Guys,

I realize there's a sticky up above for this, but c'mon, that thing is up to 2,500 posts! Who has time to read all that?! I think I'd kill myself



I would think I should be able to turn this thing on and use good judgement for the first 100 hours or so. And by good judgement I mean no 4:3 aspect ratio, no heavy gaming, no ESPN Sportscenter with the black columns on left and right, etc. Is this fair, or am I way off?


Thanks in advance.

Well you don't have to read the whole thread, maybe just the past six months worth of posts



I'd say you pretty much have it right - just be mindful of what you display on the screen for the first 100 hours (i'd go 200 hours since it's a Samsung) and keep the screen filled with full screen content and limit the amount of black bars and tickers and logos etc as much as possible.


If the TV will play a picture slideshow from an USB or SD card slot you could download dozens of 1920x1080 HD Wallpaper pictures and use them to help age the panel by running a slideshow when you're not actually watching TV shows - that gives a nice mix of screen-filling IR-washing content and looks fookin incredible to boot. I sometimes play these pictures when i'm listening to music or reading or just piddling around the house.

BTW it's called Breaking In, not burning in. Burn in is when you permanently damage the panel and we don't want to do that

I'm in the same boat. I received my pn58c8000 2 or 3 days ago and this thing is amazing, only have maybe 1 or 2 hours of watching on it so far. I've been being cautious to not watch anything with a static logo or bars for too long. I have to say, just about everything you watch these days has a darn logo or bar, never noticed it till now.


Anyone actually running those burn-in slides anymore? Or do you say putting imagery in a slide show is basically the same thing?


Any other tips appreciated.

Any Break-In slides that go on a flash drive instead of DVD? I don't have my DVD hooked up yet, but probably will hook it up shortly.


I found one that was for flash drives but forget where the link is now, anyone know?

http://www.eaprogramming.com/ has downloads for both an ISO (region protected though) and a non-regioned video_ts folder that most DVD playing apps can use. That's what I used for my PN58C6400 for the first few nights of non-use.


Cheers

And there's also a zip file containing the JPEG images that can be unzipped to an SD card of USB stick and play a slideshow on the TV instead of using a DVD player.

Ok, looking for quick assistance so I can stop going through trial and error after reading through forums where I have to piece together answers.


Have a Plasma Samsung 58" with Pioneer SC 25 and 23FD blu ray player. Went to eaprogramming.com to create a break in DVD. I tried the ISO image, using ImgBurn and seems that is recognized as a data disc on the player and a region specific dvd by the computer (windows media). Tried burning the files from the video_TS to a new dvd, and that also read as a data disc on the player and couldn't even get it to play on the computer to ensure I burned it right. Any suggestions as what part Im missing here (Im sure its a simple thing) as it shouldn't be hard to burn a DVD and just play it



TIA.
