I don't know if this is a factor, but the component connections are only 3-way (ie 2 of the input sockets on the VW10 are unused). So, maybe your three (!) component cables are connected to the wrong sockets on either the Arcam or the VW10. Also, you have to tell the VW10, via the menu, that the input on (eg) input A is a component video signal. Sorry, I'm at work so I can't remember the exact sequence - but from recollection it was fairly intuitive.
