    Greetings.

    I've pretty much decided to get this Sony due to the fact that I play XBOX a lot, and I'm paranoid as hell about screen burn. Actually, I'm pretty much paranoid in general about any static images burning into an RPTV, even though I'd love to have a big screen. Anyway, does anyone know if 4:3 images look good on this TV? Is the stretch mode good? When playing XBOX, would it be better to use the stretch mode, or just have black bars on the sides? If the stretch mode isn't good, maybe I should make a different choice. I'm really annoyed that I can't get a bigger screen due to the burn issue, but I guess such is life. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Jason,

    I have a xbox and this very display, Wide zoom mode works fine for games. I acually do better now on Project Gotham than before. Also, 16:9 games like Tricky look even better. Just don't forget to adjust all the settings on the big black box of gaming goodness.

    Jason

    Do you just have to turn on all the HDTV resolutions and turn on the widescreen setting?
