    I haven't been able to set up my new th37pw7b yet, (building works) but I was a bit worried by a mate who said I should be careful about watching too much 4:3 material on the screen (especially at the beginning) because of screen burn and getting bands down the sides. Is this a problem and if so should I try to stretch the image on the screen to avoid it?

    All jealous mates try to tell you you've bought a problem. This is not really an issue on a Panasonic screen, they have worked hard to make them robust. You have to take the mickey to damage them, be sensible, but relax.

    Thanks, I'm reassured. I still watch mostly terrestrial TV which will now be via the freeview box.

    You can even out the brightness across the screen BTW by changing the brightness level of the side bars to match the brightness level of the picture area on these :)
