    Exclamation Marvel Pinball Epic Collection Vol.1 on Xbox One - Major Flipper Lag!

    Hi all!

    I have been searching the numerous forums and usergroups to find a solution to my problem but I can't seem to get an answer.

    My setup is: Xbox One (all system updates and patches installed up to 30th October 2017), Samsung 55" Smart TV, Denon AV Amp, wired Xbox One Controller

    I have my Xbox connected directly to the TV via HDMI2 (renamed as Game) then I have the audio via optical cable coming out of the TV and into my Denon AV amp.

    The issue I have is that any game I play in the collection has an irritating and visible lag between hitting the L/R shoulder or trigger buttons and the flipper actually moving. This is an almost impossible way to play these pinball games as reaction times need to be quick but the flippers are annoyingly slow.

    I have updated the firmware on the controller and all patches necessary on the Xbox One and I have been playing around with my TV settings but still can't seem to remove the annoying flipper lag.

    If there are any other pointers you can direct me too I would be most appreciative.

    Thank you in anticipation

    HI! Thanks for the reply...
    Yeah, we've put the TV in Game mode (and played around with a hundred other settings that may affect the performance) and configured the triggers to have a much lighter trigger activation so you only have to breathe on the triggers and they activate. Yes, it seems that this is the only game to have this lagg (although playing Halo and Fifa 18 it's very difficult to see if there's any lag between buttons and kicking/firing).

    Unfortunately I dont have another pinball game to see if it performs in the same way... (not sure I want to spend the cash on the game if it's going to perform the same way).

    Thanks again for the reply!

    HI again... Looks like it may have been a combination of 'Game' mode and running the Xbox thru my Denon AV Amp FIRST then into the TV. When plugged directly into the HDMI2 slot, that seems to have done the trick!

    Over the years, as much as I love my A/V receivers and amplifiers, well, over the years I have learned that game consoles work best when there is nothing between them and the TV With my Wii U, I havd a similar concern when running through a AV receiver. Worked perfectly when hooked to the TV directly.
