Thanks, that's great.
I have 2 for one of the sets...for some reason I think I had an XBR1 and an XBR2. I'll check the bulbs when I get home tonight.

Are you connected via HDMI? Try a different cable and/or component connections. But first, make sure the current cable is pushed all the way in both at the TV and the satellite box (and any AV Receiver or Processor in betwee) That can actually cause this, too, especially since your OTA picture is fine.
I misstated my connections but it probably doesn't matter. My DVR HMDI cable goes directly to the TV, not thru the receiver.

Anyway, I checked the connections and all are tight. I swapped out the HDMI cable with a new one and the DVR color is still bad. I didn't have enough cables to try the component connection.

I noticed the Sony menu is also off color which leads me to believe it is the OB. The OTA broadcast seems to be better but maybe it too is off. I don't watch much OTA. What I have noticed is watching a hockey game (Go Hawks!) the ice has a yellow look to it from the DVR but OTA it is nice and white.

Put black and white image on screen. You'll be able to see better if there is the a green/yellow tint.
