    Have a Sony hs10 with a brand new bulb.

    After using Avia... It has deemed that my contrast level should be at around the 76 area ( on a 1 - 100 )

    I previously owned a rear proj. and kept contrast around the 50 area.

    I know that on rear proj. tv's, high contrast levels are shunned as it can bring the burn in.

    I know that on an LCD projector that burn in a not too much to worry about... but should my level be that high? I mean I trust AVIA and all, but at that high will it diminish my bulb life sooner? The picture is awwwwwwfully nice. [​IMG]

    No.

    The bulb is on all the time, no matter what the contrast is. Bulb life might be altered by different bulb brightness settings if you have that ability, some projectors do.
