New Apple TV 2010 Problems Affecting Sony and Philips HDTVs

The second generation Apple TV was released back in October this year and on the whole the launch was smooth, however we are hearing reports suggesting that when connected to some Sony and Philips TVs colors do not display correctly.

We are currently unsure if this is a widespread problem or not, however if you check out SlashGear you can see a photo and video showing the problem, we have embedded the image at the end of this post.

There are a wide-range of ways in which your display may be affected, you may see a green tint, inverted colors or a black screen, either way it must be extremely frustrating.

Apple is apparently aware of the situation and currently working on a fix for the problem, therefore we will have to keep you posted as we find out more.

We would love to hear whether you have been affected by this problem, therefore feel free to let us know in the comments section, please state which HDTV you have and when you bought it.

I have this problem with my Sony (I’ll get the model later) it’s an intermittent problem and if I disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable it sorts itself.

It happens once an hour or so. I’m delighted to see it’s not just me.

I too, have this problem with my TV – Philips 40PFL9704H – plus it is not possible to read all options from AppleTV "menu" screen because it displays constantly in 'zoom' mode. Philips say there have been many similar reports and a fix has been promised by Apple.
