Connected to my TV with HDMI the Raspberry Pi swaps the Blue and Red channels - which gives me a nice purple 'gooseberry' logo but makes watching movies a little surreal.

This happens even with the command prompt. Is my HW faulty or is there some setting I missed?

TV is a no-name 720p LCD, in an NTSC country.

Is it possible your HDMI cable has them swapped over? –  John La Rooy Feb 26 '13 at 0:16
Same cable + same TV works with cable box –  Martin Beckett Feb 26 '13 at 2:45
