By the way, his samsung has some bad geometry probs in 16:9 most notably, the picture looks like it is bowed inward(curved towards the center, on the horizontal axis).
I just like it because it's like an LED for 16:9 mode, I just don't understand how it drives some people crazy when every other LED on their stuff does not... it just bothers me absoluetely none. The only thing that does bother me is it shows me how much divergence there is on my TV, which would be helpful for fixing it, except only the right side of my TV is divergent. If you see a red dot, a green dot, and a blue dot instead of a white dot that means that the color is not converging, at least in this area.
If it bothers you a lot you can use the service menu to expand the image until the dot is overscanned... I believe that this pixel should be overscanned, I just don't like that much overscan. I think that is why it's there, becuase they probably try to overscan it on most sets but a few slip through where it is visible.
Samsung I used to know the service menu code for, but if he could find it, he could definately fix it, but be sure to know what you are doing and record all initial variables.
