I now have a very light red line at the bottom where the difference is on a 1.85 movie and a 2.35 movie. It's not enough to ruin the TV but I take my hat off to you for knowing this before it was too late like in my case.
Man, this is getting ridiculous! First I hear about channel logos, now this. I feel for you, 1blwnsaleen. Personally, I don't think any level of adjustments will totally prevent burn-in because you're basically getting a moving picture in one section of the screen while a static picture in another section. Definitely reduce the contrast to AVIA/VE levels, but I think the only thing that really helps the situation save for distorting the image to fit the screen is a Roaming Picture
. I think this is a feature on the Iscan Pro where a 4x3 image changes location (slightly) on the widescreen TV each time there's a new scene. It alleviates 4x3 burn-in on a 16x9 set, but the whole 1.85 vs 2.35 thing, I dunno. That just takes the cake!
