UN32EH4000 questions

This is actually my first TV, as my computer has served all my media purposes up to this point. I pretty much love it right out of the box, I just have a few questions on some minor things I can't figure out.

When I have it on mute, there's a floating mute box that never leaves the screen until it's unmuted. Sometimes I like to keep a game on mute and hope there's a way to get rid of this.

If I'm watching something from media/USB mode and want to pause it and switch to TV (I have just an antenna right now), and go back to media, it resets what I was watching. I'm hoping there's a way to keep it where I left off somehow. I'm also wondering if there's any way to change the display of the files on my USB stick. Some of the files have very long file names and it takes forever for the TV to auto scroll through a long title.

I think that's about it for now. I'm already itching to bump up to 40" but I'd like to play with this for a while. Any help/tips appreciated.

Answer
I use a few workarounds.

I turn down the volume to its lowest.
I set the audio output to external.

May be other ways.

Hmm

Surprised there's not a way to turn off that mute icon, even worse that it floats around. Is this a hallmark of all recent Samsung TV's or just this model? Hope that's not on the 40" 1080 LED that I will most likely upgrade too at some point. Really though being able to pause media, going into a different mode, then returning to media where you left off is what's most important. Still hope there's some way around that.

I guess this would also be a good thread to ask if anyone has a good calibration guide? I've never calibrated a screen before, to me it looks good but I also haven't developed an eye for this yet as I'm just happy to be watching stuff on something bigger and crisper than my few year old Samsung 23" syncmaster monitor. The only issue I've come across is sometimes I'll notice it get a little brighter or dimmer within the scene. I'm guessing its a setting but again I've only had this 24 hours so far.

I turned that mute icon off.

But I cheated.
