i run mine on cinema most of the time, except weekends i have it in sport mode with the energy saving mode set to 'minimum' and i have NOT noticed any higher electric bills since i parked my 42-inch LCD. that's all i care about.
The pixel orbiter subtly shifts static pictures to continuously keep the plasma screen's phosphors working. By never resting, there is little chance of burn-in. Creating more work for the display may seem like a poor decision with regard to the lifespan of the unit, but keeping the phosphors fresh and changing actually helps the plasma screen last longer.
Black is preferred...............u can always toggle between "cinema zoom" & just scan/program default/16x9, that way the line is always moving and not staying in the same place. Also, engage pixel orbiter & all is well.........
We're glad you're here & sharing your settings with us
I do, from time to time, toggle from just scan to 'set by default' as sometimes if i have 'just scan' it will introduce artifacts on top/bottom/sides of screen, at no fault of the tv, but the various sources that i feed it. 'just scan' is nice because it takes away any overscan.
We haven't had anyone post their iSF settings yet, but really should only be messed with by an iSF calibration tech. Which i'm going...
i had posted them earlier in this thread. i attached link below.
canuck, i would say the Sammy u didn't notice the temp IR as much, probably because it had a better anti-glare coating.
I have eclipsed the 500+ threshold usage & i have no burn-in issues. My wife has our directv guide up all the time to fish for new shows to record. I tell her never to have it up for more than 15 minutes-at-a-time, and i'm sure she abuses that time window. I have the Orbiter set & it is active for "just scan", unlike some other manufacturers(samsung)
