I have recently purchased a new hd tv the picture seems very dark and has a green tinge to the colour, I have tried changing the settings on the tv but to no avail, Xbox seemed ok on previous crt tv but has this problem got anything to do with last online update? Also there seems to be a buzz when screen frames change when playing a dvd. The tv is fine on its own and standalone dvd player also works fine. What have I done wrong if anything i.e setup!

You may need to change your HD settings on the back of the console ( HD setting is actually on cord ) I had that issue when I first went online w/360 . If that does not help u know X box costumer support will repair any damaged system prob. no cost and does'nt take as long as they say.
They are green?!? usualy when people have problems with the xbox 360 hardware, the lights turn red. This xbox 360 may have a birth defect... Best thing to do is call 1800-4my-xbox. Talk to a representative about sending your xbox in, ONLY if you have not voided the warranty. If so, you will most likely have to buy a new xbox or new motherboard for it.
Also try changing your video settings to tv instead of hd, or hd if it is plugged into a hd tv. You might have toggled the HD switch on the video/audio chords.
Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the
programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen -
most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on
screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.
I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.
So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.
I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??
When playing on HDTV's i think you have to have the HD Scart, these are £19.99 in Game and Gamestation. however i have seen them cheaper in PC World i think they where £14.99 (could have been cheaper).
I would try purchasing these connections because the standard connections are only made for normal TV's
there shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component
Use the following colours into your tv:-
Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs.
Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings
