Potentially fix dead pixels via a software solution

Instant Epilepsy for all...

Definately should be a warning on this like the ones in the front of video games.

Thanks, I think this could be really helpful... yet to see if it'll work though.

Actually, people with photo sensitive epilepsy are affected by the overall refresh rate rather than what happens on the screen. Anything with a refresh rate between 45 and 75 Hz can trigger a seizure. (Hence I only use LCD/TFT monitors and have a 100Hz TV)

Having suffered from this for the past 17 years and dealt with by numerous consultants, those warnings given out are purely to cover the manufacturers backs, especially in countries where you can sue for anything at the drop of a hat.
