The lag was in the TV. The Samsung have a setting called “Game Mode”. Turn that on and the lag disappears. Pinball is fun again.
As some of you have seen om my Twitter lately I have begun my HD convertion. I tried my new TV for the first time today and it is amazing. I have all HDMI going to my AVR and one HDMI to the TV, finally an optical SPDIF from the TV to the AVR for TV sound. All is fine and awesome untill I start my current favourite game, Zen Pinball. There is a lag somewhere. When I press L1 or R1 there is a 1/10 delay until I see and hear them react. Haven’t have time to test any more games.
I will try to see if I can disable all processing of the image to see if that helps, next I’ll try to connect the HDMI directly to the TV and finally I will try to connect it to my parents Sony HDTV.
I got my PlayStation3 yesterday and… well, I let the picture speak for itself.
