Default Break-in may begin soon!

Ok, there is a very likely chance I will be getting the G10 tomorrow. Is there anything special I need to know concerning break-in aside from setting brightness and contrast to 50 and not having any black bars or static images?

I don't really plan to get too uptight about it and run a break-in disc 24 hours a day...I'll just watch TV and leave it on during the day while I'm home. Maybe I'll use an SD for break-in every now and then in between.

Anything else I should know concerning anything at all?

Thanks!

I really did, but searching for "how to break in" and other variants didn't seem to produce much. I did find one fairly complicated explanation on AVS, but it seemed like way more than was necessary.

Thanks. Just one more thing: are transparent station logos okay during break-in, or should I avoid them until afterwards?

Avoid those static scrolling bars at the bottom of Fox news and ESPN

I know, it was just funny the way it was written, seemed like an oxymoron.

Just watch your new toy. That works better than the scrolling bar IMO.

Turn on the "pixel shifter" -- max. pixels and max. movement. Then forget about "burn in" and enjoy the new TV and the holidays.
