Is there any problem with burn in if I run my SB3 for days at a time (like for Internet radio) with the display at full brightness? Does anyone know the MTBF for the display when running at full brightness?

I just read a thread about burn in I meant to link to, but closed the window, so you might search for it. The jist was that burn in is a possibility for this type of display- but hardly ever reported. A lot of people have pretty old devices still functioning perfectly without burn in.

The brightness behavior can be adjusted in player settings|display, and what is used as a screensaver while playing can be adjusted in player settings|basic settings.

If you like it being on 24/7, then something that scrolls is better than a static screensaver like date-time.

Thanks Skunk. I'm doing the scrolling, but I still worry about the little "Now Playing" above the scroll. Thing is that where I have my SB3 located, the brightest setting really does help.
