Your Emerson Sponge Bob's model will be SB350. It is a TV/DVD combo, with two AV inputs too. You ahve to see only DVD player with it as you says. You can change its mode to eiter TV/AV or DVD/TV by its remote control buttons. Press the DVD/TV mode button on the remote control to chage the modes to TV or DVD. On DVD mode, you can play DVDs with it. I thinks that you have its user manual with you now. Go to its pate  where there is illustrations for which button on the remote control handset should be pressed to select this. If you haven't its user manual with you, send your email address to me by FixYa comment box. I'll send a copy you the user manual to you by return mail. OK.
You can connect the DVD player ot your Sony TV in two ways. One way is via AV cable, and the other is S-Video cable. If you use AV cabel, connect the cable's one side ends to output sockets of the DVD player, marked as Audio-L, Audio-R and Video. Connect the other side of the cable's respective ends ot TV's respective sockets, marked as Audio_L, Audio-R and Video. This socket can be located at the back of your TV. If you expects a beetter picture quality, you can connect the TV-DVD by S-Video cable. If you connect it via Audio Video cabe, switch the TV to get AV-1, AV-2 etc, by input selector option. If you connect S-Video cable, Select TV' to recive S-video input via its input selector option. You can do these selections by the help of TVs remote control. OK.
If your DVD player is connected to your TV with a SCART cable, your TV should switch to DVD input when you insert a DVD and press' Play'. If you are connected with a standard co-axial aerial cable (fly lead) this wont work and you will need to buy a SCART cable (or new remote) if you wish to continue using your DVD player with this TV.
You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.
The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.
You can only have one item plugged in to the ave jack at one time. Seems silly for a tv with two sets of av ins, but i ran in to the same problem and this works. Just unplug the dvd player or the game console.
