    Hi, I'm looking to finally sort myself out with a new flat panel tv in the next couple of months. I'm looking to try and be as future proof as possible - HiDef, Freeview, HDMI, etc.

    To be honest, I have been looking at LCD (I expect mutterings of discontent here - considering the forum I'm posting in ;) ). The reason for this was I've read alot of warnings about screen burn with video games and tv with banners e.g. most SKY programs, even with modern plasmas.

    However, the new Pioneer (436XDE) looks absolutely great! Also I've heard that fast moving images are generally much better on Plasma and I tend to watch lots of sport.

    What do you think about the games console and banner issue with Plasmas?

    It can be an issue, but it seems to be fairly uncommon nowadays.
    But to be absolutely truthful a couple of people have had problems recently, mainly with the Cbeebies logo.
    Static images are the problem, not gaming, as such.
    I have not seen a hint of image retention, let alone screen burn on my Hitachi 7200.
    The Pannys are supposed to be very good too.
    The consensus seems to be that even hours of static logos can be ok, as long as contrast and brightness are turned down from the stupid default settings.
    There is quite a lot of discussion to be found in this forum, if you do a search :smashin:
