Actually, I have a plain old CRT that doesn't seriously suffer from
burning in. (provide that I resume playback within a month or so. ;) )
And if I want to save power, I power off the CRT completely, and thats
something my VDR cannot do on its own (yet). Just blanking the screen
has no advantage for me.
