I have been of this belief for some time now. Last I wrote it had been 4 months of uninterupted use. Last month the first good rain of the year and bam...no TV. It has been a very rainy year in San Diego and now the family knows the routine. Turn TV on and mute sound. Turn on the heater and wait 45 min to One hour. Works everytime. Big pain in the Ass but my 52" TV isn't on the junk pile yet.
