    In a plasma say you are watching SKY Sports, a footy game, the SKy Sports Logo will be there for ages 50 minutes or so then you get and ad. How much chance iss there of a screen burn, and also say when you are watching BBC news, there BBC indent, whats the chance of getting a screen burn when watching the same channel for an hour?

    Not much chance with modern plasmas IMO.

    Depends what plasma it is, most are reasonably good.
    I had cbeebies on my PV500 for 7.5 hours after only 50 hours run in, with no probs.
    It is always best to be careful for the first 200 hours though.

    On a modern one, like the Samsung 42" HD Ready One, PV500 or the Hitachi 42PD7200, or the JVC one I'm on about, thats okay, I was getting scared I wont be able to watch a program for too long, or I had to change the channels constantly.

    basically, don't go to bed with a DVD menu on the screen and all will be well.
