GENERAL TIPS: regardless of your setup, the following quick tips will help optimize your experience
Make sure your system is set to match your HDTV’s native resolution (1080p, 720p, etc.).
If your HDTV has a PC or Game Mode, select it. (For more information, check your HDTV’s manual).
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.
