Samsung LN32C450 input lag!

by doomman328 / December 12, 2010 5:52 PM PST

I'm using HDMI with my PS3 on this TV, and with game mode off, The settings are all adjustible and it sounds fine, but the game itself is nearly unplayable, for instance, I over aim in Call of Duty and I do much worse. With game mode on, the game plays just fine, But the sound is terrible through my tv speakers. A lot of the time, voices are hard to hear and muffled behind other sound effects, Turning it up or messing with any ingame settings wont work because even then, the sound effects are louder than the voices. It does this because game mode forces you to use "movie" sound mode, which sucks, and you can't turn it off. Is there any way to make the response time better with game mode off? I refuse to buy a $500 surround sound system just because samsung is likely in partnership with sound companies to force us to buy this crap.

Samsung LN32C450 input lag!

doomman328,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having a problem with gaming. Unfortunately, there aren't any settings that I can offer that would change or manipulate the game lag. If the audio is having a hard time working correctly, even using an inexpensive audio setup and routing the audio from the game console directly to, say a bookshelf system, would be relatively inexpensive compared to purchasing a whole receiver setup.

The game lag is there to help cut down on the lag, but maybe that would help with the audio part.

Inexpensive, how? Wouldn't a PS3 require a nice reciver and a couple of hundred dollar speakers to even function? How would I even hook it up?

doomman328,

Well, you make a good point. "Inexpensive" is a relative term. I apologize if that sounded dismissive, it certainly wasn't intended to be. I was comparing it against the $500. figure for a receiver plus speakers system.

There are two ways that this can be done:

1. Stereo - two speakers connected to a bookshelf system's RCA input (usually labeled as "AUX") where the audio can come from. Your game console, if I'm not mistaken, came with an RCA jack adapter that fits into one of the proprietary jacks on the back of the console. By bookshelf system, I mean the all-in-one radios with two speakers (sometimes detachable for better sound). I suppose with all the i-feature packed systems out there, they're harder to find with AUX inputs, but that's one option. Those can be as inexpensive as $100, or might range up to $200.

2. Even smaller Home Theater "In a box" systems are out there that will take the optical audio signal straight from the game console to the speakers, and offers surround sound. There might be some sales this time of year, but yes, they can get expensive and wind up being a couple hundred dollars. But that's a surround system, too.

The point I wanted to make was that by outputting the audio from the game console, using either the RCA or optical option in the game console itself, you can bypass the audio in the TV and aim for a better audio experience that way.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
