Rear Projection Televisions & Old consoles & New consoles
What's the story with them? If I hook up a SNES to a rear projection television apparently damage could be caused to either the tv, the console or whatever game is in it at the time - I vaguely remember some warning in the SNES instruction manual about it along with the standard epilepsy warning when I first bought one back in 1994.
Did the old consoles work on rear projection televisions? I am getting one soon and am curious. What about the newer consoles such the current and previous generations? I have heard of no problems of a Nintendo 64 connected to a rear projection television, so I was thinking it was a one in a million chance sort of thing. A bit like the epilepsy warning - don't think I'm making fun of it - but I can't think of as many people I can ask about this as I can about epilepsy.
Thanks in advance guys.
I believe the consoles work with the rear projection. Though you should be careful of images being burnt onto the screen.
So.....does anyone know why a game needs "Progressive Scan Mode" to play on a high-def monitor? If it doesn't and I'm wrong, then you can kick me for being dumb again.....but I've gotten the impression that if a video game can't display in progressive scan, it won't display on a hi-def monitor properly. Meaning every old console I have would be useless if I got one of those 21st century screens. Is that true?
And Nintendo's epilepsy warnings get louder every year....you'd think if someone was epileptic, they'd know not to go near games in the FIRST place.

That's the problem as I understand it-- most games have at least one static image (a life bar, mini-map, HUD, etc.) that stays in the same place no matter what you're doing, and supposedly that inmage can get burnt into the screen if you play for extended periods.
