Question Any way to cover network badge/logo to avoid screen burn?

Is there any way to cover up the network logo/badge/icon (whatever the official name is) that most networks always use in an evil attempt to destroy our expensive projectors?

If not, I'll propose it in the Feature Request thread. At the very least there could be a variable size, square or round, blacked out portion of the screen that the user could reposition to be over the network logo.

Yes, that would look a bit odd, but it's a hell of a lot better than burning out CRT tubes which are very expensive.

The best solution would be for the user to set a custom "blocking icon" for each channel, so that the user could make a black icon nearly identical to the size and position of the network's own logo. (Black does not cause any tube burn, while the full blazing white that so many network bastards force on us are the worst possible for our precious investments.) The user's own "blocker icon" settings would always be remembered for that channel, and a shortcut key option could be added to toggle the blocker icon on or off.

This would also help with news/sports channels to cover up their tickers and gigantic spinning logos.

I know that buying a cheap digital projector is an option for just watching TV, but especially as Sage eventually supports HD I want to watch on the best looking display possible.
