I bought one of the first 46XBR2's made when they were released last Fall. The build date on mine is 8/06. I noticed the clouding on blank inputs right off the bat but never gave it a second thought as it has never bothered me during viewing and I refused to turn into one of those "green blob SXRD owners" who moan about green blobs on blank inputs. I watch TV, not blank inputs. Anyway, I found this forum yesterday and now realize that the clouding is a widespread problem. I went home last night and turned the light sensor on and it did eliminate 100% of the clouds but it makes the picture unacceptably dark to me so I shut it back off. I did re-examine my clouds and I'm pretty sure that they are not as bad as they were when I first got the TV. I used to notice them easily and last night I really had to hunt and use my peripheral vision to find them. Could this be a break-in issue??????? I've put a fair number of hours on this set since getting it last August including hi-def cable, Toshiba HD-DVD, and xbox360.
