DVD Burner to TV connection

[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DMR-ES15. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I purchased a new Sony TV 40" HD & etc.
Now I want to make the connection between the TWC box-Sony TV and the Panasonic burner, so I can burn programs from TV.
As of now I have the incoming cable thru the Panasonic, to TWC box and then to TV.
When I turn the DVD burner on and got to comp. 2 I get sound an a picture, but the picture is in black n white. I tried switching the rca jacks around and still nothing but black n white. Any ideas out there, I can record of course but I can only get what I see, which is black n white.
Does this connection new something different than my old one ??
Do I need a S vidio cable or what ?? Im confused.
Of course I have the rca connection from the new TWC box to the new Sony TV and it works great.
Sure could use some help.
