My Samsung TV has a game mode but it still suffers from terrible audio lag using the HDMI alone. So much so the game just is unplayable with this method.|
I've tried the xbox component cable (directly to TV with audio) but there was a lag even with game mode on and I found it hard to play.
I've also tried the VGA cable and hooked up the red/white audio parts to a hi-fi via it's AUX inputs and that was fine, just not as sharp picture as the HDMI.
In the end I bought a 3rd party (read cheap) audio adapter and use that to send the audio to the hi-fi with aux ports on the back whilst using hdmi for the video (turned TV volume down to zero). Luckily the hi-fi is right next to my telly so it kind of suit me well. This way I get minimal lag and a nice fuller sound, although I'm not sure the neighbours would agree
EDIT: In summary analogue external speakers/stereo seems to be the way to go.
