I want to break the TV in quickly so is it ok to leave it on something like HBO (has no logo's or black bars) for hours on end for the first week? Or will this cause the TV to over heat?
I was trying to tell you that you really don't need to be careful beyond displaying static content. Don't worry about it so much, stop freaking out your wife (it took effort for me not to do the same w/hubby
) and your tv should not overheat.
I believe that Value Electronics and others who seriously run slides do so nonstop. Robert, owner of VE, told us last year about an incident where the police were called out, because of the flashing colors coming from his store during the night, some people thought that something odd was going on over there. He was preparing newly received tvs for the shootout and some for delivery.
Unless you plan to put the tv through a torture test with gaming or play a static image all day, I highly doubt you'll see anything that will concern you. If by any chance you do, which I really highly doubt, just know that it will go away quickly by playing regular content or an animated/cartoon dvd/blu-ray.
