What is the real low down on screen burn in for RPTVs??

1. Are RPTVs more susceptible to burn in than tubes?

2. Should you not play video games on an RPTV?

3. Should you not display a 4:3 non-stretched image on a 6:9 screen?

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,

JPF

Jeff, first off welcome to the forum.As far as RPTV goes I not any expert here but as far as I understand they are more likely to burn than a direct view.I have a buddy that has a pioneer RPTV that he has played a lot of video games on without any problems yet, I would just watch that its not something where the backround is not the same all the time,a good example that I know of would be Gran trismo where the track map is displayed and dose not change wile your on that course.I don't think this would be any concern wile running a three lap race but if you were running the endurance tracks that image will be there for some time.

And last if your set gives you the stretch option I would use it my buddy has had his set for around four years & watches quite a lot of movies on it & its starting to show signs of it,by the way though his is a 4.3 set playing 16by9 movies on it. I'm sure someone else will chime in & give you a little more info than what I can.
