SVS doesn't have their own forum. Last time I was there HT-Spot had a pretty active SVS board.

not home theater in a box. I pieced it together myself, thank you. in a box wasn't powerful enough

I was having a very bad case of buyers remorse this morning. I actually went back to the store to exchange it for something a little less expensive. I was feeling really guilty about spending so much on "just a tv" and was sure that I could find something else that would make
me just as happy. Needless to say, I still have a Grand Wega being delivered tomorrow.

Congratulations on your purchase Lisa! After dropping $2500+ on Axiom's, HSU VTF-2, and a Yamaha 1400, I'm in no position to go the route you have gone. Guess I'll have to suffer with my 10 year old 32" Toshiba. However, a wide screen HDTV is on the horizon and I will stick around here to learn as much as I can about LCD and other type TV's. Good luck.
Pete

I've been gaming on standard RPTV's for about a decade without ever burning in an image. I havent' seen a game in years that has a static image that never changes. At the least, it will have a load screen or some sort of video to push along the story.

Of course, LCD is pretty bullet proof in this regard so you don't have much to worry about anyway.

That's pretty much a given.

One of guys at the electronics store told me something that I thought was very interesting today. I don't know if it's true or not. He said on a plasma TV if you have screen burn and you run the TV with just snow for a while, e.g. overnight, it will fix it. He didn't know if worked on other types of tvs.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.
He said they did it on a floor model they had.

I don't believe that is true. Besides, where are you going to find snow/static these days?? Most TVs now show a blank blue (or gray) screen when they don't have a signal.

I have to plead complete ignorance on this topic, but don't some of these new televisions have screen-savers loaded on them? Is there any way to run something like this? My DVD player actually runs a screensaver automatically when it's paused for more than 5 minutes. Do XBox, PS2 and other gaming devices not do this?

I dont know about a PS2 or XBOX, but the Dreamcast has a screensaver. (after 5 mins of pause it dims the screen, after 15 mins this funky bouncing colored spotlight thing kicks in)
