I just upgraded to HD (+dvr) for my new LDC TV. Everything is fine but I notice a lag time of 3-4 seconds when changing fron one channel to another. Is this normal for the HD signal or is there an adjustment I can make?

Thanks

Where's your hurry?

If 3-4 seconds lagtime makes a difference to you, you need a psychiatric evaluation very badly.

Lets just say it's not "click click click". As to comparing the speed to Comcast cable, I think it may be just slightly slower. I'm not talking about basic cable, but the enhanced premium service.

It is what it is...

Than it used to be. Seems to get slower as time goes on. It may be due to downloads they are doing.Maybe some day they will upgrade it or when mine fails the replacement will be better.Takes about 7 seconds now even to go from one HD to another with Native on.

Pay no attention to Word Maestro .... he must be hitting the sauce again.

As for your question, it's possible the lag you are experiencing is when you're on sports-related channels. The new scoreguide feature causes a couple second lag in response time, which kind of sucks. I hope they fix it.

Turn native OFF.

It wastes time going from 480i to 720p or 1080i or from 1080i to 480i, etc....

You can pay no attention to me if you wish. But my question still remains. Is 7 seconds such a LLLLLOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGG delay?

timinator, yes it is normal. The hd recievers are slower than the SD ones.

Thats helpful:rolleyes:

Glenn has it right. Turn native off. While it still wont be instant, it speeds it up considerably
