I have the same set and same problem with the Smart Viera logo and also the program guide. Haven't heard the 'cold set' explanation before so will investigate that.
My set has over 1500 hours on it, brightness is at 0, contrast at 50. The IR issue has only become apparent in the last 2-3 weeks.....
I checked my PS3 display settings last night and the Super White setting was 'on'. I'd been playing a lot of Uncharted 2 and Wipeout in a timeframe that correlates to my noticing the IR. Other than the recent Unchartered/Wipeout binge, I've not played multiple hours of PS3 since last January. Other than the odd Blu Ray movie.
Obviously the PS3 can't directly cause IR on startup logos or program guides, but perhaps it's made the set more susceptible overall? The TV was set on 70 contrast and +5 brightness on the HDMI used for PS3 (the other contrast and brightness setting quoted above are for all other channels, xbox 360, fta, home theatre).
Anyone have and experience with similar? Need to determine cause first then rectify longer.
