If warm2 does give whites a pinkish hue, why is it universally recommended for the PN7000/8000? Is there an advantage for whites to have the pinkish hue for this particular panel? I have the PN59D7000, by the way.
Like Dsskid said, you should be able to eliminate this pinking by reducing contrast. Do you still see it with default movide mode settings (remove the calibration you have entered)? This is not normal for any mode with contrast at 95 or less. My PN59D7000 could even go above 95 in contrast without pinking on the contrast test pattern (before Samsung messed with my main board).
NOTE: If you are going to use Standard color tone, then you cannot benefit
from Chad B's calibration and you should remove it (at least the 2 and 10pt grayscale, you can use the custom color if you like). That calibration is only valid for movie mode with warm 2.

Sounds like it could be normal for broadcast TV - sometimes they have missing pixels at the screen edge(s) which appear as white lines. You might be able to clip it off with the image position control. If you see this on DVD/bluray, you may have some other problem.

I ask because I'm experimenting with the Plex app
that's just in development. I love it, except the blacks go weak and the picture looks 'foggy' on my 59D8000.
This sounds like a black level mismatch between your TV and the app. Can you select between "Low" and "Normal" on the TV? If so, then use the one that looks correct.
