    I dont know if its my setup up, but i'm sure there are problems with timing/plasma processing signal. Im using a Pioneer 434... - the one without the tuner.

    If i play on a Portable my usual standard of crap provails. But if i use Plasma i move up into the ultra crap league :(

    Initially i thought it was the RF controllers, then because i was too close, but now think its something else.

    I'm cascading the Xbox through, DVD, Sky+, Netgem then into a JS RGB to Plasma convertor. - Would this cause delays ??

    Theres a whole range of inputs in the Plasma, VGA, DVI, and the one with lots of BNC's ? - the VGA does Sky etc. DVI does PC, so can i use the multi thing for the XBox ?

    Any suggestions appreciated as i'm doing v v poorly on XBox Live.

    It's a known issue, the dead zone, where it seems to take too long to respond to controls. I know of no cure, Pioneer are the worst culprits in my experience, for this and audio sync problems.

    I was worried that would be the answer.

    So i now have a state of the art living room, and cant play my XBox :(

    Suppose its probably ok for everthing except racing (my favourite genre)..

    I'm certainly not about to swap the Plasma..

    I had noted the audio delay, but seem to have cured this more by luck, and play the DVD-R's audio while watching the Sky+ output, this seems to inject just the right amount of delay.

    Off now to play my Xbox on the 14" portable in the Bedroom - how humiliating.
