800 dollars down the toilet
Dolphin is the name of the GC/Wii emu.
Look through the settings and see if there's a "gaming mode" on it.
My friend had the same problem, his TV had input delay for his games. All he did was switch the mode and it worked fine.
Is it a Samsung? Open up the source menu, do a long press on the input and select the rename options. Choose PC from the drop down menu and things should happen.
Yes, it's undocumented and dumb, but it helps a fuckload
Buyer beware, dude.
We have the internet, we have ways of looking up input lag and shit. You should have asked here or /g/ before sinking your money
Do they even make "dumb" TVs anymore? What's the point of having built-in Netflix and shit when you could EASILY get the same from your game console or PC?
thats what kind of tv my friend has, it feels like i can count a whole second before i see movement on the screen. I've also tried game mode but it didn't help
>Buying a 55" tv for the fucking Wii of all consoles
>What's the point of having built-in Netflix and shit when you could EASILY get the same from your game console or PC?
Using less electricity by having less electronics turned on.
whats stupid is he bought an 800 dollar tv and uses av cables on his console. if you can afford a tv that expensive, surely you can buy fucking component cables.
i hope that tv breaks or short circuits before you can return it
Put the TV in game or PC mode, should be in the menu somewhere.
This seems to be a tv thread so I'm gonna go ahead and ask something.
I've recently noticed that my TV has a perfect rectangle that looks darker than the edges, like if I had gone into Photoshop and placed a 40% opacity black rectangle in the middle of the screen. Is my TV dying or what? It's a pretty old Vizio
I didn't buy it, it was my mom's and she gave it to me a couple years ago. So far it has been a very good TV, and I believe it has close to 10 years but I really don't remember.
I just want to know what it might be
I remembered I had some unopened Wii Component cables and I replaced the a/v with those.
Now the lag is still noticeable but it's reduced to about half.
Also I misremembered, the TV was more like 600 not 800. I bought it 2 years ago.
Fuck smart TVs running an "android" OS. I'd love to have just a screen with no processing. Hopefully my grandma will die soon so I can have her little CRT TV in her room.
>Hopefully my grandma will die soon so I can have her little CRT TV
Jesus fucking christ. You would rather have your grandma fucking DIE instead of just picking up a Trinitron at a thrift store for 5 fucking dollars?
Your grandmother is worth less than 5 bucks to you?
