"ColorStream" is nothing more than Toshiba's trademark name for their component video interconnect- it shouldn't function any differently than and other standard component interconnects.
What model is the Toshiba TV?
The settings on many TVs that have component interconnects may require that you designate the type of input/output being used or the image may not be properly displayed. Progressive scan is often not enabled by default, even when component video output is selected. Check in your menu options.
Menus says DTV and DVD for Colorstream input
Hmm I am not sure what model the TV is. I cannot find a model number on it and it is a few years old now, but I did notice that in the menu for the Colorstream input there is DVD and DTV. It is currently set to DVD so I guess I will try it at DTV.
I did not know there were different settings for progressive scan like that.
Toshiba colorstream vs component video
I have several old Toshibas and several DVD players/recorders.
To make this work.
1) Do not select progressive scan (P) mode. Stay in the (I) mode. The older Toshibas with colorstream don't support ptogressive scan.
2) make sure Y Pb Pr mode is selected in the DVD player set up menu (In other words, turn off S-Video). Remove any S-Video cables.
3) connect Y-Y, Pr - Cr, and Pb - Cb.
It should be working in interlaced mode.

This sounds like the inputs are in Component mode.
Please top post with the full model number and the product manual (link or copy of the manual) so folk can check it out.
