Thanks again for your feedback, nbb1. So you're saying that you have the A/V offset at 110ms and the lag setting at 113ms? Man, those onkyos sure screw things up. The story I related about my sound system is precisely about an Onkyo, the 605. But in my case I only send audio to it, the video goes to the CRT and of course is lag free, so my settings are 30ms for the A/V offset (as the sound is coming later than the corresponding video) and 0ms for lag (as it's a CRT).
Well, it really is a relief to know that the lag is not caused solely by the kuro, as in your scenario the onkyo is an extra variable. No way of knowing how much lag the onkyo causes and how much extra the TV does.
One thing, though, have you tried running your tv directly from the console? you'd find your lag measurements go down and I think the drum fills and big rock endings will surely feel better . And congrats on being ranked in the 3000's, I'm finding it hard to complete the drums on, heh, "hard". If you do try it by linking the 360 to the kuro directly please share your calibration results, a lot of us fellow gamers would really appreciate it.
