I was watching Netflix on my TV with my other monitor connected to the computer, and all of a sudden the TV screen turned red and the monitor turned green and the audio started making really weird sounds. It stopped after about 10 seconds and the computer simply went back to what it was doing before. The computer is working just fine now but I would like to nip this in the bud if the problem could grow.

Is the television a CRT/Tube or projection?  A failing Blue could cause the issue.

 

Other possible issue would be video card related, depending if you're using HDMI for both video and sound.  The problem in this case may be as simple as a driver update or as complex as replacing the video card.

 

Most likely the stream was briefly corrupted and you should be fine.

I am using HDMI for video, a auxiliary cord connected to separate speakers, and the monitor was connected through a display cable that comes with most monitors. They're three different connections, so I would think it has something to do with the computer. It wasn't just the stream that was corrupted though, the monitor that was only displaying the desktop turned red at the same time the TV turned green (or vise versa, I don't remember which was which).
