I've been playing my 360 on the same TV since the 360's launch. Excellent TV and the 360 looks great on it. I've run both component and HDMI (Premium then Elite) on the set, with no noticeable difference between the two.

Anyway...yes you can get burn in. It's not as easy to do as it was years ago because of not only better tech in the TV's but the consoles are pushing millions of colors, moving the entire screen around and there is very little "high-contrast" stationary objects like earlier systems. Think Pac-man, Donkey Kong, etc..... a black screen with a bright stationary level......being played for hours. High contrast, not moving image creates burn in. Now think of something like Gears of War. The entire screen moves, very little is displayed in a high contrast method, even the HUD isn't a bright object against a dark screen, etc.....

Yes...you can get burn in.......it's not easy, you'd have to basically leave your system on pause for a few days (with the TV on and the Xbox 360's screen saver disabled).....

My suggestion, don't worry about it. Enjoy your TV (it's a great set), enjoy your 360 (it's a great console) and have fun.

+1, I've been playing Xobx 1 and X360 for years on my Hitachi 65swx20b RP CRT for years now with no problems. I don't know about taking days for burn-in, I think it's more like 7 or 8 hours but I could be wrong. The tech is much much better in these RP CRT's that burn-in is really a thing of the past.
