    I read in my GCN manual that playing these console games on a RPTV can harm it if a still image is on there or something to that effect...

    Is this true ?

    I was planning to buy a nice 134cm LG RPTV but dont want to waste my money if the consoles i own could bugger it up ?


    Sorry if its been posted before, i tried a search but couldnt really come up with anything

    Cheers

    Not recommended, either for CRT RP or Plasma. Not worth risking- if screenburn occurs you're looking at three sets of tubes- not covered by warranty either.

    I would use a CRT TV as they seem to be OK, and use a CRT RPTV for DVD's.

    I have a CRT RPTV and afraid to use my consoles- I guess I could always use my Panny 28" Widescreen for that.

    imho,
    screen burn is found on crt tv`s, computer crt etc. as well, when a still image is transmitted for a prolonged period (thats why they have screen savers--even on dvd players).
    i think you will have more trouble from the tv channel logos than from the vast majority of hectic console games. but even so moderation is what is needed and a bit less contrast/brightness maybe.
