I don't know if this is related and/or the same problem but recently all my
analog recordings looks bluish, maybe blue and red have been swaped or

This is on a epia frontend.

Dvb recordings looks fine, it's only the analog mpeg4 recordings that have
this problem, and the preview image in watch recordings screen looks fine.
