Do video games ruin televisions?
On many older TVs, leaving a single image on the screen for too long will result in "burn-in" in which the picture is literally etched into the screen. Newer sets are specially designed to prevent this. Leaving a video game on pause while you go out for dinner (and forgetting to turn off the tube) may very well cause this. Unfortunately, several parents don't realize that screens have improved, so as a result, for fear of screen burn-in, these parents won't let their kids play Nintendo on that brand-new high-definition TV in the den. Instead they're stuck with the boring old black-and-white TV with a screen so tiny you have to squint just to see which way Mario's facing. The truth is, the new TV is actually more resistant to burn-in than the old one. Moral: Always turn off your TV when you're not using it!

Answer . becouse the ad people gave money to the people to say video games are bad and not T.V. OR!!!!!!!!!!! I have no idea what the heack i am talking about but i like the frist thing i said.
if the console you are talking about is the ancient dial controlled game, i can help point you in the right direction. the first thing that is quite opvious is you plug the coaxial cable into the back of the tv in the "arial in" inlet. once this is in you can turn it on and you should be able to hea…r the ball bouncing around, as the game has inbuilt speakers in the main controller. i am quite sure that the game has a set channel you can tune to to get the game to work, although i can remember having to manually tune our old tv to get it happening... i think there was a sticker on the back of the main unit saying what channel you need to turn to. i can find out what my parents unit says and see if it works for you too. the version they have is one of the first versions as far as i can remember, so it may not be the same for a latter model version, but who knows! hope this helps!

The answer seems to be two part. If you have an old CRT type of TV screen then the answer is yes. If a static image is left on for extended time periods then it is possible for "burn in" to occur. If you have purchased a television in the last few years then most likely you will have no problem beca…use the LCD, LED, and DLP HDTV's use a different technology. ( Full Answer )
nope, it'll work just like a regular tv. i have an LCD, and it woks just fine with my systems.
Depends on what type of TV you have. There is a chance with some TVs (Mostly CRT and old style Projection) that while playing games with HUD(Heads Up Display), or other objects in which their position on the screen doesn't change, an effect called burn in can happen. In which the image is littera…lly burned into the screen from many hours of play. Which results in a ghost image being visble even when not playing the game and in some cases as the tv is turned off. TVs that used LCD or Plasma are much less likely to have this happen. ( Full Answer )
A Sharp Aquos. To elaborate further: The best TV to play video games on are generally Plasma TV's with their high refresh rates and ability to display fast motion for games with minimal blur or lag. This is especially helpful with timing-sensitive video games. LCD TV's are second to Plasma… in those areas. A Sharp Aquos is an LCD, however certain LCD models have built-in "Game Modes' to handle fast motion video games better than other LCD sets. To see a better explanation and specific see the link below. ( Full Answer )
Yes you can but wouldn't it be easier to play games in front of your tv?
hdtvs that are 1080p i prefer samsung and sony except for Guitar Hero because you have to calibrate the lag .
Staring into a TV (witch has a cathoderay-tube) or a game (witch has an LCD screen sometimes) can give you a headache from eyestrain (especially if you have had a seizure in the past). Plus, MOST of what's on t.v and in games is mindless garbage, souly for entertainment...........but not always ;)
Its all based on the type of system xbox 360 there is one built in for some games like halo and C.O.D 4
no more than you can by watching TV. eventually it will get old and stop working but video games wont be the cause.
With big TVs it requires you to actually move your eyes/head to see information; you have to look all around. On a small TV, all of the information, pretty much the whole screen is in your vision all at once.
Could there be a more difficult question? A tv lets you watch a large variety of things(the downside being commercials and the endless stream of re-runs), and video games let you control much of what happens in it and can entertain you long after the good shows end(the downside is the plot never cha…nges and the gameplay isn't always good (like the poor gameplay in movie-game titles)).

Every video game console is different, and it must be a console. A standard video game console has a power cord, which is a cord that connects into a big black box, and then another extending cord that should connect into the wall for power supply, and three colored cords; red, yellow, and white.… Find the red, yellow, and white plugs on your television set, and connect red to red, yellow to yellow, and white to white (some TV's are different and require a mixed combination, meaning the same colors won't go to the same color, but this happens rarely). After this, it should work. ( Full Answer )
yes, but not always. the "mess up" is a thing called burn in. it's whan a picture gets stuck on the screen and won't come out. the wii has burn in reduction to keep the picture from burning in.
A tv that you probably should not play on is a small one because there are things like hidden secrets you would be able to see on a big tv rather than a small tv.
A TV without an input is a box that shows static. If you mean only an arial input, then you'll need a new TV. If you mean because the input is currently in use by another appliance then you can either unplug the other input or use a splitter. Radio Shack sells a small box called a RF MODULATOR that …will convert video from your game box to a radio frequency (tv channel) that can be plugged into the antenna connector on your tv set. Just plug in all the cables and switch the tv channel selector to the correct channel. ( Full Answer )

Things called Capture Cards are your answers. Things from a "Dazzle DVC100" to a "Happauge 1212" are little boxes that you take the output cords (audio and video) and plug them into the system, from there advanced systems (like the happuage) will have two output locations. One is the USB output whic…h you plug into your computer, then with the software you would record. And two the output cords (either HDMI or Composite) would plug into your TV. ( Full Answer )
it would depend on the game on computer games that are mmorpgs then the game
Absolutely not. In fact, some people say that plasma TVs are better suited than an LCD for a TV that will primarily play videogames.
Video games inhance your eye-hand coordination skills. Next to that,it is the same as rotting your brain watching television.
It depends what kind of projection TV you have. I have never heard of ANY issues with this and I have a WII we use on one. It's a blast! Just do not throw the remote into the TV!
Video games can be played on any television with a compatible input. However, if they are played on a plasma TV, there is a small risk of plasma burn. The effect is caused by static images being shown on the screen for long periods of time. It is seen as a faint ghost image that is overlaid on other… images. The effect is normally only seen if high contrast and bold images are shown on the screen. As most modern video games have moving backgrounds and low contrast text, the fault is rarely seen. Plasma burn has become less of an issue as plasma technology has been developed since they were introduced some years ago. Although you don't need to be too concerned about the problem, it is worth reading the user manual and complying with the manufacturer's recommendations. ( Full Answer )
Playing a video game with a console connected to the TV, such that the game appears on the screen, cannot damage the TV. Playing video games while actually sitting on your TV could indeed ruin it, as TVs are not intended to be used as seating. If you suspect someone has been sitting on your TV while… playing games, you might want to ask them to stop doing that. ( Full Answer )
No, playing video games does not rot your brain. In fact, it helps your brain. Your reflexes become sharper and you can think faster than people who don't play them. You can really tell a difference. I'm not sure about tv though. If you mean a video game, no, but if you mean watching sitcoms and mov…ies and tv shows, I'm not to sure. But in my opinion, you learn a lot about the world from tv. Yeah, they exaggerate stuff, but a lot of that can be applied to real life. Make sure you do these activities in moderation though. Too much of a good thing can be bad. ( Full Answer )
in TV you just watch it and nothing else but in video games you are using a joy stick etc. and watching the graphics on the TV
you need something in which the cable at the back of your console can use to connect to your screen

This question does not have an objective answer. They are twovastly different media forms. This would be like asking ifsculpture is better than painting.
Video games and TV are just as unhealthy as the other. No matter if one takes more "brain power" or not or are "more difficult to finish" or not, you're still sitting down, still not moving around, sitting on a couch with your game control in your hand and not exercising. An exception, though, is …the Wii games that make you very active in the living room or den and make you exercise. ( Full Answer )
Sesures and epileptic fits (Extremly Rare! And only if you have a condition ) also head aches and a lack of social life.
Well, after a long while playing video games, typically my thumbs feel like they're going to break off, my butt may hurt and my eyes water up approximately every three seconds, causing temporary blindness. Gaming can also cause insomnia, geekiness, lethargy, apathy, loss of significant other due to …frustration and neglect, death from starvation or dehydration due to personal neglect, body odor for similar reasons ... it's a long list. Also I guess if you suffer from epilepsy it may cause seizures. But mainly the other stuff. ( Full Answer )
Playing video games on a modern plasma screen will not ruin the display. There are some precautions that can be taken to prevent 'burn-in' on a plasma display. As long as you mix up the game titles or use the TV to watch television broadcasts or movies, there will be no constant image in one area …of the screen that can cause 'burn-in'. Don't leave a paused game on the screen for more than an hour, and don't pause DVD's for more than 20 minutes. Be sure to configure your game console to display the image across the whole screen at the maximum resolution your TV will support (1080p, if you can). ( Full Answer )
When you watch TV your mind is listening to conversations but when you play video games your mind is focused on playing the game and interested on how to reach a level or win a game.

Everybody loves video games in all types but on the televison you can't play games like virtual worlds you can play sonic super mario the games are very unique and only technical artists can design video games because they are physical video game experts I hope my answer helped you if you trust me t…humbs up. ( Full Answer )
No. Even if some visual elements of the game are static and remain fixed on the screen for hours and hours of play, LED televisions do not experience the "burn in" that old CRT ("tube") televisions did.
Go play videogames. Go watch TV . Go get some exercise . . The answer is neither. If you really wanted to get exercise, you have to get off the couch. Maybe you may burn 1 calorie playing video games, but it still doesn't matter for you will still eat food and gain weight. So, if you really w…ant the extra burned calories (or you need it), go do something physical. Go run or walking... both of those are free and you barely need any experience. Just get off the couch. Go play videogames. Go watch TV . ( Full Answer )
They're connected to a TV by cables such as RCA, HDCOMP, and HDMI. HDMI can play both the video and audio aspects of the gaming console whereas the RCA and HDCOMP can play both but they have lot more plugs.

Neither occupation could be described as heathly, in that they havebenefits to the health of the person persuing them. The closest to a health benefit you might get is psychological, butboth systems could be argued to have both positive and negativepsychological impact. For instance playing a batt…lefield videogame on the positive sidemay have a minor health and developmental benefit in increased handto eye co-ordination, but negative impact in the subject materialfrom a psychological standpoint. The same is true of a TV program. Education may be enhanced whichmay lead to a better lifestyle (for instance watching and engagingin an excercise program), but watching a film featuring a homicidalmaniac may have a negative psychological impact. Therefore neither system has any major immediate influence overimproving physical health. Both systems can have negative impact(Doing either rather than going outside and excercising) and bothcan have minor to severe psychological impact (If it didnt nietherwould have a ratings system).

Most likely the game is worse. It depends on what your standards,who you ask and how you see the problem. A TV program will end in a short while but a game goes on and letsyou restart right away if you have to. A TV lets you watch sex and violence but a computer game lets youhave a participating rol…e in it. ( Full Answer )
