Same disclaimer as before: I'm not a shutter bug, don't snap shots often and I don't own a regular or digital camera (or know anybody crazy enough to trust me with his/her pricey photo gear). The first picture was taken with a Mini-DV camera, captured digitally as TIFF files and the downconverted to JPEG; all pics after that are digital captures. Unless noted you should assume the pictures from the images of the 747i look much sharper and clearer in person than they do here.
The good news first: THE "EGGS" ARE GONE!
I was watching TV late into this morning around 2:30AM, changing channels and inputs in complete darkness and at no time could I see the infamous "eggs." I still have minor light leakage on all four corners of the set though, but its minimal and unnoticed with 90% of material I've viewed on the set. I was also tweaking like mad the settings for contrast and brightness though, but not radically enough to hide the "eggs" in case they're still here. Since hooking up the TV on Sunday I estimate its been on for a little less than 40 hours, so maybe the 747i just needs breaking in for a few days to get the "eggs" under control.
Comparing a 1080i high-def picture to its 480p DVD counterpart on the same system (XBox 360 w/HD-DVD add-on):
"American Gangster" (HD-DVD / DVD):
"An American Werewolf in London" (HD-DVD / DVD):
Blu-ray movies (1080p/24 from PS3) "Ratatoille" and "Pan's Labyrinth":
Picture-in-Picture (1080p PS3 / 1080i cable):
