Re: 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: http://www.insignia-products.com/default.aspx Hope this helps you out.

Yes, you can. Modern Plasma, and LCD, TV's don't suffer from the kind of burn-in you used to hear about. There are times when the pixels can become persistent (looks like burn-in) but these pixels will turn back to normal after a short time of normal television use.
So, yes, you can definitely use your awesome 50 inch TV to play video games, :).
if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..
Found that video 1 and video 2 switching does not work. The switching IC was HOT!. Then found a third video input works but no sound. Hooked -up sound output of DVD player to amplified loudspkr and it works, I hate to throw away a 2 year-old plasma TV when TV and cable still works.
Thanks for the offer anyway.
We just upgraded from a 32" LG tube tv to a 46" Insignia LCD and had the same problem with our Wii and PS3. For us, we just switched the TV settings DCM (digital clear motion) function. We keep it on high for movies and TV shows and turn it completely off when playing Wii and PS3 games. Hope this helps!!
