Not saying regular content wouldn't have removed it just replying to poster who claimed slides were useless for removing IR.
Why are so many posters being so dang arrogant about this.
I am not saying slides are better than watching regular content for removing IR I am just saying slides DO WORK, it is a fact not an opinion and I have used this method several times myself.
Why would I use slides over regular content?
Here is why I use slides sometimes.
Right now the Australian open grand slam is going on. During the evening the only thing I have time (or want to watch) is this. It is aired on the tennis channel and ESPN which both have bottom sections of screens dedicated to tickers and feeds. Watching nothing but that several nights a week for ~3 hours at a time makes for some pretty decent IR on the bottom of my panel.
I dont want to worry about looping a safe DVD or finding a channel that I know wont air something with a logo or black bars to run all night or day while I am asleep or at work.
So instead at night after I am done watching tennis (I do this only 1 day per week) before I go to bed I start running the slides. The IR is there and easy to see. The next morning before I go to work I go up to my TV check for IR (its gone) and then turn off the TV.
The slides give me a quick easy way for me to get rid of IR without me babysitting my TV and I dont have to worry about watching tennis 4 days in a row and it making a serious problem.Edited by TennisFreak - 1/18/13 at 11:57am
