I am noticing when playing, I am running composite 1080i and it seems to be flashing like... a green bar horizontally through areas in the picture...

What's going on? It almost seems like screen tearing.

i think you are confused, because composite cable can only deliver 480i. To get HD, you need either a component cable or HDMI cable. Your color problem could be the cables not connected properly in the right holes.

Here's what I want you to do: anything you own that you're using composite cables with right now, I want you to see if they can connect to your set by way of HDMI cables. If it can, I want you to go to one of those not-quite-dollar store thrift shops and find yourself some $5 HDMI cables. The differences between extremely expensive cables and dirt cheap cables is negligible. Then I want you to go home and hook up everything with your new HDMI cables. Afterwards, set all your devices to output to 1080p. Not 1080i. 1080i displays an image as a two-step process that happens almost instantaneously whereas 1080p is constantly showing a single stream of imagery. This will give you the absolute best picture your tv can produce (short of a good calibration- I suggest googling calibration settings for your tvs model number).

Right now I'm at a lack of understanding as to how you even managed to produce any image at all using composite cables since they aren't rated for anything over 480i as far as I know.
