closed captions will burn-in my RPTV?

Hi,

I'm planning to buy my first RPTV in the next days, but I'm a bit concerned with burn-in problems.

Since English is not my native language, I would prefer to watch movies with closed caption. Will this cause burn-in problems?

Thanks a lot
Daniel

That's a good question which I doubt anyone will be able to answer conclusively. Since nobody has chimed in yet, though, I'll give you my opinion: no. The captions are different sizes and are always moving. A properly calibrated set should run no risk. Even a set in torch mode would probably be safe.

I'd guess closed captioning is probably comparable to letterbox black bars from wide movies--not as static, but you probably use it w/ more movies, so total on-screen time might be comparable. Probably not a real risk w/ proper calibration, but torch mode would be a different story.
