Hi again, Different expert here. According to my note, that particular model TV is a "motel" TV, and they are typically programmed to ONLY do certain functions when used in a motel (not including the MENU function). If this TV has been obtained as used and is now in your home, you will want to purchase a "Master Remote" - so that you can get access to the programming features. I have a link to a site where you can order such a remote >> CLICK HERE <<. If on the other hand the TV is still in use at a motel (and you are guest), you can TRY to see your game by tuning to channel 4 on the TV, and selecting VGA as a "source" (input). If that doesn't work, stay on channel 4 and try selecting OTHER sources - one of them SHOULD work for you. I hope this helps. Please let me know your results - when you can. If this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for helping you with this question.You should see some "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them.Thanks, ***** ***** .-(im)
