I recently purchased a Sony 46" RPTV (KP46WT510) and have Time Warner Cable with the Pioneer HD box. I am using the option on the box to send 4:3 signals to the TV with black bars along the sides. I know if you feed in a regular 4:3 signal and allow the TV to just send grey bars along the sides, you are seriously running the risk of burn in. However, is that the case with the black bars (also present along top and bottom when watching 2.35:1 material)?
