I thought that burn-in is a result of uneven phosphor wear between the burned-in images and the rest of the screen. But that's semantics.

The Break-in DVD ideas come straight from the Panasonic White Paper recommending against ANY side or top/bottom bars during the first 100 hours of panel life.

That is VERY cumbersome to do even if you watch HD only (most commercials are 4:3).

So, running the Break-in DVD at night and when you're at work allows you to hit the 100 hours quickly and enjoy varied programming earlier (HD, DVDs in OAR and some SD thrown in for good measure).

I intend to mix them up pretty good, but I will NOT distort my widescreen DVDs to fill my screen, or stretch SD content.

The latest Panny looks like it is pretty resistant to burn-in, anyway, so I don't worry.

Anyone get this message when clicking the dvd link from the DVD shrink site?

Jaa-Yoo..

Which exactly did you burn to the DVD?? both the NTSC and PAL?

What do you do w/ the ISO image? Do I need to burn them into the DVD as well?
post #65 of 1284
Download the ISO and use a program such as DVD Decrypter (its free, do a google search) to burn it, thats probably the easiest way. You do have a DVD burner right? If you need more help with burning, i can point you to a tutorial
Depending on where you live, you will need either NTSC or PAL. NTSC if you live in north america, PAL if you live in europe.

So I burn both the NTSC and the ISO to a single DVD disc correct using the DVD Decrypter?
post #67 of 1284
Not meant to be sarcastic, but why wouldn't I just want a white screen all the time? Why would I want any red, green, and blue screens at all. Although unlikely, if the player gets stuck on any of those images that would not be a good thing. But if it gets stuck on white only, then all is fine.

Just curious.

assJack1,
Someone mentioned once that the all white screen is a little harder on the plasma so I decided to make the different shades to give the screen a break from the intensity of outputting all white (someone please correct me if Im wrong because this is information I found on a thread here at AVS).
I also thought that changing the colors would also more closely simulate watching different programs as nothing is just pure white.

tiger3p,
Just the ISO,

This is all you need. Use DVD Decrypter to burn it.

I also got the forbidden message. I turned off my internet security and tried again. I was then able to download with no problem.

The link Jaa-Yoo posted will not work (external linking disallowed) .
But the links on the "Goodies" page should work.
post #72 of 1284
I was wondering the same about the colors. Why not just make it different shades of grey, as you already do with the decaying white. If you really wanted to replicate "real" viewing, you could do something like rolling bars and/or columns of black & white, blinking checker squares, etc. I was getting a little concerned about this disc that if the colors are not pure, they would lead to uneven color decay. Or how about someone using the wrong HD/SD color mix while playing this disc. (like if there was a little green in the red, the green would decay more than the red).

However, my concerns aside, I used this disc to get to 100 hours after watching 50 hours of regular tv. I did not find this disc until after 5 days of having the tv.

Quant,
The colors are true Red\\Green\\Blue according to photoshop. Not sure how that maps to the TV as far as being pure red green blue. Maybe one day Ill revamp this disc and make a few different versions of it available for download.

Same here:
- pure red (255/000/000 RGB).
- pure green (000/255/000 RGB).
- pure blue (000/000/255 RGB).
- a few shades of grey, with red, green and blue being mixed equally (i.e 96/96/96 RGB).

This is what I'm going to use for the new plasma. It looks great on the LCD monitor. Hopefully it will work as well. God, if we only had something like this in the '60's! Reallyslick.com has some AWESOME screensavers.

Thanks nailzer, i was looking for something just like this earlier today.

A DVD version of something similar can be found at:

I hope this isn't a stupid question, but how long does each color stay on the screen before it switches to the next color?

Reason I ask: when I play the DVD in the DVD burner in my computer, each color stays up for 60 second. When I play it in my Apex player that's hooked up to my plasma, each color stays up only a second or two; I mean, it's like a laser show at the planetarium , the colors are changing so fast.......

White screen would work just fine, but the "all white" screen does cause the plasma to draw the most current - if you worry about those "green" things.

Listen up Jabroni, I believe that each color should stay up for 30 seconds. enjoy.

Its actually 60 seconds... at least when I played it on my computer using PowerDVD 6 for testing purposes.
post #81 of 1284
Thanks, guys.

I'll be dasmed, it was just the Apex. I played it on another Apex, and got the same 1-2 seconds per color. Then I tried it on a Toshiba and a Panny players, and both played each color for the expected 60 seconds.....

Wow, a huge thanks to Evangelo for making this disc!

I'm an avid gamer debating between the Panny 50PM50U at Costco and a smaller LCD, but am still concerned about burn-in. I have two days to make my decision, and the fact that this burn-in disc exists makes it easier for me to choose the Plasma over LCD.

I'm sure this disc would've also prevented the burn-in I've just recently experienced on my three year old Sony rear projection TV, KP-43HT20.

No problem antidentite.
Remember though, this disk will not make your plasma burn-in proof. It most likely will not have prevented burnin on your Sony rear projection TV KP-43HT20. It will only help you get through the break in period more quickly so that the risk is greatly decreased. As long as you are somewhat careful with your plasma you have nothing to worry about.
I have the Pio 5050HD and play XBox360 on it for abou 2-3 hour clips. Any image retention (which may freak you out a little the first time you see it) dissapears after under a minute of watching anything using the full screen. You also can not see it when watching anything on the full screen for that minute. I also have 700+ hours on my plasma now which helps.
Please take the time to turn down your contrast and brightness settings durring the first 200 hours of breakin and then calibrate the plasma for all your sources after breakin. Also try not to game for the first 100 hours.
The picture that these plasmas produce now-adays is breathtaking (especially HD) and with a little care it will provide many many years of enjoyment.

Thanks Evangelo.

I'm very anal about things like image retention, and what I have on my SONY kills me. So if I get the Panasonic Plasma I'll have to be much more careful with it. But your disk will help me get through the first 100 hours so that I can start playing my games!

mbroadus,
The SVCD (the original file in this thread) can be burned to a CD-R as long as your DVDpalyer can play back SVCD. Most players can.
