    I have one window that shows the color incorrectly. All 4 windows were set up identically and i cannot find any differences in settings.. I have not mapped my display to the proper channels yet. Any suggestions on where to look for the issue that is causing this?

    p.s.. Also, the middle letter of the JOY sign does the same thing

    Channel being off might be a possibility.. did not know that could effect the color shown in the preview display

    It will absolutely affect what shows in the preview, especially when effects are trying to overwrite each other (overlapping channels). You can use check sequence on the menu to see if this is occurring.

    Map them properly and the problem should disappear instantly :)

    The other thing to check is in Tools, check sequence... That should tell you some of what is happening.
