i had no problem with getting my TV card to work in color
(Hauppauge WinTV Nicam) but i also had problems with the sound--
make sure that your sound card is installed properly on the right IRQ setting and kernal moduals-- try "insmod sound | less" and see what errors you get etc..
as for the Black & White problem, i have no suggestions--
if you do get the sound/color to work though and you have KDE, then try KwinTV which is really cool
i'm not sure if you get it on the debian disks because i had it during my suse installation
