2 Xbox One questions for a newbie....

  • I am new to this world ... so PLEASE if these are stupid questions give an Old guy a break :)

    I have just purchased an Xbox one primarily for the entertainment features and I have setup the XboxOne but I have three questions that I hope I can get some guidance. 

    1. When I set the Xbox up to use a separate HDMI port on the Yamaha receiver all works great.  If I set up my XBOX as pass though device like the instructions advise the sound from the TV works and I can see the TV, but the picture on the TV displays with a green cast.  I have checked all cables  and replaced the cable that goes between the Xbox and the TV but nothing changes.  If move the cable the goes into the Xbox back to the TV the green cast goes away.  - Any suggestions??

    2. If I can fix the Green cast and decide to configure the Xbox as a pass though device, do I need to turn the Xbox on to watch TV??  I am asking because my wife may will not want to bother with the Xbox when I am not home and I would love to have the TV work without the Xbox

    3. I have DirecTv and I was curious how the DVR is controlled by the Xbox?   I am asking because my Xbox needs be in a different room than the  DVR and if the pass though works, I am tying to understand if I will need some kind of IR blaster ?

    thanks for any help, guidance or suggestions on these three questions would really be appreciated!!!
