In this particular case, burn-in will most certainly occur. TiVo is connected
to televisions, and big screen TVs are very susceptible to burn in because of
how hard the CRTs are driven to produce a large picture. There are tons of
horror stories on the 'net about it from people who left them on news channels
for days after 9/11, or watched 4:3 material unstretched on a 16:9 screen for
long periods of time.
On PCs though, you are correct, burn in is pretty much eliminated these days.
I have seen it still happen on modern screens, but you've really got to work
at it :).

I agree. I would really like to root this out as well, but I have no idea
where to start. There isn't much documentation around, and I couldn't find
anything in the icecast.xml configuration file that seemed to fit. As soon as
we come up with some things to try, I'll have at them.
