Ok - back to gaming...
Had really bad (for CoD Black Ops.. could not tell with wii other other non fps games) input lag with Component. (again old Xbox360) even with game mode on.
Yesterday I bought a non-MS brand Xbox VGA connector (fifteen vs thirtynine) I hooked it up changed to 1920x1080 in Xbox settings.. and played.(had the TV in game mode etc -- some options like just scan dont work..assume since it is 16/9...so redundant ..
I assumed that 1920x1080 would reduce any processing the TV is doing the most..so did not try other resolutions..
Totally totally better... I don't have objective testing results..but I can say it cut whatever was happening enough so that I don't notice.
Issue... when I first started playing I had this GREEN static thing come on the screen from top to bottom then went back to normal after about 1-2 seconds... I was like @%@%@? Then it happened once in the game... So I went to xbox setting...they have 3 levels and I picked the normal one .. then for about an hour last night - no issues played great thought all was well with the world.
This morning my son played Star wars lego and the green noise/static jumble happening like 10 times in an hour...
SO... Anyone had issues with VGA?? I havent a) tried a computer.. b) tried other rez's c) did I make a mistake saving money with the non-MS VGA.. I will go and swap for the real one...
Also - Netflix works great..nicer than my xbox or other dvd player gui etc.
BUT-- I notice that when you are in the smart screen and start netflix it goes to non-local dimming..with way too much light/corner flash etc.. I was thinking that I could NOT change the screen settings when in Netflix.. but once you are watching a movie.. you can change it - it brings up a differnet option box and movies looked way better.
I will say that if it wasnt for the local dimming which seems to get rid of the flashlighting totally for me I wouldnt keep it.
I will post the result with new MS VGA connector asap!
