Yep! Mind you, I love ghost Adventures, but hate commercials hence the reasoning behind a DVR. Yes, I did skip through the commercials and was back to the program in 15-20sec. I had no idea what was happening. I would consider myself pretty cautious about what I watch. The static image was not there in November (or at least I did not see it over normal programs/Movies). I watched 4 episodes of GA's and turned off the TV. A few days back, I noticed something odd while watching another program on (CBS), and was like, what is that in the lower right corner (I could see it from 8-10ft away). I went to a clear screen and bam, there it was as you see in the pictures. I was so pissed!!! Here I paid over $2K for this TV, and was careful, and this is what happened.
I will say, it's fading a little, but I still notice it and can see the (HD) portion. I don't think you can see it in the pictures, but the whole thing was there, not just the (HD), but the words travel channel (the whole logo). I'm sure I'm not the only plasma owner out there that has been effected by these bright station bugs/logos/ or what ever they are called. I see " g12eyfox" is having the same issue and millions more.
Now, I'm not here to bad mouth plasma. In fact, as it stands, I find plasma to be the best/warmest/as close to CR tube as a TV can get. Each technology of TV viewing has it's weakness, unfortunately for plasma, it's this image retention/burn in.
