I would assume that this D-Nice burn in DVD would be a good option for basically all Plasma's ?? ( more specifically a TC-P50G15 ?) .. And if so, could someone point to a place to purchase this disk?

- I think this would be a good option for me as I'm reading a lot about a 150-200 burn in time frame,.. .. and since I'm really not much of a TV watcher, it'd take me like a year to surf around and watch that much tv .... I do however want to take every precaution to ensure the best performance out of my new Plasma

Thanks,
Rick

If you have any problems let me know and I can send one to you as soon as I get it back as it is breaking in its third 500M as I type. Just shoot me a PM and I'll do what I can to get you going with a disc or surely another member can help as well, Good Luck and enjoy your new panel, sawz..

Thanks for the link!... I ordered a disk this evening

Sawsalot - Thanks also for the offer of help,.. I really appreciate it!.. I actually downloaded the zip files of the color swatches,... but I'm not the hip'ist when it comes to mounting images and burning DVD's,... Now I can rip up and down a CD and any type of audio stuff... but just not familiar with the video stuff yet

Who says you have to watch TV to simply break-in your plasma, hit the repeat button and sleep work and play while breaking in your new panel. When I broke in my Oppo BDP-83SE from Tuesday to Monday I had well over 144 hours break-in time.

You still haven't taken the plung yet? Reasonable picture settings to me means a dim picture in almost total darkness, other's might prefer a brighter picture do to the living romm lighting. Some don't like to watch TV in the dark, but to answer your question image retention will increase with higher contrast setting. Under 60 would be a good starting point for contrast. If you are watching a program in full screen you wont have any IR.

Do I have to worry about burn-in with a Plasma if the TV is in use, on average, everyday, "all day" (i.e. 7 hours non-stop)?

That is at least how long my plasma is on every day and we have no problems after over 1.5 years. You just need to make sure static images are not on for a long time. Nearly all logos are translucent so even those are not an issue.

If you use one of these break in disks, do you still get the benefits if you run the disk but stop periodically to watch t.v.? Or, must you run it for the full 150-200 hours non stop?

am about 100-120 hours in my new panasonic plasma , contrast still at 40 , i had my friend today here with his PS3 and i've put the contrast up to 70 , we've put FIFA 10 menu on for a minute and already we have a big image retention of the EA sports logo
anyway it's gone after less than 2 minutes... and then i've put back the contrast to 40 and played FIFA 10 for 6 none stop hours and didn't see any hint of IR ...
well i didn't know that the contrast setting is THAT effective on IR ...

I ran mine at 100% for about 20 hours on ps3 modern warfare 2 before I knew about the IR issue. I have since set it to 48% contrast. I havent had any issues. Its a panasonic Viera 50"

So when I run these images, my settings should be at VIVID or around 50? Also, is the ISO the same as the W/RGB image files? I'm running the images off of an SD card currently.

I've only managed to clock 29 hours since the TV arrived on Friday afternoon. I'm hesitant to leave it running when I'm sleeping or not home. I'm on the verge of saying F it and just letting it go.
