LN46B640 Flickering white dots sometime/ pixel problems?

Hello All,

I just received a new Samsung Ln46B640 a week ago and after spending some time playing around with the TV I have a couple of questions/ concerns and wondered if anyone else was having these issues, had a way to correct them or if i should just return the tv.

Here are my concerns:

1) Sometimes when watching HD programs with dark backgrounds ie, SNL skits with real dark and real light scenes at the same time the black or dark parts of the screen will have white dots flashing almost like snow. The pixels are not always the same so I do not think/hope it is not bad pixels.

2) Sometimes when watching something like a 60 Minutes interview I will notice a small area (4 pixels) of discoloration that is always the same in a certain shot. However, the same area will be fine in a different shot or a different show. Is it possible this is just a camera issue?

My setup is the LN46B40 hooked up to a Comcast Scientific Atlantic cable box via hdmi. I have set the cable box to the proper HD outputs.

I would love to hear anyone's opinions or suggestions.

Thanks in advance!
