I may be the last to know as it may already be common knowledge, but.... I was told a few days ago from a very reliable source that dead pixels within Sony LCD panels, can be turned off within their software. The impression I was given was that it's not something sony want to be openly known. Is this right or am I just daft? The person who told me would have no reason to tell me a mistruth, and it would be the answer to LCD pixel problems (I assume)! What say you? LCD technology is not perfect, so this has got to be the best 'solution' to date that I've heard of anyway.
