Thinking hockey might look pretty sweet on this, I am. Just worried about the burn in factor on plasmas. Anyone care to put my mind at ease about that issue?
You'd have to seriously neglect or abuse your plasma tv to suffer permanent burn-in.
Most have pixel shifting technology that reduces the risk.
If my tv is paused for more than 10 minutes, a screen saver comes on. I think that is a faeture of my DVR though.
If something happens to slightly burn in on your screen, it will go away if you change the channel and watch something else for a while unless it's really burned in.
The only time I saw a hint of burn in was during a Presidential debate between Obama and MaCain a couple years ago. CNN had the same big, bright, bold graphic across the entire bottom of the screen for three hours...no commercials...no breaks...on screen the whole damn time...and when we changed the channel after it was over, you could kinda still see it, but it went away after a few minutes of watching something else. Never happened before, never happened since...never with a FOX box or a channel's logo that they put in the bottom corner...nothing.
I wouldn't worry about burn-in. Just don't leave your tv paused for a few hours. If you pause it and it's going to be a while, turn it off.
