Maxent MX - 42X3 Plasma COLOR Issues

I recently bought the Maxent plasma at Costco for the really nice price of $1999 minus the $300 discount. I am running a Hughes DirecTV HD Receiver Model HIRD - E86. I am running the Components into the unit and everything looks wonderful. Very crisp and clean picture. It is the 1080i setting. I also have a DVR running into the AV1 input. That looks pretty good too. The one issue I am having a lot of trouble with is the color settings from the HD receiver to the Plasma. The color is horrible. I have tried adjusting the panel and can't seem to get it correct. What is strange is that the DVR feed color into my AV1 is fine. Does anyone have any advice? Is it my HD receiver or is it the Maxent plasma limitations for HD 1080i feed?
