There is nothing wrong with hooking video games up to projection sets. The only problem is that you never want a fixed image on the screen for too long as it will burn in the image into the Phosphor on the CRT’s. This can be any image, I have seen Home Shopping Network, Cartoon Network and other images burned into the screen.
If the image moves on the screen and is not stationary for a long period of time, it should be OK. You will need to use your best judgment on various gaming systems.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

    As long as the images generated by the game consoles are moving, not stationary, you should be fine. Static images that are on the screen for too long (such as a test card) can cause 'burn-in'.

Games are fine on a rear projection or LCD TV, it is the old tube type and the new plasma TV's that get burned in images and ghosting. Even they can be used you just have to be careful to select games that don't have a stagnant background that can cause a burned in image.

No your game devices would not cause any harm to your TV Set.

They have been designed by the best engineers to make them conform and compactible with Liquid Crystal Displays of all kinds.

All you need do is to have the neccessary cables to connect them.

An RF or an AV cable would do

Actually I have this TV and you need 2 Convergence IC's STK392-120's (120's and 150's will work) of course order 2 of the same type I'm using replacement 150's they allow for a little higher heat and were cheaper ALSO you need to replace the 12 resistors with 6.8 ohm metal film resistors, make sure they are metal film! don’t skimp out here I did and then they blew and fried my IC's and I had to replace everything again!

What you need:
(2) STK392-120 OR STK392-150 IC chips

BTW if you don’t plan on trying this and are going to throw out the TV, I still need a IC convergence board for a 51MP392H/17 TV I'm fixing, I'm willing to pay S/H and buy your IC board that’s not been tampered with. Edwinkraus@hotmail.com
