This is my mom's TV, so I don't have a ton of time to play with it. I got some help with the camera settings and I'll try some more photos tonight.
I can't/won't pull here 36" CRT back up into the TV room (It must weigh 2x the 47" LCD). I might grab here little CRT out of the RV. What is the lag test and how do you want it setup? I do NOT see any lag in the audio/video from the DISH Vip722.
I also only have 1 "good" source for her TV (DISH Vip 722 connected with a 12' Monoprice HDMI cable-Premium 24AWG HDMI 1.3a). I also don't own an Xbox 360 or PS3 to test any kind of games.
It sounds like the CRT in your moms RV is a TV, correct? The test can only be done with a CRT monitor, unless that small CRT TV has a VGA or DVI input, which I highly doubt.
The lag test would require you to hook up the TV and CRT at the same time from the computer. Your video card would need either two VGA outputs, two DVI outputs, one of each, or you'd need a splitter. You then run the TV and CRT in dual-monitor mode and run a stop-watch program so that you can take pictures of the two screens with a camera on a high shutter speed setting. When you look at the times on the pictures, the difference between them is how much input lag the HDTV has. Typically, CRT monitors have 0ms of input lag, so that's why they are ideal for the test.
I understand if you are not up to it, as it does take a bit of time and you may not have all the components. It's just that these new 120Hz/240Hz TV's add a lot of input lag due to processing, even when game mode is enabled.
