There is no universal answer for the lag except maybe to get a PC Monitor or SD CRT TV if lag is a factor.
I'm sure most of us have a few HDMI cables lying around, I know I do.
I'm spoiled due to always having TN/S-IPS screens or a CRT. For example my LG L246WP-BN(Computer monitor) has 0-16ms input lag, most of the times zero.
I don't want to hi-jack but..
Does anyone know what the black levels are like on S-IPS Alpha screens?
I can't find any measurements in Cd/m2.

A couple of not so good pictures attached
Holy crap, the size of that room dwarfs the 46"

Yup HDMI's great, 1:1 just means no overscan or blurring.
For VGA you put a sharp image up in the screen and then use the Auto Adjust in the menu.

You need to do it with VGA because the TV needs to know where the image should be placed in relation to the physical pixels on the screen. Sticking something like that up lets the Auto Adjustment do its job perfectly(most of the time).
I also want to point out that this is a great TV, and that the things I'm pointing out are minor annoyances. If the TV was $300 cheaper I wouldn't be complaining at all. Its just that the B750 is their top of the line normal LCD(as opposed to the LED offerings). And these stupid problems lie should have been picked out by quality control and their engineers before hand. They are all very easy to fix.
Most of the things are software related. Including the input lag, and the thin line drawing problem I pointed out earlier.
The others such as the bezel covering part of the screen or the clicking/humming power supply are easy fixes.
Its so sad that they are too lazy or too cheap to notice/fix these problems. It reminds me of the super loud buzzing that comes from the PN50B850/860 which they say is 'Normal'. I mean how can you let something like that go into production?
And then there's the panel lottery which is a horse of a completely different color.
