When I connect a Philips VG-8020 computer to a Philips CM8833 monitor using the DIN monitor cable (DIN to A/V), I get a black and white display.

How can I get color?
Do I need to connect it to a TV using the RF output?

The DIN on 8020 has one pin for monochrome composite and other pin for color composite output (and one for the sound of course, too). Probably your cable picks signal from the wrong pin
