Man, this whole burn in/IR thing is scaring the crap out of me. I just got a 42UT50, and I'm doing everything I can to properly break it in. But this whole IR stuff is scaring me to death. I watch a crap load of NBATV, and the bottom scroller is always there 90% of the time, with the exception of commercials. I also used to play CoD heavily, something that I'd like to eventually get back into, but I don't know if I want to with that HUD and the IR that could come from it. I would have taken it back for an LED/LCD, but the input lag on those scare me even more for gaming. I don't really know what to do to ease my soul with this whole IR/Burn In crap. I don't want to have to not be able to watch my favorite channels and such because of the fear of burn in. I watch a lot of cable, and I know cable and plasma's don't blend well. Think I might just have to go to the dark side and purchase an LED/LCD, just for the simple fact that babying my plasma isn't what I want to do. I don't know though, if you guys feel like you can talk me out of this, be my guest because I am so dumbfounded right now and have no idea what I should do.
