Also about the orbitor mode or what ever the pixel shift mode is called. What is the setting recomended here?
The reflection and glare is a non issue for me...The anti-glare on this TV is very well done. That is coming from a past LCD user too. I think you'll be surprised at how well it handles it. Obviously you will get some but I have a feeling it will be less than you think.

It has 105 total hours on it, all of it with the break in dvd images.
I wish I could take a pic of it but i don't have a camera handy.
I'm just hoping its just something small , like it needs a few more hours or at worst a defective set because I really love the picture on this tv.
It isn't defective, my Z80 is the same way. Heck, it can last all day after but an hour's worth of gaming on the 360. I can only see it on a no signal black screen though and certainly not 10 ft away under normal TV viewing situations. My TV is less than a month old and has also been through the break in slideshow as well.
As you run stretched SD or HDTV content it will go away, sometimes sooner or sometimes later depending on what it was. The gases in the screen need time to relax supposedly.
Trust me, it is freaking me out as well...Especially when I still see it 24 hours later, however it does
dissipate because the imagery isn't as refined as it was originally and is more of a blob since it is slowly going away. I've been learning to not worry about it and enjoy the set.
BTW, getting back to an earlier post. I too put my 46 inch Z80 on the included stand alone, getting it on the actual TV stand though required my 98lbs 5ft 5 wife to 'nudge' it on top however as I lifted it. There was no way she could even lift a finger to it.
I still don't know how I did it. The sucker was heavy but more delicate and awkward which was the real problem. I'm 6'1 but only 180lbs and certainly no muscle head. heh.
