I just got my receiver (HK 230) and I tried connecting the component cable from my DVD player to the receiver and then another set of component cable from the receiver to the TV. When I watched a movie it had a greenish tint to it. It seemed like the reds were not coming through.
I double-checked it to make sure I had the right cables going to the right color inputs also.

I connected the component cable directly from the DVD player to the TV and the picture was fine. I tried both component cables and they were both good.

Does this mean that there might be something wrong with the receiver or do I have to set something up with the receiver?

It was the component cable I bought from Target that was defective. It seemed to work at first when connected directly to the TV but then after awhile the screen would go a yellowish green again and then back to normal.

I replaced it with an RCA brand component cable from Home Depot and everything works fine now.
