In my home I have a HD Media Play (Philips) connected to my Panasonic plasma TV via HDMI. From the TV I have connected my Creative speakers. I listen to music by playing it via my HD media player.
When playing music the TV shows the list of songs. This screen is displayed constantly for quite some time (5 mins) till the screen saver starts. Couple of weeks ago I noticed that the songs screen had been burnt in on the TV screen. After this incident I had stopped playing music via my HD media player.
Today I found out an option in the TV where the display can be turned off (menu –> picture –> Screen Display) while the audio is still playing. This is the perfect option for me to listen to music while the TV display is switched off.
