    ace....been watching and just had to let it out that i finally got the set[​IMG]
    I would really like to know a few things. Right at the moment i have the brightness at 55 (is 60 too much?) and the contrast at around 37. Is that good enough where i dont have to constantly worry about burn-in? I am almost paranoid. Lie for watching 4:3 (tv shows) how much is considered too much? videogames (x-box) whats classified as excessive play times? (says something along those lines in the maual)...i do want to be very careful, buut dont want to keep thinking i may be using it too long on the worng things.. thanks in advance.

    with what I've read so far projection tv's don't really suffer from what is commonely known on Tube tv's as blooming so I don't believe you have to worry as much about burn in with projection tv's as you do with direct view. Also congradulations on the purchase hope you have the sound to compliment that big boy so you can enjoy your movies both audibly as well as visually [​IMG]

    I believe that after your display has been calibrated your settings need time to really set in. That's what I think they mean by looks better with time

    I've had mine two weeks now. My 100 hour break-in was done on the sixth day. During that time, on all sources (DVD, antenna for OTA, and satellite) I had contrast at 35, brightness at 40, and sharpness at 40. All I can say is we love it, especially the "TheaterWide 1" mode for 4:3 broadcasts. I agree with Ace, sit back and enjoy it. Don't get hung up like so many here and start tearing it apart and modifying everything on the set. If it looks great to you after an Avia calibration, thats all that matters. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
