I just bought a 1080p HDTV, and a HDMI cable to connect my PS3 to it. Picture and sound work perfectly, however, and this is hard to describe, there is a "lag" that occurs when playing games. I push a button on the controller, and a half a second later the action occurs. What do I need to do/get?
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.

Check for an HDMI port
Check the back of your television for an HDMI port and refer to your owner's manual for your television's resolution. A resolution of 1080p offers the highest quality.
Most PS3 systems support 1.3 HDMI, but older systems may need a software update from the 1.1 or 1.2 version.
Disconnect all the cables and adapters from the back of your PS3, and then unplug your TV to reduce the risk of shock as you work.
Connect HDMI cable
Connect the HDMI cable. Reconnect the power cables on both the TV and the PS3 system.
Hold power button
Hold down the power button until the PS3 beeps and continue holding it for an additional five seconds until the system makes a second beep.
The Playstation 3 should detect the high definition cable and automatically adjust the settings to give you the best picture and sound possible.
Test the connection
Test the connection. If the HDMI cable isn't working, turn everything off and reconnect the original cables to manually change the settings.
Adjust the settings
Turn the system back on, select Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then HDMI. Repeat the process for your Audio Settings. You can now experience your games with the highest video and audio quality available.
hi, ur ps3's HDMI out is a full hd video (1080p). if u r tv does not support full hd this problem can occur. do one thing. connect the ps3 to any full hd tv and go to its video setup, then down scale its video resolution to 1080i. after that connect the ps3 to ur tv. u will surely get video. ok
So I did finally find a solution....I returned my PS3 for a brand new one. Turns out it was my PS3. This is what I did...I bought a blue ray player, I connected the hdmi to my TV....no problem. So it wasnt my TV or HDMI cord. Returned the blue ray player for my money back, and returned my PS3 for a new one. Problem solved. Seems like alot of work, but it was the only way I could troubleshoot my issue. Just for kicks, try using another HDMI cord. I went through 3 different kind. Good luck.
It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.
a DVI Connection does not transmit sound, so you will need a seperate audio cable.
Have you changed the settings in the ps3 and your tv's input to HD signal or 720 DPI, do not choose 1080i or 1080P as DVI does not support those high settings.
