"tsteves, you don't get any vb
leaving it in standby?"
Well, that's a long story, but after a long while I have very little anymore which I very infrequently feel the need to adjust for. I rarely do the flicker tweak anymore at all, and find things just very slightly off when I do. It seems like either the more I adjusted the more I had
to adjust, or maybe, things just settled out over time.
"Doing a hard power down or just leaving it in standby after the fan turns off shouldn't affect the bulb life, correct?"
As long as you wait for it to completely shut down and cool off before turning off the power, I would think not. I don't know how long the fan runs after shutting down, or if it cycles on and off at a low level afterwards, etc. It is interesting that a pj everyone felt the need to power off after shutdown to avoid vb
ended up having bulb issues. I'm not saying they are related, though. Just kind of interesting.
