Check in your TV's settings for a selection called "Game mode" It will turn off the scaling chip in the TV(The PS3 will scale the image anyway) and remove the lag it was producing.

Often times there is lag between game systems and HD t.v.'s, caused either by the use of HDMI cables and or audio/visual lag. The severity of this depends on the game.

If a game has audio/visual lag problems, there should be an option to compensate for it in the options menu. If it is a problem with usage of HDMI cables, try using different cables. If that doesn't make a difference, then you'll have to use regular old A/V cables.

If you just bought it brand new, then return it for an exchange. Its not wise to keep an electronics appliance or game console that is having issues straight out of the box. Using your A\V (RCA) cables instead of an HDMI cable shouldn't be causing any lag, at least nothing that is significant enough to notice.

PS2 controller lag for rock band


On some home theater systems and TVs, there is a delay between what you press on the controller and what you see on screen.

There are three possible solutions:
1. In the options menu, you can "calibrate the lag". It may or may not work, but it will most likely reduce the lag.
2. If it's a HDTV, buy a PS3, with the PS3 version of the game, with PS3 controllers, and use a HDMI cable.
3. Play on a smaller, older SDTV (480i).

Lag between ps2, ps3 and LCD TV.


2 questions:
Are you using HDMI cable?
Have you tried your ps3 in any other HDTV?

Heres why I ask you this. PS3 has some compatibility issues with some TVs (or Tvs have it with ps3....that is controversial xD) so if you happen to be so unlucky to have bought an HDTV which ps3 has issues with, you`ll have a problem (as was my case)

In my case whenever I switch resolutions or enter a game the HDTV starts flashing between the ps3 screen and some blank screen with dots. I have to remove the hdmi cable and connect it again and it solves. :D

So please answer my 2 questions in order to discard some possibilities.

Time lag between Playstation 3 and LCD TV.


SOURCE: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=confrontation&thread.id=735278&view=by_date_ascending&page=2

If your playing with lag on your new HD LCD your at a competitive disadvantage! Everything you see happens seconds later than your opponent who has his/her settings right.
The fix:
1. Connect your PS3 using HDMI Input 2.
2. SELECT or RENAME the HDMI Input to PC. Already pointed out, but this does not make the majority of tv's run in PC mode.
3. On the PS3 start-up menu go to Settings---> Display ---->
Choose HDMI ----> DO NOT choose AUTOMATIC ----> SELECT CUSTOM ----->
4. Now, Select all the Resolution options EXCEPT 720p. This will force your games into 1080p mode. What it will also do is drop any game that doesn't have 1080i/p support into 480. Games like Burnout Paradise, Vegas 2, Heavenly Sword, NHL 08 and more will be dropped into SD (480) rather than HD. Your picture will be terrible. 720p is standard gaming resolution currently, 1080i/p is not.
5. Save and complete the display setup.
6. Turn off the PS3. Turn off the TV.
7. Turn on the TV. Turn on the PS3.
8. Complete! (Lag eliminated). Please spread this around!

*The key to eliminating ALL LAG is modern LCD's need to be in PC MODE (NOT GAME MODE) On many tv's, PC mode requires you to use a VGA or DVI connector. You'll either need to buy an HDMI adapter or an HDMI to VGA / DVI cable if that's the case.
and the Source MUST BE IN 1080p so that the TV can use it's NATIVE RESOLUTION.* Please, check your tv's native resolution. If you have a plasma that only does 720p, your native resolution is probably 720p. You do not need to follow these steps, it will only make things worse. If your tv's native resolution is 720p, obviously you want to keep your display settings at 720p on your PS3. If your native resolution is 1080i, you shouldn't go selecting 1080p. If your native resolution is 1080p on your TV, you need to be aware that removing 720p as an option will force many games into 480.

Keep these things in mind and remember that the steps above are far from a cure all solution. .

"Lag" during play


Have you tried playing the game with the controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cable? Also, just as a test, DISABLE the Internet connection option on the PS3's menu to see if it makes any difference. I found that for some reason some titles (namely Enchanted Arms) have been know to act erratically with an active Internet connection whilst playing.
