I have a Panasonic 65VT50. With the pixel orbiter turned off and Size 2 (no over-scan 1:1 Pixel mapping.) I have some dead space on the top and bottom that look like 5 or 6 rows of dead pixels. I made sure to check it with the over-scan test on the Disney WOW Blu ray and everything seems perfect. I figure it's just from manufacturing where they apply the wires and phosphors to the screen in longer sheets of glass and this is a buffer area where they cut the large sheets into TV size sheets of glass. If you are concerned with this as I was put an over-scan pattern on it.
The Disney WOW Disc has a black and white dashed line 1 pixel thick with mark offs for FULL, 1%, 2%, 3% and so on. Very easy to see what the over-scan is.
With 1:1 pixel mapping, if there were actually rows of dead pixels the FULL dashed line would be off the edge of the screen. As it is, it is right on the very edge like it should be. Hope this helps.
