New Apple TV 3rd gen, rented "Soapdish" HD, all colors wrong: purple lipstick, blue skin etc.


All other video sources (YouTube etc.) OK, so not hardware.


Wot gives? Any ideas? Anyone else have this happen, on this movie or any other?


Also, any idea how to get a refund for this?

    Check your HDMI connection.


    Try altering HDMI settings in the Settings menu on the unit.


    I suspect it's a problem with the video itself however otherwise everything on the unit would look bad.


    In your itunes account in itunes or in the e-mail invoice use the 'Report a Problem' link.
