    I'm hoping someone can help me solve a problem here and I apologize if this is the wrong forum. I have two SNES consoles (one American and one Japanese version) that I've been testing with different TVs because of a controller input issue. The input issue is the shoulder buttons will activate while pressing other buttons, i.e. weapons will switch in Mega Man X while dashing or shooting. I have no input issues with any HDTVs I've tried, but I've tried 4 different CRT tvs and only 1 of them was free of this input issue. Is there anyone who can explain to me why this might be occurring and if there are any solutions to it? Thanks in advanced

    You're saying that the button functions on the game controller change when you connect the video console to a different type of TV?

    I don't KNOW, but speculate that that the old CRT TV's are analog input, and the HDTV inputs have a variety of
    additional capabilities with digital inputs. Maybe the HDTV inputs are compatible with the SNES outputs, but the CRT TV's are lacking some of the newer HDTV capabilities.
    Perhaps someone else here KNOWS what the problem is.

    That would be the case, although it's always the same exact input issue despite it being with different TVs. When I connect the consoles to an HDTV I haven't had any issues except the normal input lag, but it seems I get a multiple button input glitch on most of the CRT TVs I've tried.

    Wow, I cant even begin to think what would cause that.

    Do you have access to other controllers and/or other consoles to check to see if they suffer from the same problem?
