I took out the protect plus insurance with John Lewis works out at less than £30 a year it's a no brainerFinally got myself sorted with one from John Lewis.
My first OLED. I have been umming and arring about the £140 cover for burn in as we watch a fair amount of Cbeebies HOWEVER (before everyone says about image burn):
The morning logo: Isn't translucent. However it changes every 20 seconds for 10-12 seconds.
The daytime logo: is translucent. I can't remember if it changes but will watch and report back.
The evening logo: is translucent. It also changes every 20 seconds for 10-12 seconds.
We watch it for maybe up to an hour in the morning (being very conservative there) but this will probably switch down to a maximum of 30 mins as the old LCD TV will go in the bedroom, which will take most of the watching.
Sometimes it's on for a few hours in the day but that'll be slightly less now as we watch more other content and the translucency of the logo is a lot different to the stark red news channel banners. Rarely sport (maybe on football match a year in the World Cup) and no gaming.
Not sure if any burn in, which I think is unlikely anyway, would appear within the first 5 years anyway but for peace of mind, I may just buy it and not think about the money. Covered all bases that way.
Just go on you tube.Are there a set of slides that I can use to check uniformity for the A8?
I guess I should wait until after 100 hours to do this?
I already have some settings to tweak to get me going.
Try unplugging the TV at the wall for a couple of minutesDoes anyone else have a problem launching broadcast TV? If I select the TV button (which takes me to Youview for live and catch-up TV), the screen is blank even though the channel information shows that a channel (say BBC1 HD) is selected. If I press Guide and then select BBC1 HD, the screen goes blank again even though the programme information still shows that I am indeed on BBC1 HD. The only way I can get a picture is to use the channel button on the remote to switch up to BBC2 HD, which it displays correctly. If I then use the channel down button, BBC1 HD now displays correctly.
I tried setting the TV shortcut button to show live TV (ie Freeview) rather than live and catch-up TV (Youview), but it didn’t make any difference.
Any suggestions please?
Exactly...just get the protection and forget about it.....I don't care about burn it as I have the same insurance....I took out the protect plus insurance with John Lewis works out at less than £30 a year it's a no brainer
