    Post neo geo on projection televisions?

    Will playing my aes system on a projection tv cause a burn-in effect? I just bought a new hdtv projection tv and don't want to screw up the screen. I read in a article that it is ok to play on a projection tv as long as you do not pause the game for a extended amount of time. Has anyone had any problems using a projection tv?

    I have been worried about the same thing, are there any articles anywhere stating that it is indeed safe?

    In a recent issue of egm under the letters section someone asked this question. Egm responded that when they asked sony about use of their ps2 with projection televisions they said you should have no problem as long as the game is not left on pause.

    Static images are a problem despite the source. Be careful or you'll end up with "SCORE" or something on your screen. Lots of folks are getting the station logos permanently left faintly on the screen.

    ...but only if you really watch ONE channel only!
    Since most of us are channel hoppers,this is rather unlikely!

    Same with video games-youd need to play just ONE game over 3 months-with NO other games or any television in the meantime.

    For example:
    I am using a Pioneer SDT 5000.After getting Net access with Dreamcast,i used this TV for video games,television and surfing..and it took 7 months of extened surfing until i noticed some VERY minor burn-in.I am using another tv for surfing now ,but as you can see,it takes LOTS of time!

    I frequent some home theater forums, and several individuals have posted to the contrary. Of the ones that come to mind, one had the 64 point convergence grid burned in. Another had the MSNBC logo burned in. Someone has the cartoon network logo... My favorite was the Court TV logo from watching the OJ Simpson trial too much. None of the folks indicated that their viewing patterns were to blame.

    I think it's easier than some think. It's all a function of the brightness/contrast, the image itself, and the length of time. Apparently it's also easier during the TV's break in period as well. The stories above were Pioneer Elite and Mitsubishi sets, btw.
