Default Shield Tablet HDMI lag

I picked up the Shield Tablet and I'm trying to run Super Mario Brothers ROM through RetroArch. The display is perfect, but when connected to HDMI through both console mode and mirror mode, I have some latency going to the TV. It feels like everything is shown half a second after it happens, which is a big deal for a game. I am using the same HDMI cable and connector that can hook up to my computer and play the same ROM with no lag, so I don't believe it's the cable or the TV.

Is anybody using any kind of emulator on the nvidia shield tablet over HDMI without lag?

I haven't had any issues using PPSSPP emulator hooked up to my TV in console mode. I do notice sometimes the audio isn't sync'ed but changing the setting in the PPSSPP emulator - audio latency to high solved the issue when connecting to TV. so I would believe it could just be some settings you gotta tweak about with to get it perfect.

I would try running something else to narrow the issue down, as it might just be that emulator your using on the shield.

No problems here either, was playing God of War and Tekken Dark Resurrection and Wipeout Pure to my HDTV via the Shield the other night without lag issues.

Make sure you turn off any features of your TV that might cause this. I know that my TV has a video "smoothing" feature that will add in additional frames to make video smoother but it makes video games almost unplayable with any console that I've tried because of the delay that is has. See if your TV has a video game mode.
