Hey guys, I have been reading for about 7 hours straight now about HDTV input lag and first I would like to thank you for taking so much time to really analyse and explain this phenomenon that is plaguing our gaming experience each and every day. There is one answer that I am still looking for a yes/no kind of answer that I haven't quite found yet on the subject. You see the problem here is that I am a music rythm buff, just can't get enough of pretending to be a virtuoso without having so suck at the real thing. My setup is a Samsung LN40A750 and my music rythm needs are done trough a PS3. I know that it would be much more simpler with a Xbox 360 since everything is in 1080p at all time but I'm already 400$ into downloadable content on my PS3 so I can't really go back now...
From my understanding of the phenomenon I have 2 main ways to reduce or eliminate the imput lag which are:
1) HDMI2 + Game mode (which on a PS3 that is native at 720p with this game should lower it to somewhere around 31 ms if I am not mistaken)
2) HDMI2 + PC renaming trick and VGA to HDMI cable (which should almost eliminate it if I can get the resolution to be upscaled to 1080p if again I am not mistaken)
Just so you know I don't care about picture quality, I just want to have fun and play the music on queue. So my guess is that I should go for option 2. Though to make option 2 work properly I would need to upscale the signal to 1080p right? So my question that I can't seem to find a straight and clear answer to is:
Do I just need to get a cable in order to make it work or do I need to get something like a HDFury2 dongle or DVDO Edge box in order to have my signal upscaled then converted from HDMI source to VGA? Also from what I seemed to get is that the HDFury2 dongle doesn't upscale but just convert what it's being fed. Am I right?
Also, if I need to some kind of accessory or box to have my signal forcefully upscaled, what is my cheapest option?
Well, this about sums up my inquiry on the subject. Thanks a lot for everything and keep up the more than awesome work!
