Inverted colors with component cables

Message 1 of 1

We just switched from DirecTV to FIOS yesterday. We ran into the common HDMI problem (Envision 42" LCD). I wasn't too bothered, since using component instead isn't the end of the world. The installer left while the STB was still connected via S-Video (as we used that for the DirecTV STB), so I connected the component cables after he was gone.


The colors are inverted. This is not a problem with my DVD player (same cables and inputs) or my Wii, only with the FIOS STB. It's whatever Motorola HD DVR is being installed now.


Any ideas? I've fiddled with every setting I can find to no avail. I've checked probably 6 times to make sure I haven't plugged the cables in wrong.
