    I mean, why are RPTV CRT's more prone to burn-in than a regular direct view CRT?

    The reason I ask is, now that I have my RPTV, I've suddenly become aware of static images on my set... particularily station logos. I find myself making a mental note of which ones are the worst. It's distracting almost to the point where I can't concentrate on what I'm watching.

    Is there a name for this type of phobia? Stationlogophobia?

    Brightness. You're getting more light out of a set of 5.5-9" CRTs than a direct view set produces on a 36" CRT, which means that the phosphers are being driven much harder.
