Re: black and white output on analog
No I dont think a defective cable could cause no color but you never know in this world of wacky electronics.. I would first check in the menu and see if theres a video output mode and make sure its in the mode that your tv is Like pal seacam or ntsc.. if this is all in the norm then i would say that you have a croma demod problem in your dvd player and unless you have a scope and a print showing where the croma couples to the video then its time for a pro BUT if it works on the RGB output then you really dont need the video output.

Hi, firstly some terminology: yellow cable - video composite (worst quality) white/red - stereo analog audio blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)
You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.
If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.
For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.
For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.
Are you getting this on all video outputs from the DVD? the yellow analog out + the red/blue/green + the S video?
Did you try connecting a different source? a digital cable TV tuner, or another DVD player?
sometimes DVD players get screwed on some outputs, while the rest stay fine. I have a DVD that has an analog video out that shows an only black and white picture, while the red/blue/green works fine.
