burn in cd for plasma?

by bradleyheathhays / October 9, 2007 4:43 PM PDT

Hey everybody. Got a new PHD9UK and I need to burn it in for the specified 100-200 first hours of use. I know I've seen burn in CDs or DVDs on the net, but for the life of me I just can't seem to find em now.

The ones I've seen in the past are looped video of either colors that change and fade in intensity, or random dot patterns that move around. The idea is if this type image is played for the tv's burn in period it will evenly level the phosphorus and greatly reduce future burn in potential.

Can anybody suggest where I should go to find one of these CDs or DVDs?

Thanks so much friends

Checked out the site gaber and calibration tools is something I really need too so thanks a bunch, those look great. I'm not sure if they'll do what I'm looking for now though. The two I've seen in the past have been real small ventures of guys just making their own DVDs and selling them independently. One was even an ISO you could download. But now when I type 'burn in DVD' into google they're just too many non related hits that cover up what I'm looking for.

Anybody else can help too?
