OK...just found out I have some IR (not burn-in, hopefully) of the Food Network logo on the bottom right of my screen. It's only visible on the green slides from Evangelo, but I'm worried about it of course.
Some background: I have about 1000 hours on my VT30 purchased in September, ran D-Nice's panel prep for about 120 hours, and have been using his settings exclusively. I have the TV on Size 1 for cable, Size 2 for every other input (Blu-ray, 360, PS3), and Pixel Orbiter ON for everything as well. I'm about to get in to some heavy gaming with the release of Mass Effect 3, and there is a small HUD on the bottom that disappears during talking and cutscenes (maybe a 65/35 split with the HUD the former percentage).
What can I do to get rid of the IR? Should I run the Evangelo slides frequently? Is it safe to run slides with the D-Nice panel prep settings or on Vivid to accelerate it's removal? Leave them on the regular D-Nice mostly calibrated settings when running slides? Run the larger pack of slides (w/ 100 or so colors)? Run the screen wipe back-to-back-to-back?
I'm worried about this, and it's going to bug me especially since my game will run at least 50 hours and I'll probably keep it in my Xbox for the next several months. If I'm seeing Food Network at this stage in my TV's life, it's likely I'll see the 2.35:1 bars down the line as we watch a 70/30 split with those movies, and who knows what else.
