Default Just Got A TH-50PX6U - Burn In?

I got this great Panny from Costco and so far it's been great. I'm still learning the ins & outs of owning a plasma (i.e. learning about burn-in, calibration, etc.). However, I haven't been able to track down a thread/posting about watching DVDs on my plasma. I own a ton of widescreen DVDs and I'm worried the bars will burn-in if I watch too many movies. Should I be concerned?

Default Sure and how much ?

I would try to zoom out the black bars if possible and
enjoy the whole screen.
Good Luck on your new Plasma.

I have looking at the Plasma at Costco too.

Not to be contrary, but I believe zooming the image costs some picture quality. We're not spending a small fortune for compromised pq.

Please read the thread on "burn-in" in the Digital Home Faqs (under help).
I believe you'll find that there is a difference between burn-in and image retention. So go ahead and watch those dvd movies as the director intended.

Lots of posts around her on plasma. Look for posts on breaking in a plasma or search on image retention.
