    Well this is my first time doing anything with online gaming, as I have just bought a Wireless router (Linksys, it was a good 70 bucks, an online gamer from work referred it to me.). And I noticed as I'm doing some settings, it said that my Wii Console has a Burn In reduction setting (or something similar to that criteria.), and I was just wondering, what does that mean?

    This is very much not an online thing, thus, this is the wrong forum...

    However, to answer your question; Burn-In Reduction is a tool that forces your Wii to display what I suppose you could call, a screen saver. This is mainly for use with Plasma and LCD displays. A Burn-In occurs when your TV set is displaying the same, static image, for a long period of time. What this screen saver does, is basically to either dim the output from the Wii when you're not using it, or to display a moving image of some-sort that prevent any one image from being burnt into your screen.

    I am assuming with the Wii, that the output dimming is how it handles this. If you have a Plasma TV, or an LCD, then this option should definitely be on. Even if you don't, there is no reason why it shouldn't. In fact, I have no idea why it is even an option, and why it just isn't on all the time.

    Well, hope that helps. Hope I didn't confuse you. I went in circles a bit. You probably get it.

    Yup, I fell asleep while playing Zelda with the screen paused before this feature was released. I woke up and some of the stuff that was on screen stayed there for like an hour then went away.

    WOW. How is that even possible with all those scary twilight goblins everywhere and evil bird things flying just above you?
