Hi we got our brand new 360 box on 17th of Dec. For the last 4 days the TV colours have been horrible! Mega saturation. Isn’t the TV and doesn’t happen on Netflix or Prime. If re boot fixes for an hour or so. Bought new HDMI cable and still same issue
Hi thanks for getting to me so quick. so it’s as if the Virgin 360 box is stuck on high contrast. A factory re set has done nothing. all channels , apart from streaming apps. Even viewing the TV guide it is painful to look at as the contrast is so off. I have done a hard reset on the TV it’s self and this is fine when not using the Virgin 360 box
Can you post a picture of the problem? It may help.
What is mysterious here - you've said that streaming apps aren't affected, but these use the same HDMI output to your TV. Hence my asking whether OnDemand programmes (as opposed to streaming apps) are ok. That would be another alternative video source.

Ok so this photo is of the TV channel, my husband has just a tried to watch something on prime and he said that is also massively contrasted , maybe the show I had on Netflix just didn’t seem that bad , photo also to show prime as highly contrasted

An addition to my previous post. So today i have watched several channels, BBC etc and all were fine. I then watched something on the 360 Amazon prime app which again was in hdr.
When i finished watching this and switched back to BBC, the picture was terrible. Switched back to Amazon prime and the picture remained dreadful.
I then switched to Amazon prime app on my Google Chromecast with TV and the picture was perfect. See picture below showing a comparison of TV picture.
Have turned TV and 360 box on and off several times and the TV picture from 360 box is stuck at the horrible over saturated look on normal channels as well as Amazon prime.
Have also tried recordings that were previously perfect and they are now showing the same distorted colouring.
I have just unplugged 360 box and left it unplugged for a few minutes. When i restarted it colour in all things was back to normal.
Went to Amazon prime app again, selected Jack Ryan which is in hdr. Started watching it and then thought i would try to adjust sound settings that changed in 4.39 update. Hit home button on remote to go to 360 settings and menu was back to being discoloured and bbc which had been playing was also discoloured.
Went back to Amazon prime app, menu all distorted, navigated back to jack Ryan and hit resume and the picture went back to normal.
This time rather than hit home button, i hit the back button and this took me back to the prime menus which were back to being properly coloured.
I repeated these steps with another hdr movie and the same thing happened.
Then i selected a non hdr show and when watching it, hit the home button and this time the 360 settings menus stayed the right colour.
It would appear this issue happens when you leave an Amazon prime hdr show using the home button rather than backing out of it back to prime menu.
