Question on strange OM-1 Video Output Colors

I've recently purchased an OM-1 and having been playing with it.  One thing I tend to do with my camera is to use it as a webcam for work when it's not doing anything else.

However, when I tried to setup the camera as a webcam, I noticed that the video output when the dial is set to video is showing odd colors.  The video image displayed on the camera screen looks normal, it's just the HDMI output that looks odd and then only when it's set to video.

I didn't see anything obvious in the settings that might be effecting this, so I was hoping that someone else could point out what I'm doing wrong.

Here's a shot of what I'm seeing:

Blues are showing as black.  Reds are showing as magenta.  Yellows are greenish.

If I change the dial to aperture mode, I see the correct colors:

Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated.
