More money is spent on marketing research than all other research combined.
The Microsoft mantra... we make more money by convincing people (marketing) we make the best product that actually making the best product (engineering).
When they do take a VERY hard look before you bail on your plasmas.
Most reviewers already have access to a high end plasma and annually manufacturers lend them the newest TV models for review. In addition to a review of a properly setup and calibrated model it allows reviewers to conduct a side by side comparison of plasma best picture winner vs current reviewed model. OLED models keep winning.
I think we both can agree that a real world comparison requires two properly setup and calibrated TVs side by side. No beer required.
What you read is correct that, like plasma TVs, OLEDs can get burn-in if a static image or text is displayed for long periods of time. The LG OLEDs software has automatic and manual protection. It’s the reason screen savers became necessary when old CRT/TV monitor started getting burn-in.
Agreed. But when enough people see and hear the same thing it’s called a consensus.
“OLED technology turns off pixels representing blaCK, so the blacks on an OLED screen are 100 percent black. Plasma screens don't have that level of precision,so blacks aren't as black on a plasma screen as they are on an OLED screen.”
I have a commercial Bunn coffee maker in my house, the same model they use in diners. It's the best investment I think I've ever made.
The commercial models, YES but the legendary "home" models are only the same as they've been forever on the outside.
Same with KitchenAid mixers and the Speed Queen washers and dryers. They look the same but are not the same inside.

LED for the lighting of an LCD panel.
My Bolt+ from late April 2017 still works ok. I've been using various laptop coolers containing fan(s) to keep it running cooler for a long time, since the ODT seems really high.
I was tempted to ask for a forum to be created: The TiVo Doom & Gloom Forum. It can collect all the scattered threads in one place and be easily blocked.
Threads can be:
cable card being discontinued
IPTV will kill TiVo
ATSC will kill TiVo
xyz cable company dropping TiVo
Cable cutting will make everyone use OTA
Streaming will replace cable and OTA.
Amazon will eat our lunch.
I'm sure there will be many more.
"The demise of all the TiVo staff."
Wow this thread went askew quickly.
Anyway, I received the replacement Bolt last evening, set it up and now I'll have to work to redo all my passes. Not looking forward to it.
Heat, eh? Yes it's a small box with lots of stuff crammed inside. I can see how that could be a problem. BTW the Bolt sits (and the previous one that died sat just the same) alone on the floor with nothing around it that could block airflow. It's hardwood floor not carpet.
Is there any sort of a 3rd party cooling solution for these boxes? I wouldn't want the replacement to die a hot death also.
I have a spare laptop cooler but it seems a bit overkill for the Bolt because it's from a 17" laptop. I could probably rig something from loose fans, but the fans I have aren't particularly quiet. Most are server-grade fans, 40-60mm high-speed high-noise types.
Check the titles in the Bolt forum. There are a few dozen threads.
Heh, been reading a few threads already, but when looking around in other places I found this:
Tivo Bolt cooling adapter by cmh
A model for a 3D printed cooling enclosure for Bolt. I was in fact thinking of designing my own, but someone did it already and it looks better than the idea I had. I'm thinking of printing this either in white PLA (to match the cover of the Bolt) or in transparent PETG.
Or... modify it a bit for a 120mm fan.
In addition to laptop cooling fans that people have posted here:
