The reason I ask is because for the past four years I have owned a Tosh 40" Rear Pro CRT (40WH08B) and I remember back then people saying that they were very suspect to screen burn (more so than a srandard CRT). In those four years there hasn't been a hint of screen burn and that's from an ex-display model! Any ex-RP owners out there? Are Plasmas more suspect that CRT RPs? However, my viewing habits are mainly the regular (logo free) terrestrial digital channels and rarely any Sky, music or kids channels. Although my nephews give it agood hammering during the school hols....Kids channels and xbox all day! But I do watch a lot of 4:3 music DVDs (some run for 2hrs or more) and most of my DVD fims are in 2.35:1 (obviously as it's still the most popular aspect ratio for Hollywood films) which I watch all in OAR (any other 'stretchy/smart' mode makes me wince!). Some xbox games in 4:3 have been known to go on for several hours too! I'm in the market for a new TV, probably the Pan 42PV500 and i've read all about the '200 hrs breaking in' period and you should use full screen all ARs. I'm prepared to do so during this period but no way indefinatley...It's OAR or nothing for me. Do you all watch in OAR after the inital running in period is over and have you experienced any burn issues because of this? This is the only thing that's holding me back in purchasing, as it was four years ago for a while.
