I was watching Cowboys and Aliens tonight and just had an odd glitch in the color. Not sure how to describe it so I took a video of it. I've only seen it happen one other time in one of the Indiana Jones blurays. Each time it was an outside daylight scene. Any idea what this is, whats causing it and if its fixable?

Interesting problem. I would recommend turning off hardware acceleration and trying the scene over again. Could just be where the driver software or hardware has misidentified something and is having the equivalent of a brain fart in decoding it. May be something that's addressable through future driver releases.

Consequently, have you updated your graphic's card's drivers recently? If not, give that a shot. Also, if there's any updates available for the player software you're viewing your Blu-Rays with, update that as well.

AMD drivers:

May also be a dynamic contrast / brightness issue. If you're graphics hardware or TV has any sort of technology designed to expand the color palette artificially, or dynamically adjust screen brightness, you could have found a few scenes that it doesn't work properly with. I'm just speculating here though. I know the AMD dynamic brightness drives me batty when it's enabled, whether I'm watching movies or not.
