    Ok so I finally managed to output my PC video to my Pana TH50PZ800 via a DVI to HDMI Cable.

    Now I can surf and play PC games and output it to my Pana Plasma.

    MY question is a bit silly but I worry alot about these things and want to make sure its safe.

    Can I play pc games on my Plasma without worrying about image burn in or image retention with the TH50PZ800????

    Many PC games have static mini maps or UI Interface icons on the screen for hours at a time... Can this damage my TV such as Burn in or retention?

    I just want to be sure B4 I log 4 hours of straight PC time on my Plasma a ruin it or something.
    If anybody can chime in on this one with advice it would be grtealy appreciated !

    Cheers and thanks !

    Take a break every couple of hours and display a normal channel. This will wash away any image retention.
