Virtually all Hi-Def TV's, including this one, has a composite input (the RCA jacks), and will work fine. You may also want to consider getting a Blu-ray player. You'll get a better picture and it will play all your old DVD's as well as any Blu-ray you purchase.

answer 1
Be careful on this - I go the E422VLE when I thought I was getting the E422VL. The VLE does not have the separate yellow/red/white jacks shown in the picture for the VL. You are supposed to plug it into the component jacks - so yellow cable goes into the green jack.

The wii video appears to have a lag in the that is very slight, but it means you can't effectively play games. The delay in video means that the jumps and shots happen an instant too late.

You have a couple options depending on your computer.

1) It has a standard SVGA connection (Super Video Graphics Adapter). 15 pin trapezoid port.
2) A/V (Audio Video) inputs. For cards that are equipped with S-Video (Round port) You can get an adapter to change it to RCA A/V plugs.
3) I beleive there is a USB adapter that will allow you do use the on TV USB ports.

VGA + audio or with a combined HDMI cable, depending on your PC.

answer 6
Yes you can. There are two possible ways.
You can use a cable to connect the monitor of your computer directly to your tv, there is and output named RGB. Look for the right cable usually has to different ends, one to fit the TV the other one fits the monitor.
Then also you can use any if the three out HDMI outs to connect directly to you PC tower. Your TV also has an Ethernet out that connects you to the internet, so you wont need the connection to the computer.

Depends, Its not the TV its self. IS this when watching NetFlix? Is it a DVD Movie? On some channels on Direct TV, they dont have the sound synched with the picture very well, even on a standard DEF TV CRT tube type, it has done it for me too. However I have not seen this with my TV. Everything is working perfectly. Possibly a bad built in digital decoder/encoder? May want to contact Vizio.
