I was not trying to be coy here, and I've been on this thread for months looking at the same information. There is a lot to digest, and there are a few that will give you some very good information if you are willing to do the work. You are not going to find a definitive, clear answer to your question as there seem to be conflicting experiences with Burn-in and IR. From what I've gathered, the VT50 does seem to have IR potential, but if set up correctly (in non-suntan producing mode) and a broken in for 100 to 200 hours the IR is minimal and most don't have an issue. Gaming certainly adds a higher level of potential IR, and hopefully you will get a response more specific to that soon.
