Thank You
Basically it'll not hurt to play BrakingInDVD to warm up the Set before some heavy usage brakes loose. Athletes doing warm up before physical event; Racers warming up their engines before abusing RPm;
What about PlasmaTV viewers?... ohh well why not? Let's give it a warmup welcome straight fresh out of the box

Would channel logos such as travel channel and Disney cause and burn-in or image retention if these channels are watched for an hour or so at a time?

No they should be fine if you properly adjust the picture for an accurate picture.

Most of the logos if you look closely are translucent and not solid white. I have never had a problem with them on my plasma.

Personally I would avoid the business channels, especially the Fox Business Network HD channel with their HD wing, but to a somewhat lesser degree CNBC and Bloomberg. CNN, FOX and HLN also have rather strong logos. Why they don't go to the opaque logos, I don't know.

This is the Surge protector I use:

If your TV acts "funny" try unplugging the power for a couple of hours and see if that resets it.

Thanks PFC5
I'll definitely consider this 1. Looks So much simpler from those "Monster" Sprotectors that are in BB with doubled prices

And usually a much higher joule count compared to the Monster brand surge protectors as well.

When I pointed that out to the salesman at Circuit City back when I bought mine Cyberpower unit, he couldn't believe it. They usually put them in the computer section to not compete with the Monster brand in the HT section, but they work the same. It is just to get the higher markup for the store when they push Monster brand.

Boyyy... I guess Monster & LCD are like 2 best Buds - "Partners in Crime". Was in the BB today Monster prices are really "Monster". 4ft HDMI - 100Greens.... I'm telling ya... I can also use it as a necklace for a girl so she can show off some gold coated plates on each end.
BB is like "fish pool" where shiny and blown.out.of.the.proportion merchandise is a BAIT, and people take bait big time.
In the TV section. Fleshy LCD's just hypnotize the eyes of a "1st time" visitor. No one even bothers to take a glimpse on Plasma. I've asked a sales person: "if i can play around with tv picture settings?" His eye almost doubled in size. He agreed. Just in couple of minutes Plasma screen becomes a super star Talk about REAL picture.....
Well I certainly hope that everyone will be happy with their purchase. As long as everyone is HAPPY

By the way PFC5 - not one of those tech questions -
How hard is the road from being employed(working for someone else) and to becoming self-employed(working for yourself)?
P>S You don't have to answer(I'm just thinking about different life strategies...)

Working for yourself is HARDER but more rewarding IMO. But to be successful you can expect to put in more hours being self employed so you can keep customers/clients happy without paying a lot of extra for employees. Especially in the early years.

Thanx for the insight.
In R.Kiyosaki's book "Rich Dad/Poor Dad" he talks about 4 categories of ppl.
Employees
Self-employed
Entrepreneurs
and "I'm good for Life"
So, how soon U'll be in Entrepreneurial Lounge? I mean with your knowledge and intelligence you probably already there

I wish!

I work cheaper for clients to help them and feel bad when times get tough for them and discount their fees. I doubt I will ever be rich.

Hey PappyLap, how's it goin'
Why would you put dat poor shinigami Itchigo in da pic, from the "real world" point of view he's not that rich. All he does is - chasing ghosts and gets beaten down by some devilish punks
Although with his leaderlike character traits he could be the richest man their is.
