You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.

Looks like your plasma has:
1 component
1 composite
1 VGA
1 S-Video

If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.

If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.

Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.

You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work:

here is the ebay search i used:

Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.

I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.

    How can I connect a WII console to my Champion Plasma CV 142 TV set? Can I connect it with RCA cables?


    The 42CVI has both composite and component video in the standard configuration. Either of these should connect to your Wii console. You will get better results if you use component video (3 RCA plugs on each end of the wire for video (Y,Pb,Pr); use a second cable with two RCA plugs on each end for audio.) The Component video is Input-4. The component video cable is usually not provided with the game console. There are 2 composite video inputs on the TV (these use one wire with 3 RCA plugs on each end of the cable for video (yellow) and audio (red and white)).

    I hope this helps.

    Perhaps you meant can it project sports *well*. Of course it can display any standard signal. If it can display TV and video games, it can display sports. However, the resolution and aspect ratio of the device is standard definition. So it is 4:3 and equivalent to VHS tape. If you have an HDTV at home and are expecting to be able to see the small print on the score graphics, forget it. But for the price, it does a great job of projecting a picture.

    Plasma tv burn in


    Hey napa15rt,

    Many manufacturers may suggest not using video game consoles in conjunction with plasma or projection TV's, due to the potential risk of image retention. Unfortunately, image retention (or "image burn") can be caused by any number of sources including letter-box formatting, test patterns, scrolling banners and even the heads-up displays of many video games.

    While some video game publishers may have taken this into consideration by including a "screen saver" of sorts for when the game is on pause, this cannot be guaranteed to apply to every game or console available.

    Generally, you may avoid image retention by limiting the amount of time that any image is displayed on your TV screen. Simply turning the TV off when you're taking a break can often be one of the best ways to do so.

    Additionally, please keep in mind that some Insignia TV models may offer a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (or ISM) that is designed to help prevent image burn. For more information on your TV model and the ISM feature, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or Insignia's website:

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron

    Home theater system connections


    Hi
    I have the same tv but my dvd surround is a toshiba, that shouldn't matter though. When I watch a dvd I go to component 2 which is where I have my dvd connected on the input of the tv when I watch tv and want the surround on I go to component 1 which is the tv input then on my dvd player I go to auxillary and I can watch tv in surround. I don't know the LG home theatre system but you should be able to select your inputs like between dvd, tuner, aux. Flip between them and you should get sound. hope this helps.
