    Seen this on my tv and have tried it a few times but see no difference, does it work for anyone else?
    Thanks

    I thought that on the panny plasmers the response time was very quick anyway, so didn't think game mode did much. But on larger LCD/LEDs, I though these TV had bigger issues with lag, so gaming mode is essential.

    it doesnt speed up picture processing in the way you think

    it gives a basic picture so the xbox doesnt waste time processing the picture to suit your personal taste.

    it doesnt make any difference to me as my 40 + brain cant process the speed up it gives you

    I used it once. All I noticed was high contrast and vibrant colour. I tweak all the modes until they end up looking about the same...which defeats the object of having separate modes, really!

    Is there a callibration disc you can get purely for getting the optimum picture for games?

    Unless you have a delay from you pressing the button on the pad to the screen actually doing it ( input lag ) I would not bother using it. Simple reason is it takes detail out of the picture and actually gives off a worse picture!

    DVE, a proper calibrated source is a proper calibrated source, it shouldn't matter it's for games.

    There is an app on the Marketplace called TV calibration I believe (around 240-280MSP) which lets you do a very basic calibration.

    I think they do a free version too so might be worth looking at though don't expect miracles!

    Most tv modes help produce the best from film and tv, they usually do the opposite for gaming. That's why there is a game mode.
