the no-color issue sounds like you may have plugged it into the component jack on your TV. some high-end TVs have multiple methods to input video; those include composite (which most TVs have, and carries the entire video signal on one cable) and component (which is higher-quality, but isn't available on most TVs, and carries the video signal on 3 separate cables).
component video uses three video jacks; one for the black and white signal, and two for different types of color signals. if you're only getting B&W video, you've probably plugged the ipod's cable (which is only made to carry composite video) into the B&W component jack. see if your TV has a composite input (it might also be called RCA, or line, or video) and try plugging it in there.

    i think it is the composite it is plugged into as it is the same place i plug the video camera into and it comes out in colour ok, also the tv is not a high end tv. could it be the cable i am using ?
