Have you tried checking for a firmware update? I haven't bothered to hook mine up to my network yet, but I will tonight to see if there is one available. Then I'll cross my fingers and hope for a miracle fix!
I too am hoping that a firmware update will fix the issue. Considering that this seems to be what the Dynamic Contrast setting would do and we all have ours to 'off', you'd think this wouldn't be happening and that it would be fixable.
However, I think the TV is rather cheap for its size (59" in my case), picture quality and 3d capability, so I'm willing to live with a few bugs. I might venture up 200 or 300 dollars to see if perhaps the 6500 is spared from these issues, but beyond that--paying over $2,000 for a flat-panel--isn't in the cards for me. I plan on buying a front-projection system in the next 2 years, and that's where the big TV money is going.
