I did some searching to see if there was already an thread about burn in on a Sony widescreen CRT (34HS510) when viewing standard definition TV, but didn't see one. So my question is should I strech or zoom when viewing 4:3 content to prevent burn in? I know it can be an issue for RP and Plasma televisons, but I wasn't sure how likely it was for a CRT televison. Thanks for any answers you can give me!

Use the stretch or zoom mode. The stretch will keep the side bars from appearing and the zoom is for watching letterbox material on a widescreen.

Its not an issue with CRTs if you calibrate the set properly don't use 100% contrast for example. But I prefer stretch mode mostly for 4:3 programs anyway - just mix up the viewing modes don't do 4:3 for months at a time and nothing else!
