    I've got a Denon 2900 which unfortunately does not have a screen saver mode. Bout' the only thing I don't like about the unit. Anyway, the player is used mostly for SACD/DVD-A playback and it’s not usual for me to leave the track info up on the screen for hours at a time. My TV is a 7-year-old Toshiba 35” CRT, which has been AVIA calibrated and has a great picture. Should I be concerned about leaving this “Track Status Display” information up on screen for extended periods of time? Or am I being anal?

    Nobody has any "Pearls of Wisdom" regarding a possible "Burn In" issue?

    why risk it? do you really need to see track info when listening to music? i usually turn the tv off or switch it to cartoons. (makes a nice music video some times)

    Johnny: I agree, why risk it indeed? But, I just wasn't sure if that type of menu overlay could cause the same type of burn-in damage. Oh, by the way option 2 is not practical for me. My two boys (7&10) would think I'm watching TV and attempt a remote control mutiny. My TV remote by the way, is the same as my receiver. Thanks for the feedback.

    Greetings

    Yes, over time, it will result in uneven wear ... depends a lot on where the contrast is set and how long the TV has been on ...

    Regards
