So my question is whether this unit has HDMI issues or is this "normal" issue that can be fixed with a reset if it happens again? Again the reason I need to know fast is because I can get it back to Amazon within 30 days! Thanks guys.
Green? Could this be the RGB/YCbCR setting in the video chain clashing? Things should work themselves out, but check your settings. Check the spec of your display, if it is equally ok with either, set it to YCbCr - I think that is most agreeable.
IIRC, green is when one RGB is being sent, and a device (Onkyo or Display) is set to YCbCr. Violet/purple when vice versa.
In your case, the AVR reset has worked, but that is not concrete proof - handshaking HDMI is notoriously bad.
There is a lot of slating of Onkyo HDMI on here, but AFAIK this was a predominant issue with earlie,r higher temperature running models.
I would keep, relax and enjoy. As I do. :-)
