Finally I have found someone with the same problem I have!
Have you tried to press the <G> key while in liveTV? In my case I can 
get the picture ok but it does not stick. If I close mythtv after 
pressing G and getting the  picture ok then mplayer works ok.
So somehow the adjustment is transfer to the ivtv module, however if you 
change channels after pressing the G key and having the picture ok, when 
you go to the new selected channel the color is wrong again. Seems that 
the changes are not change in the tables and whenever mythtv reads it 
get the same old values.? I wonder if there is a problem with permissions.
Let's keep in touch and see if you can solve the proble,
