The only burn-in I'm aware of on HDTV's is from leaving a static image on the screen for too long. My old plasma TV suffered this after I used it as my computer monitor for a while, and left it on without using the PC. All the current game systems have burn in protection that will dim the screen after so many minutes. No need to worry about connecting too many systems to one TV. Just turn it off if you aren't using it :)

I think that you might be on to something. My tv goes into screen saver mode when no one is wathching it more than a certain amount of time. Like when I pause a live show. I guess newer sets tend to protect against that. XBOX powers down to non bright colors as well as the PS3. The wii may be the problems as well as other devices. The bright colors might produce the pixel burn. Need to watch for that here on out.

Shadoza thanks for that info I have the same thing even with the movies I put in....they bleed thru the screens....I thought maybe I just had to much connected on one tv but I will check out all connections since the tv is only a yr old maybe that's the problem then...

I'm not sure what you are referring to. We have two video players and a wii hooked up to one television, and a pS2 and PS3 connected to a second TV, and a PS3, PS2, and a Xbox 360 connected to a third television. The fourth television has a NES, SNES, SEGA, VCR, and DVD player connected. The fourth television has been connected like that for over ten years and it suffered no damage. The other three, all HD flat screens have been connected to multiple items for over five years and have shown no signs of wear.

I wonder if there is a bad/crossed connection somewhere. The only warning I am aware of is Pixel burn, which happens if you leave a game on without a screen saver for a very long time. Most new games goes into saver mode if you leave it for more than ten minutes.

When we first set up our large HD we had cable bleeding through the video movies; however, once it was reconnected (properly this time) the bleeding stopped.

Thank you for warning us. We have a spot on our flat screen in the living room. I don't know if it is from gaming or not. We have the PS2 and Wii hooked up to it and the DVD player and VCR.

Not sure what you call it but I read last year somewhere to be careful about the systems you hook up to your tvs because it can cause this burn out I guess where your tv screen starts to bleed thru...

Well it's happened to me and I'm here to warn you don't hook to much up to any one set...I have seven components hooked up to one might I add faily new flat screen tv and now I get the bleed thru on that tv... so now I have to take some of the systems off that tv...buy another because of course I'm now out of warranty...boy my luck...anyway my warning to you all be very careful how much you connect to your tvs
