The IR issues some are seeing must be due to slight differences in voltage between these sets.
Could be. I think it's been an issue since I got the set, starting with the logo of the application used to run "the slides", for a little bit. Something changed from when I first fired them up (no IR), and when I subsequently fired them up (some IR). I stopped doing them after a few hours, but already there was some funniness going on. Same area.
Took a few months before I noticed the early incarnation of what I'm seeing currently, seemed like it went away pretty quickly after it appeared, say an hour or so. And now past the 2000 hour mark, it seems to maybe not go away at all, or at least not completely, and certainly not very quickly.
(Going to try the Disney WOW disc again tonight and see if it rids the tv of the bit of it I was still seeing hours later during one of the scenes of a movie I was watching last night.)
Too late for Panasonic, but maybe Geek Squad can do something about it (big wink). Wonder how much longer before those Samsung 8500s start becoming scarce...
