Probably nobody with your same TV has seen your post. On my Panny 60ST50, I didn't have to do a thing.

Generally, don't turn on any additional processing such as 120hz, noise reduction, etc.

If your TV has Game Mode, try that.

Too many variables (AVR, display, other components, connections, uses, etc., etc.). Rather than asking for the "best" settings, I'd try focusing your questions on something more specific.

In the meantime, just trust that your PS3 set itself up fine for the time being. If you can see audio and video, that's a good place to begin. wink.gif

Here is honestly what I did. I calibrated my TV using the settings I found here, then tweaked with my Disney WOW Blu-Ray. I made sure all additional processing was turned off, but I do that for all program material, not just gaming. No 120hz, no sharpness, etc. End of story. And you can try Game Mode. But I mentioned that up above, what was wrong with what I said?

Game mode.
HDMI cables.
LPCM audio out.

Get an x-rite eye-1 colorimeter and get your tv colors setup perfect.

If you play Rock Band 3, get a Rock Band 3 controller with a calibration eye and have it calibrate your audio and video for the game.
(game mode really helps but the calibration eye will still be able to detect 0-40 ms of adjustments it needs to make)

I'm pretty sure the OP is asking for PS3 settings, not display settings.

IMO there is nothing to set on the PS3 specifically for gaming.

i recall a setting in there for color i believe. when i went from my 50" 720p tv to 65 1080, i was rolling through the options and noticed one of them said "limited". i changed that to the other option which i believe was "full"? made a big difference. then i went through every option i could find after that lol.

i cant remeber any of it for the life of me though without looking at it

Ask your ISF Pro. He should know how your PS3 should be set specifically for your TV.

There's nothing on the PS3 that will cause lag. Sounds like you have a lot of processing enabled on your TV. I sound like a broken record right about now... wink.gif

Even using LPCM (where the PS3 does the audio processing instead of the AVR) doesn't seem to affect PS3 performance.

So that's why you leave LPCM on (to get full benefit).

Like TornadoTJ says, nothing on the PS3 is causing that lag. Could be your display (if you have a lot of processing enabled). Could be your AVR or any other components processing video along the way. The source of your lag issue isn't your PS3, though.

As far as the color/white settings on the PS3, just go with what looks better. Simple.

Good point there, Confidenceman. I've seen video processing on a lot of receivers, and you might need to make sure it is all disabled. For example, my receiver can do upscaling and other types of video processing. It does introduce lag if it's on.

Oy. I really thought this would be a thread where you discuss the ways you can squeeze all the lag out of your PS3 Internet connection, so when you watch a MW3 killcam of your death, you don't notice the other player is operating in a reality that is three seconds ahead of yours.

Just keep talkin'. I'll let you know when you're right.

Here's your answer to that: Get a good ISP, make sure your speed you subscribe to is sufficient, and go hardwired. That's how to get the best internet performance out of your PS3. I'm pretty happy with my results... wink.gif Even with this, my upload is off by about 10mbps today, usually it's around 35.

So you're saying there's no difference in performance when it's recording all the movements of every player in every game for playback in movie mode Vs. turning that recording off?

Just keep talkin'. I'll let you know when you're right.

You asked how to squeeze the most out of your internet connection, not how to fine tune a specific game. wink.gif

You want to set it to limited. Full is for PC monitors. Also set super white to on.

For the poster as far as lag you should set up port forwarding on your router. Assign your PS3 a static IP address and go from there. portforward.com is a great website that shows you how.

I came...I saw...I bought an HDTV
