Not really with a newer tv. The best thing to do is get yourself a CRT TV and use that to play your retro consoles on. Thats the set up I have and it works great.

Like Tasuki said, get a CRT tube tv. Zero lag, better PQ and you'll get a greater dose of Nintendo Nostalgia vs playing it on a modern HDTV. :p Anyways, i have no idea what the funk is going on with your plasma, the only possible thing i can think of is that Donkey kong and the crew are throwing a rave party inside your TV. You could post this in the AVS plasma forums. you'll get an answer pretty quick!

For starters you should be displaying your SNES games in 4:3/Fullscreen. ;)

Some how I knew @Waveboy was going to pop into this thread.

Yeah all my consoles from the NES to the Wii are hooked up to my CRT TV. The only systems I have hooked up to my Plasma is the Wii U and the Xbox 360.
