The outer edges are more black compared to this middle section. Additionally, I could make out the TV-Guide logo burn-in, again this is only obvious when the background is black or when switching inputs with no signal.

-With no signal or the screen completely black then you should not see anything at all even if you had burn-in because none of the phosphors would be activated.

Are you sure about that? CRT's can definitely burn to the point where you see the image even with the set completely de-energized. I don't know about plasmas, but I wouldn't think they'd be all that different.
So, what do you guys think? Is this workable? Does it solve the problem of screen burn-in?

Does anybody use a Video Shift Device that moves the input signal slightly? I am talking about the device made by Extron model VS-200-SL. This device moves the video signal horizontally and vertically so slowly that it is not seen by your eyes, but allows the phospher to cool.

if some widescreen format material is in a wider aspect that 16:9 it will have black bars top and bottom - would watching for example a 2 hour film that is >16:9 wide aspect cause burn in at all - or just a temporary burn?
