Last night for the first time in a long time because we had company, I was forced to sit close to the screen. To my horror I noticed a black pixel in the middle of the image. My mind flashed back to the power outages we'd had mid-movie earlier in the week. When we paused the movie for popcorn distribution I went right up to the screen. There, perfectly squished onto a single pixel, was a dead bug. A gentle wipe with a tissue and my HT1000 returned to perfection.
