    I've just switched to Dish from TWC. I've been noticing that occassionally I get a color shift from reddish to tannish shades. It's quite noticeable on faces. It seems to last for just a short time then goes away and might not comeback for a while. I have 3 TV's and all exhibit the same behavior. I have feeds to an 811 and a 625. Since it's occuring on all 3 sets I would think it has something to do with the dish or cabling into the house??

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    One suggestion comes to mind. Learn to live with it.

    I never do, and hey I used to charge for my advice. Client service fee's are not free.

    I'd be willing to pay for the correct answer. Is that why you quit charging....

    The answer lies buried deep in the heart of the ocean. You need to have deep pockets to pay my fee because there is no way in hell im going scuba diving for less than 100 an hour.

    Make sure your TV does not have auto-color turned on. It will try to make everything into flesh tones. Use manual tint adjustment -- neither too greenish nor too magenta.

    The off-air color bars on the movie channels are a good way to calibrate. You could also try using RCA cables or S-Video instead of Channel 3-4. That clears stuff like that up.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I don't have auto color on. I'm using S-video on 2 sets and Dvi on my HD set.

    As I said this only occurs occassionally. I'm in the process of checking all outside cabling etc.

    Thanks again.
