    Same problem, but was fine until added Wii. Wii color is fine, but not DVDs, which are in black and white.  Don't see any place to change the region using set up.  Thanks

    did you fix it? I have exactly the same after adding a Wii - thouigh the Wii doesnot go near the Bose unit - I have straight to the tele! B& W DVDs are only OK for so long!

Your player is set to the wrong format ie either ntsc if your in europe or pal if your in america, you need to go to the setup and make sure the dvd setup is for your region. pal in europe,ntsc in america..most dvd players automatically switch.but sometimes people change the settings without knowing.

Unable 2 watch dishtv in Benq LCD SD3731 with DVD cbl plugged in

The S_Video connection has precedence (most likely named AV1) over the RCA/composite one (better image quality - usually named AV2) so it will be automatically selected. If you want to view thru AV2 input you will have to select it manually every time you want it.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD

Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

Use a scart lead to connect it to the TV, that should cure it.
