I believe the trick is to watch with lower contrast and sharpness level. That has somehow helped me.
(You had 48 hours between your posts to all that?)
I noticed this over 48 hours ago and have been tackling the issue since. Yes, I've tried the Scroll Bar twice, plus playing the multi-colored DVD loop, also ran the Snowy Noise and watched 'Up' twice. It didn't really work but I think I should tone down the picture a bit like you've mentioned and just enjoy the TV, and (hopefully) let it disappear in time. My initial settings were pretty low -- using THX mode (57 Contrast/56 Brightness) and nothing has changed.

You're right, but I can spot it like a watermark from the movie 'UP' -- on the scene when they got to Paradise Falls where the skies had multiple-colored shades (much like the DVD loop); but only IF I look for it otherwise the chances of seeing it is slim to almost none. It's kind of like a 1% chance to even seeing it if one doesn't know, and yes I know I'm being anal about it! I guess from a psychological standpoint, when you know it's there you tend to look for it to make sure that it doesn't start to spread like cancer. Maybe I am freaking out a bit.

At least the HD channels could try to fade in fade out their logos from solid to transparent.Or make it spin gently once in every 15 to 20 secs.
But i have decided not to see much of cable tv using my plasma tv.instead use to watch BD movies in 1080p.
Channel logos are okay, I get them but as soon as I started watching something else they go away, but the one I have now is from my receiver. When I bring up the OSD menu, a big brand name logo is splashed dimly across the black screen, and another brightly lit smaller name logo on the upper middle-right screen; that was the one that got retained. I think I got it while I was setting up Audyssey for my 5.1 speakers which took over 30 minutes to complete. I bought the TV, Receiver and Speakers at the same time but shipped separately.
