Why Do My X Box And PS2 Games Have A Time Lag On My DLP TV?

Last Update Date : Apr 19. 2018

 The time lag you experience when you play games on your DLP TV is caused by the electronic circuitry used to produce High Definition quality pictures. Picture data is momentarily stored in memory and processed to produce high quality video. When you are watching TV programs, the time lag is not an issue, but when you play games, the lag becomes noticeable.

The time lag is most apparent if you have your game console attached to the Composite or S-video inputs on your TV because the TV must do more processing to create high quality video from signals coming through these inputs. To reduce the time lag, attach your game console's video out to your TV's Component video inputs (Component 1 or Component 2). Also, if you attach your game to the Component video inputs, make sure you attach the audio cables from the game console to the audio inputs associated with the Component video input you are using.

Note: You may need extra cables or an adapter to connect your game console to the Component video input on your TV. See the owner's manual of your game console for additional information.

An example of a DLP TV's Component video and audio inputs is below:
