Hello, I'm looking at getting an analog 720p TV for retro consoles particularly original Xbox, but I'm unsure if this will have less input lag then a digital which will process the signal more I believe or if the slowdown is based on processing effects on all of the inputs regardless of whether the tv is analog or digital?

(By analog I mean the signals the TV receives, which I then assume the TV internals are also analog)

I know some digitals have a game mode which reduces the latency a lot but would an analog beat this lag even with that mode active as I wish to use component input.

Thanks.
 
No currently made display is analog. An analog input (component, s-video, or composite video) would be converted to digital.
You would have to find an old HD CRT TV. The next best thing is to get a 720p TV which would not have to upscale to 1080p reducing the amount of processing.

Does a TV that receives an analog signal, even if it's a modern LED or LCD, count as analog, or is it just CRT's that are analog?

no the thing is the signal maybe analog so then the LED/LCD TV has to process and convert the signal that is was causes lag, older tvs don't/can't have to do that and basically just spit out the information given. A simple way of thinking about is if I only spoke Spanish and you only spoke English we would need some one to translate between us that would be the "lag" in our conversation.
