    I just ordered my 57HX81 and was wondering if I can use my Playstation 2 on this TV I remember in the past that using a game system on a rear projection TV could damage it. Does this still stand? Can I use Playstation 2 on my 57HX81 without damaging it or voiding the warranty? From what a gather, it would be a burn in issue of you left the system on pause but if you did not leave it one pause would there be any problems? Any advice would help- thanks

    Greetings
    Typically ... systems like the PS1/2 present their entire game image in a windowbox. YOu see a black border on all sides.
    So regardless of what is happening on screen, you always have the static box in view. Over time, this is the main cause for crt burn ... aka uneven wear on the tubes.
