At the moment I get a picture but its NOT colour.
IF I plug the WDTV in to my monitor with HDMI it's fine.

WD has gotten out of media players, I don't think they even support them anymore, so a new firmware is not likely going to happen.
I have the original WD media player, the Live and the Live Plus and they all work fine with component, you may have a hardware fault, they may consider that for a warranty return, if it's still under warranty.
You laugh because Iím different, I laugh because youíre all the same.

Im not looking for 'new' Im looking for 'a version' that definitely works on my model with component.
What versions are you using......

I'm using WDlxTV custom firmware, it is far more advanced than anything WD ever released.

Putting it into standby only turns off the video out, it does not put it in a lower powered state, either leave it on, or unplug it as you aren't really saving anything.
