    RPTV Burn In is a thorn in the eye!

    What if we could watch 4:3 TV and play games on our 16:9 RPTV without burn....

    The 3:4 image could pan slowly left and right in the 16:9 area. I mean so slowly that the mind would not see it. Maybe 20 minutes to do a cycle.

    That way we would only have to worry about horizontal line burn in.

    Worth a try? :rolleyes:

    Ok, so I guess I won't get my million :smoke:

    Later
    Alex.

    Alex,

    Sorry to put a dampener on your excellent idea, but don't RPTV's do something like this already?

    My 9 year old 46" Phillips (4x3 of course) shifts the picture slightly every 20 mins to prevent screen burn.

    I assume all current models do it (unless you know different!).

    Regards.

    Thanks,

    Slightly will not do the trick with Window Box or Letter Box wear. And my solution would just smuge the burn.

    The real solution is Low Contrast/Brightness settings, and it still looks great in daytime, I just did the test at the store.

    Thanks again
    Alex.
