    just try not to let the same screen display on the tv for more than a certain amount of time. even if you play a game, for example, certain parts of the screen never change (status bars, icons, etc) and those will burn in, even though the main part of the screen is always moving.

    how long does it take before it starts burning in? you could also try lowering the gamma, contrast, or brightness on your card so it doesn't stress the tv as much.
