I just bought a new 2,3 ghz Mac Mini 3 days ago to use as a mediacenter.

I have it set up using my Phillips Tv as screen with a HDMI cable.
Audio is toslink to my amp.
I have a eyetv hybrid connected and a belkin usb hub with severel WD disk.

My problem is that suddenly the display turns green for a couple of seconds
and after that everything on the screen is tinted green.
Sometimes after a while it turns itself back to the right colours again.

There is no consistency in when it does this, and again no consistency in
when it turns itself back again.

The funny thing (as i see it) is that i had a Mac Mini mid 2009 connected
exactly as i have setup the new Mac Mini. And everything worked fine.

I run sabnzbd, air video server, eyetv 3 and XBMC on it. There is aswell
a python script that lauches sickbeard on startup running.

Can anybody please help me to what the problem is???

It might be a problem with your video card. Since you just got it, I'd take it back to the Apple Stoee.

Would that show on a hardware test???

I did one of those and it didn't show any errors....

Sometimes. Hardware test won't always show issues. I've had defective RAM pass in the hardware test, but the computer crashes if it's installed, worked fine after removal.

I have had a similar problem with a bad HDMI cable. If you have another one, swap it out.
