If you want to get the best possible picture while gaming without the lag on the HX929, I suggest this. Turn Cinemotion to Auto 2 and Motionflow to Clear or Clear Plus, your preference. You can turn reality creation to Low if you want as well. I don't. Keep all the other settings as normal. This will help ALOT with the lag without sacrificing an amazing picture and graphics when gaming. It works for me.
Yeah, this helps...but it really isn't the same as setting the TV i/p Conversion Preference to "Speed" (which is really at the heart of of the Game Scene). Sure, you can get used to any lag really, most people do...but I immediately can tell when the i/p conversion is on "Quality". I've tried exactly what you posted and it just isn't enough reduction in lag for me.
I really don't see a huge difference in the Game scene though (visually). I've spent a long time flipping back and forth between settings for games. Sure, there is some extremely minor deterioration, but nothing worry about at least on PC and PS3 (for me). The Wii is the only thing that looks worse in Game scene. This is likely because the Wii is sub-HD to begin with and really needs more settings on the TV to wash away the jaggies and other mess that the Wii produces.
I play everything on "Speed" though, I really notice the difference in lag if I've switch away from it. I actually don't notice the difference visually, but it feels like someone put molasses in my mouse if it is on "quality".
Really, for me the reduction in lag is by far the lesser of two evils. Certainly this will vary though from person to person as some people will want all the extremes of the visual fidelity over the reduction in lag.
