    HDTV Audio Video delay?

    Alright so I got a new LG 37" LCD TV, and I couldn't help but notice that whenever I play Guitar Hero, I can never hit the notes as well as I used to.

    I also noticed it when playing FPS's like COD4 and the Orange Box.
    I would flick the right thumb stick and it would delay a tiny bit in-game.

    That reminded me of GH2's HDTV lag calibration, so I tried it out and I figured out that my HDTV (at an average of 5 tests) is off by 120 Ms

    Is this normal for an HDTV? Or at least yours in general?
    Because I'm debating whether I should trade it in or not...

    Mine HDTV is just slightly ( almost impossible to notice if you dont really focus to it ) behind with games, but then again its normal with movies.
    I would actually like to know if this is just something every HDTV has, or what is the reason behind it..

    Mine isnt that bad that i wouldnt be able to get the notes straight with GH3, but its still noticable when really, like really focusing to it.

    Do you have it hooked up through the component cables, or are you using the composite red/white/yellow ones?
    If you're still using the composite, try getting some component cables and try switching your xbox to 720p. If that doesn't help then your TV may just have a really slow response time, which is strange if it's a pretty new model.

    Well, i have my PS3 hooked with a HDMI, so it should have the best outcome, so maybe i just have a shitty TV :/
    But then again, my problem is so minor that i dont even need to care about it, so, yah.

    Althought i propably buy a new TV soon, as the one i got now shows TV shows themself with a horrible quality, and there alot better technology around already, oh wait, this is offtopic, yey ?

    Thanks for the help guys, but I tried everything I could to keep my LG, but in the end the TV itself was the culprit:

    1. Yes I used the HDMI cables
    2. Yes I did switch the brand of cables from the upstairs
    3. I switched the 360's even D:

    So yeah, it's a shit TV, So I brought it back and traded it in for a Samsung LN-t4042H. It had 5ms response time and it's 40"

    Surprisingly it was cheaper, so I bought Rock Band with the money I had left over. Works like a charm <3
