Hi guys. I've got an LG plasma 50 fed by Optimum cable to a digital converter. Comes w.a Cablevision remote (not sure if that's pertinent, just giving as much info as possible). When I change the channel there is an intolerably long delay of 3 seconds - how can I eliminate or reduce it?


I see a similar thread in which the author 'rest the unit' that fixed the issue but what am I resetting - the box, remote, or TV - and how do I do it?!


Thanks for your help!

Do you have your STB set up to output native resolution? There may be a delay in the TV needed to resynch on different resolutions as you change channels.

Eh, sorry, not sure what an STB is
I see an STB button on my LG controller (that does nothing when I hit it) but nothing in the menu/settings about what you mentioned.


The delay is w.every change if that helps. Also, I have this screen's little brother 42" at another house running cable w.no external converter and there's no delay at all so I wouldn't have expected this one to act differently. But what do I knw about these things?!

Set Top Box, aka your cable box.

Have just gone through the box's settings and found nothing near STB or seemingly related to what we're dealing with. Can you tell me generally under what section/area the setting would be?

Thx
