    Anyone have any idea what can be done to fix my component video input on my TV. It's a 60" Phillips, model #60pp9502, and between the two HD inputs(DVI and Component) there is a drastic color difference. Through DVI the colors are perfect, but with the component video input(I'll use the star wars dvds as examples) R2D2 is not blue, but green. What could be the cause of this?
    I have tried different cables and different dvd players, with same results.

    Does the TV have a manual selection for taking as input RGB vs. YUV or RGB vs. Y/Pb/Pr?

    Aside from that, you may just need more than one memory to hold the different calibrations for DVI vs. component video.

    No, there is no manual selection. I just have the basic inputs 1 thru 3, then the 2 HD inputs 4 &5...input 4 (component) and input 5 (DVI).
    When I adjust the color or tint on any of the inputs, it changes it on all of them.
