I have recently been noticing white or blue dots that appear very quickly on screen during playback of movies on my PS3. Looking into it, I'm hearing about "sparklies," and I've switched cables to see if that would fix things.
My question is this: I've noticed that on some movies, if I freeze the film and then slowly go back or forward, I cannot see the white specks or dots. Also, these dots are not in the same place if I go back and replay the scene.
Then there are other films where if I freeze and go back or forward frame by frame, the dots (white or blue) are actually in the same place and present on the single frame.
So, am I right to think that these are two different things, or could an hdmi sparklies problem actually affect a certain pixel in a certain frame?
