    There's something puzzling me with my plasma. I'm currently in the middle of watching the premiership on ITV....about 1 inch down from the top and about 10 inches in from the top right hand side there are 3 triangular pixel's in a bright green color. They look as though they are not fireing correctly...the strange thing is its only on ITV. Every other channel is fine. When I turn the chanel back to ITV it disappears for about 1 or 2 mins then they return in the exact same place...as I said, every other channel is fine. Am I seeing things or what ? Its very strange and puzzling.

    Any thoughts ?

    Though I have no idea what's causing the problem, I get the same. I watched the Premiership via Sky and noticed that BACKUP cleared it until it re-showed after the adverts.

    I've only had my PW6 up-and-running for a couple of weeks but I've noticed that in general, ITV is ... well, not brilliant - at least via Sky feed.

    Cheers,

    Hmm dunno whats up with that but i noticed it too with my toshiba CRT during the premiership, so i guess its not a plasma only thing... are they trying to advertise dots to us subliminally?

    Thanks for the reply's guys, I thought I was going round the twist. I'm glad someone else noticed this.

    Thing is though, what the hell is it ?

    I've seen the dead pixels a few times when watching this program - I seem to remember it was during the adverts (a small cluster of dead pixels smack in the middle of the image a few rows down from the top of the screen) and as you say switching channels confirms its the broadcast.

    I guess an email to ITV is on the cards for an explanation.

    Hi Joe, glad to hear your thoughts mate.

    Yes I agree. An email asking this question is a good idea.

    OK - I'm about a week behind on my in-box (and I've still not started on the web site) so I'm assuming your going to mail them :)
