Here's my second problem and worse than the first. It's taken me a few weeks to test this set in every way. I have all HDMI. Port one is my connection from DRV and TV provider. Port two have my new Panasonic blye ray player. The following problem happens during TV shows, renting a movie from my provider and watching DVD's.
During various dark scenes, night times, dimly lit rooms etc, anything that's either black or very dark gets covered in a very grainy/snowy appearance. In fact it's so thick you can't make out the underlining features. When I look at the TV closely you can see what looks like a pattern of some sort that looks like it's almost on top of and away from the picture. Looks like tiny little squares. Very strange. Seeing this grainy look ruins the scene and goes away once the entire scene changes. Never happens during bright environments. I was looking at the blue ray Dirty Hairy the other day and there is this forest scene during the night time. The picture was wall to wall grain. It was just terrible. All you could see was DH running through the middle of the forest and the surrrounding trees were coverered in this grainy texture. The moment the scene changes it's back to normal pic. I talked to the manager from the store that I bought it from and he tried to tell me I was being PICKY and that no one else has called in with these problems. I told hiim so what, doesn't mean I can't have the one TV that has a defect. Get this......offerd me to bring it back and buy a more expensive Samsung model.
