Rocksmith 2014 Edition Television Support

GENERAL TIPS: regardless of your setup, the following quick tips will help optimize your experience

1. Make sure your system is set to match your HDTV’s native resolution (1080p, 720p, etc.).
2. If your HDTV has a PC or Game Mode, select it. (For more information, check your HDTV’s manual).
3. If your HDTV does not have a PC or Game Mode, access your HDTV’s options menu, disable image scaling, and turn off all processing effects.

A NOTE ABOUT HDMI: HDMI format carries both video and audio, but run the largest risk of producing audio latency. We never recommend using only an HDMI OUT connector to play Rocksmith 2014. If your configuration is using only an HDMI OUT connector, consider using a separate cable to output the audio separately.

A NOTE ABOUT OPTICAL AUDIO: We do not recommend using an optical output for playing Rocksmith® 2014 on Xbox 360 or PlayStation®3 system, as it can introduce additional latency when compared to those systems’ analog connections. Thanks to hardware and software improvements inherent to Xbox One and PlayStation®4 system, however, we do recommend using optical audio output on the most recent systems.

EXPERIENCING AUDIO LAG?

FOR XBOX ONE

Optimal Setup: The following diverts audio output separately, not through the HDTV.
HDMI Cable + Optical Audio to External Audio
  • An HDMI cable alongside an optical audio cable: the optical audio carries audio to an external audio system (sound system receiver, headphones, computer speakers, etc.) separately while the HDMI cable carries video directly to the HDTV.
  • It’s important to avoid running the audio signal through the HDTV.

WARNING: Use optical audio to connect Xbox One directly to a separate sound system. Using an optical audio connection from your HDTV to an external audio system may still result in audio latency as the audio signal is sent through the HDTV.


 

FOR PLAYSTATION 4

Optimal Setup: The following diverts audio output separately, not through the HDTV.
HDMI Cable + Optical Audio to External Audio
  • An HDMI cable alongside an optical audio cable: the optical audio carries audio to an external audio system (sound system receiver, headphones, computer speakers, etc.) separately while the HDMI cable carries video directly to the HDTV.
  • It’s important to avoid running the audio signal through the HDTV.

WARNING: Use optical audio to connect PlayStation®4 system directly to a separate sound system. Using an optical audio connection from your HDTV to an external audio system may still result in audio latency as the audio signal is sent through the HDTV.

  • WARNING: Using the optical audio output method can add audio latency, and is not recommend.
SETUP 3

COMPOMENT CABLE + HEADPHONES

  • This configuration uses a component AV cable with headphones, connected using a Y-cable adapter.
