Depends.  Mine has PnP, but only if you are already using a tuner 
input.  With the component input, it is not available.  Live TV is best 
for sports, though, and PnP is especially nice for college football or 
baseball, where there is often more than one game on at the same time.  
I'm actually hoping to take advantage of the encode/decode delay this 
year, seeing as how the radio broadcast is often better than the TV 
commentators, and the radio has a longer delay that shifts the 
description of the action off of the video by a couple of seconds.  I 
think a judicious momentary pause should allow me to sync the radio 
sound to the TV video.  Far too esoteric an idea to build in, though!
