That's not my understanding. There is always a chance of image retention, but burn-in is very hard to achieve with or without orbiter.
I have a non-elite 8G Kuro 6010 that has never had a problem with IR. For me, a problem with IR is when I can see it while watching some program or movie that I'm interested in. I'm not a gamer. I've run the 6010 in Mode 1 with Dot by Dot, which means that there is no orbiter running unless I leave Dot by Dot for some reason..
Our set was recalibrated (new main board) by D-Nice last week. When he finished, and before he did his movie clips, I ask him if he could see any IR on the screen. He didn't except for IR of the very white square in the center of the screen that he had used during the calibration. True to the nature of short term as apposed to long term IR, the set had IR from the calibration, but if the source material is a good mix, it's nothing to worry about.
To think that IR, or even burn-in is impossible, may be risky. At least it would be risky for me.
