Pat182rick,

Thanks for posting.

The first 100-200 hours you want to be careful, as you have been. After that initial break-in period, you can run the Scrolling Bar feature when you detect images in the all-white screen, but don't feel that this will always be a daily ritual. Happy As well, you might want to consider limiting the black bars to 15% of your viewing time, or zooming the screen. (You can stretch it, also, but I hate watching TV stretched, and just assume that most people do, too).

Thanks for taking the time to understand the technology, and making the effort to get the most out of your television.

Keep me posted, and we're here if you have any questions!
