    I'm interested in RPTV too and the Toshs look good but there are mixed feelings here and Toshiba's own tech support told me that they don't recommend using games consoles.

    Is this true of all RPTV? Thomson's 44" has a preset picture setting called "Game" I believe - do they have some anti screen burn device?

    Finally, on screen burn, is it not possible for a savvy manufacturer to build a small digital device sitting inline, say built into a scart plug that allows you to create "blur" boxes on screen of a user defined size and position..... these could then look like FBI face blurs and defeat the screen burning effects of pesky logos.

    I know it's a pretty tricky gadget to produce and may create some noise but for consoles/sports channels any degradation in picture would surely be acceptable to avoid screen burn.

    Anyway, that aside, do Thomson condone use of games consoles with their RPTVs?

    I really dont think you need to worry about screen burn.

    Unless of course your gonna leave you set on 24 hours a day.

    I have only ever seen screen burn on a green screen monitor which was years old and was on 24/7 for years.

    I've had a Tosh RPTV for over eighteen months and it gets used with a PS2 and an X-BOX on a regular basis and there is no sign of screen burn.

    Buy the RPTV
    Buy a copy of "Avia Home Theater Calibration DVD"
    Calibrate TV's contrast/brightness/colour to accurate levels.

    No screen burn in :D

    Brilliant! you mean all these screen burn fears are unfounded? Yippee.

    I would have run any console at reduced levels anyway but I'm pleased, johndon that you've had no probs.

    Great!thanks guys - I can now go back to BIG screen shopping :)
