634 MTBF?


New member
I just recently received my 634 kit and I'm very pleased with it. I hope to keep it for a long time, so I have this question:

Is it ok for me to leave the LCD on at all times? My PC is always on but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to shut off the LCD when I go to sleep, for example.

I wouldn't think that LCD burn-in (or burn-out) is a problem, but I thought I'd ask just to be safe.


PS - feature request :) Is it possible to change the visibility of WinAmp screens in the Crystalfontz display software based on whether or not WinAmp is in play/stop mode? I want the WinAmp screen "always on" only if a song is playing--if I press stop or WinAmp reaches the end of the playlist, I want the WinAmp screen to be skipped.
