Sony DG820 Amp --- Mac Mini --- Sony KDLV4000 - Green Tinge!


Active Member
Can anyone help with something quite strange that I can't figure out or see anything online regarding the problem!

New Mac Mini purchased Friday. I have that into my DG820 AV Receiver then into my trusty Sony KDLV4000 TV. Everything looks great (apart from text being super small!) but when I change from say PS3 or TV back to MAC MINI on my AMP and wake the MAC up from sleep, there is a green tinge to the screen:confused:

The only reason I am posting this in amp is if I quickly turn the amp off and on, presto back to normal.

Any ideas?

I can only suggest you ensure the Mac's video output settings are correct and comply with your TV's capabilities.

Look in System Preferences --> Hardware --> Display

or just another HDMI foible..... I sometimes get a yellow tinge when I turn my pj on if the source and plasma are already on. By turning the source off/on (usually sky+HD) again usually fixes it.
