So my IR is still there from the Food Network, and now I see some of the lower-left HUD windows from Mass Effect 3. What bugs me is that I play for a max of two hours at a time, and Mass Effect has those windows up for tops, 30-40% of the game. The rest is full screen cutscenes or wandering around with no HUD to speak of (save the brief dialogue choices). That ratio "should" prevent IR and burn-in, right? I've played 22 hours and already have the same shadowy IR on the green or low white slides. The HUD isn't even white! It's an electric blue deal.
I've always had the pixel orbiter on, and I typically run the slides when I'm done watching anything for an hour or two before I go to bed. I just bought the Disney WOW disc and have run the pixel flipper for at least ten hours so far...and it's still there.
I've babied this thing, have varied content, love the picture, but I'm really pissed off right now if I've somehow ruined it. I saw no IR from football games, no IR from other games (including Mass Effect 2 w/ similar HUD and Skyrim with the HUD turned low), no IR from my widescreen movies. What the hell! Should this be happening with where I'm at hours wise and usage wise?
