I have a Samsung HP-T4254 Plasma.
I've had my screen in "break-in" settings since I bought it, January of this year. The TV should be past its break-in point, but I still keep these settings because I like the way it looks, and I know it is less likely to give me BI or IR problems.
Thing is when I play games, and I've played games with stagnant info bars, like GT5P, BF Bad Company, and won't get any kind of IR from these games at all. But then games like Forza 2, Saint's Row (especially), Uncharted, or MGS4, I will get a small amount of IR from. I attribute this to the colors of the bars, the aforementioned games have "softer" color palletes used for these bars, but the other games seem to use a brighter color. Not necessarily black and white either. For the small amount of time that I have ammo up on uncharted, is still enough time to get a little bit of noticeable IR in blacks.
Could there be something wrong with my break in settings? Maybe color is turned up to high? I'm sorry I can't post them right now, I'm at work. If it would be beneficial to post my settings, I will when I get home. Other than that, is this even behavior to worry about? When I get a full screen image it wipes out this IR in a matter of seconds it seems.
Is my TV set wrong, am I not actually out of break-in period yet? I don't really use it to much, if I get an hour a day I'm lucky.
Should I even worry, and this is just normal behavior?
