I recently purchased the Sony BDP s470 to replace my BDP S1 bluray player. I had the S1 run through my sony receiver and then into my TV. When I plugged the same HDMI cable into my new player, the screen showed up as a distorted image. I tried resetting all of the devices and unplugging and replugging all HDMI cables but the distortion remained. I then tried plugging the cable directly into the TV just to test and the picture worked fine. I do not understand why the image would be distorted when running through the same connection as my previous player. The Sony receiver (model DA5200ES) has been handling my HDMI switching for all of my components and to change the input method would require extensive Universal MX 850 remote programming that I am not qualified to do. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this or what is going wrong?

When you say "distorted," what does that mean? Can you describe more specifically? It might help in diagnosing the problem.

good point. The image color is green and black and blue. I can still see the image that is playing but the colors are not adjusted properly. Could this be a setting in the RGB/YcBr options on the player? what happens if I mess with those settings?

Bingo! That definitely sounds like a colorspace issue, and if you play with those settings you will probably find the solution. If that doesn't work, let me know...

Thank you. Should I be worrying that I am losing any picture quality with these settings?

No, not at all. Picture quality is independent of colorspace; colorspace just involves different ways of encoding the same information. The only quality issue, colorwise, comes when you start doing color-calibration stuff, adjusting levels, and all that, where you have to be careful not to make things look bad (though of course all of that, if done badly, is completely reversible)--but your problem isn't in that realm at all. Chances are that a change in colorspace is just going to solve your entire problem all at once.
