Has anyone noticed when a solid color screen is displayed, there appears to be a line down
the middle of the TV vertically? Not like a black line, but a definite point at twhich the
brightness changes. It looks as though the tv is made out of two panels pushed
together and one side is slightly brighter than the other.

My LC-45GX6U seems to have problems correctly synchronizing its HDMI input upon power up, when connected to my HD TiVo (HR10-250). Most of the time when I power up, the screen has a washed out purple cast to it. It looks EXACTLY like the Menu/HDMI Setup/Signal Type has been set to "RGB" by mistake (the signal type coming from the HR10-250 is YCbCr=4:4:4). Even if you force the Signal Type to "YCbCr=4:4:4" instead of "Auto", it still looks as if "RGB" has been selected. If you do *any* of the following things after power up, the LC-45GX6U screen synchronizes up, and looks great:
* Make any change to the HDMI Setup Signal Type, then set it to either "Auto" or "YCbCr=4:4:4"
* Make any change to the HDMI Setup Color Matrix setting
* Make any change to the HDMI Setup Dynamic Range setting
* Do anything at the HD TiVo box that forces the LC-45GX6U to resync, such as change output from 1080i to 720p, and then back to 1080i, or even change from "Panel" to "Full" mode (which briefly shuts off video output).
This is really wierd! It's as if some firmware bug in the LC-45GX6U causes it to always synch/switch its HDMI input upon power up in "RGB" mode for "Signal Type" and then stay that way until the HDMI input parameters are altered using the remote, or until the source interrupts/changes its HDMI output to it to cause the LC-45GX6U HDMI input to resynch.
I guess I could have my programmable remote do some funky macro gyrations to cause a resync, but yechh!!!

I am overall very pleased with all aspect of the TV. It is clean loking, slim (certainly compared to my Sony 27 inch trinitron), and has beautiful picture. I picked up a HD box with DVR from Comcast Philadelphia (they claimed not to have cable cards) today and plan to watch the game seven tonight. GO YANKEES!!

Yes, I see the exact same thing on my monitor. I can only notice it on a totally solid mid-color (not white or black) and when I look at it from an oblique viewing angle...it's a slight bright stripe down the middle. I noticed it during Monday Night Football when they would show the overhead view of the green field turf from off to the side.
It's definitely very subtle and impossible to see with non-solid colors, but it's there.

I wonder if your 'ghosting' or 'smearing' is a software-related problem. Have you tried some PC games at 1920 x 1080....or even 1280 x 768?
As far as my set goes.....I haven't noticed a line down the middle, nor any dead pixels. I guess I got lucky.
