    Specifically with games. There have always been dire warnings about using console games on RPTVs and LCD projectors due to static HUDs in some games burning after images into the screens. As DLP is a totally different technology, is this still an issue? Is it even still an issue with newer LCD projectors?

    Neither LCD projectors nor DLP projectors suffer from burn in of any type.

    Agreed. LCDs have never suffered from this - only phosphor-based devices (which includes CRT and Plasma) are prone.

    It has been suggested that, in the very long term, LCD projectors (but not a direct view LCD) might just begin to show signs - but the causes are very different and seemingly less likely to actually arise.
