The issue is that while you can feed it a color composite input, that input is converted to grayscale aka luma, so you need to take the luma output from the input section instead of the R,G,B outputs. If you want to input color and work with that color, you need to input with component video (not composite video).

With it set up the way you have it in that photo, unplug the G and B channels entirely, and move the left end of the white cord up a spot into the luma jack. That should let you see the video.
