I have a inquiry for those of you SXRD owners who also happen to play video games. Page 82 of the SXRD manual states that: "Direct mode and Game Mode and not available when watching 480p and 720p sources..."
As I understand it, the SXRD has no noticeable video lag with the Xbox 360 because of the high quality 720p or 1080i signal the 360 outputs (which certainly doesn't require as much processing as 480i). For 480i signals, Sony has implemented a Game Mode which bypasses much of the time-intensive processing. This Game Mode addresses some of the older systems (PS2, GameCube, etc) though these systems can also sometimes output in 480p. The upcoming Nintendo Wii has a native output resolution of 480p.
Are any of you video gaming owners running any video game systems at 480p on an SXRD? Is there any video lag for precision games (dancing games, first person shooters, etc.)? My fear is that 480p is the worst case video game scenario for the SXRD. It requires the most intensive upscaling (as opposed to 720p and 1080i), and doesn't have any special Game Mode to bypass the processing for 480p.
I would appreciate any SXRD wisdom you folks could impart upon me.
