wtf are you serious?
By using a break-in DVD, all phosphors age consistently across the entire panel....that is the entire point of break-in, to age the phosphors! Otherwise, if you just use cable (SD or HD, doesn't matter), there will be areas on the panel (like DEAD center) that are on average brighter than say the edges.
