's signal by pressing the input button, source button, or the proper input button as listed (some remotes have a separate button for each input) on the TV remote.
If the DVD is connected to the TV properly using the yellow, white & red AV cable and the TV is switched to AV and there is still no picture, plug the yellow lead from the back of the DVD player into the green socket. If you see a black and white picture now the DVD output is on Progressive Scan mode. See user manual to turn off Progressive Scan mode.
Ok, I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?
I would need the exact model number to be sure, but there are 3 possibilities:
1) there are red, white and yellow (composite) cables plugged into a slot designed for red, green, and blue (component or YPbPr) cables
2) you have an S-Video cable AND another type of cable plugged into unit at same time
3)the progressive scan has been either activated or deactivated - read your manual to find out how to turn it off [warning: if I am wrong, then turning on the p-scan may cause you to lose picture which is difficult to reverse on some DVD models - I would definitely look into the other possibilities first]
