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.

Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).
If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).
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 you are using coax cable check to make sure that the TV is on the proper channel that the DVD/VCR is switched to i.e. 3 or 4.
If you are using Componant video (red, green, blue, and red, white) verify that the green is plugged in all the way on both the TV and DVD/VCR and try connecting it to a different Componant input on the TV.
Note: the TV may be YCbCr, and DVD/VCR YPbPr or vice versa these two types usually are not compatible with each other. YCbCr is a digital signal and YPbPr is an analog signal.
If you are using A/V video cables or (yellow, red, white) check the DVD/VCR video setting to see if it is in progressive scan mode, as this can cause a problem with some TV sets that are not compatible.
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]
