Components:



Panasonic TH42PZ85U Plasma HDTV

Sony HT CT 100 sound bar

Playstation 3

XBOX 360

Cable Box



All components are connected via HDMI.





I have a severe color problem when running my PS3 And XBoX 360.



I have all components ( PS3 XBox 360 and Wime Warner Cable box) running through my Sony HTCT100 receiver. The Receiver is connected to my Panasonic 1080P.



PS3 is connected to the BD port

Xbox 360 is connected to the DVD port

Cable is connected to the SAT port.



When running cable, the picture is perfect each and everytime. The problem inconsistently (off and on) occurs when i run my ps3 and xbox 360. The resolution is perfect, but the color is off. (It looks like the negatives of picture. Browns are blues and oranges are blues, and i don't see any yellows. Was watching a movie, and everyone's skin was blue)



When the color is off, toggling from the gaming system to SAT Port, back to the gaming system corrects the problem. The color problems happen inconsistently. (sometimes the color is off, sometimes it is not) Also, when i am running applications on my ps3 with perfect color, I will exit out to the XMB screen, and the colors will be off again.



Solutions that i have tried,



Switching ports

Directly connecting gaming systems to the TV (when doing this, the gaming systems run perfectly)

plugging the power outlet to both the strip and in wall socket

moving the receiver a foot away from the tv.



Please help. I don't know what to do.

I'm wondering if there's an HDMI "handshake" issue here, and it may be based in the HTCT100. It sounds like the colour channels may be getting reversed in the sound bar. Have you considered exchanging your sound bar to see if that's the problem?

So I tried changing the sound bar, and it didn't work. could it be that i have my wireless router next the speaker? could that possibly cause some interference?
