LED TV green screen

We finally bought a new LED HDTV, and now it seems to not be compatible with our cable box. We get a green screen every now and then. We've tried both an HDMI hookup and a component cable hookup. Could it be time for a new box?

I'm assuming an HD box, since we get HD channels. We have the HDMI hookup in the back. It's grey with the black screen.

Re: LED TV green screen

is it a motorola box?  If so turn off the box leave the tv on and press the menu button.  In there make sure you have the output set to 1080 or native.
