Do I really need to run the Breakin DVD?

  • No, Some believe that the whole DVD Breakin procedure is overkill on today's new displays.
  • But you should follow the guidance in your owners manual at a minimum. Typically that means for the first 100 hours or so to…
    • Only watch full screen material (use stretch mode for Standard Definition (SD) broadcasts)
    • Avoid static images (avoid games, fixed displays in the border like games scores)
    • Turn on "Orbit Mode" slightly shifts display around
