    I am still researching the 60XBR950. I watch a lot of ESPN and was wondering if the Bottom Line will burn in the screen if watched too much?

    Please read through the Master Burn-in thread, which is stickied at the top of this forum. You can access it here:

    I will summarize, but certainly read the thread and/or post in it with your questions:

    If you calibrate properly, which includes drastically lowering the white level of your set, you very significantly reduce the chance of burn-in.

    The 60" XBR has no burn-in according to the Sony webpage:


    "• No Phosphor Burning "

    Of course, this could be a play on words(The XBR has no phosphors to burn in), but everything I've read says LCD technology is safe for steady image programming and PC use.

    Well, of course since I was too lazy to look up what kind of TV that was, I assumed it was CRT. Since it's LCD, that pretty much answers your question!
