250 hours of nonstop IR removal methods (screen wipe, slides, and pixel flipper) now, and the presence of the Netflix nav bar at the bottom of the screen is about 80% gone on white (on colors it's 99-100% gone). In its wake are slightly darker shades where it once lied (perhaps MgO sputtering, uneven wear, or burn-in itself). It has been at this current level for at least the last 100 hours or so, so I'm beginning to lean towards permanent. Fortunately, it won't be visible 90% of the time (and probably 100% of the time from my typical seating distance). It still has me frantic of ever using Netflix again as well as from watching much content with stationary graphics (sports, cable stations with logos, tickers, etc.). That being said, the Roku stick for my Oppo is en route, and it will enable me to do 2 things: Put the pixel orbiter to use and have the benefit of a screensaver during Netflix viewing.
