Nope. I adjust the settings to where I like them for everything, be it TV or games. I rarely touch the settings after that.

I do, however, label the inputs.

No...
I think that might have been just a feature that stuck from the old days of cathode ray tubes when people thought their NES would permanently burn everything into the screen.

@the people who don't know what it does

It usually eliminates some input lag at the expense of some of the post processing done by the TV, so it might look worse.

Yes I label each input and change the mode for each input if possible. If not possible I just leave it as is.

I've never had any input lag with my TV in any setting.

None that you have noticed.

Might be more apparent if you play FPS games (on the PC!!) on your TV, where the input lag is very apparent.

Well, I don't hook up my PC to my TV and the only first person shooters I have console wise are on my Wii so...

If there is input lag and it's so small that one doesn't notice it, why should it be a problem?
