I'm still debating whether I should get a 30" direct view 16:9 HDTV or a 42-47" rear projection 16:9 HDTV. Honestly, rear projection TVs scare me. I've heard it's hard to see dark scenes on them, I've heard the vertical bars when viewing 3:4 signals cause burn in, I've heard that station markers in the bottom left hand side of the screen when watching tv can cause burn in, and I have no idea if playing videogames on them is acceptable. Let's be honest here, is it really easy to cause burn in? Could I use a non stretched mode when watching 3:4 pictures and not cause burn in? Or would I have to stretch the picture out and make everything on screen short and fat? And for the love of God, do videogames screw up RPTVs? Because I play a lot of Gamecube and PS2. Please help!!
