I am new to the plasma "game" but I just bought a Samsung PN51e500 and I love it. I am about 200 hours of usage in and I am beginning to see a little IR. It is not bad at all and is only noticeable on a black screen. The screen scrolling feature usually gets rid of it. I assume this is normal? Is there anything I can do to help "Break in" the TV? How many hours of watching will it take before I can watch a 2.39:1 movie without getting the black bar IR? I watched the hobbit in 3d the other night for 10 minutes and got some IR but it went away with the screen scrolling feature.
