My TV seems out of sync. What can I do?
ANot all HDMI is created equal. It needs processing at both ends to be transformed from a spume of bit-soup to a crispy picture, and there’s usually a whole prettying-up signal chain for it to be run through before it hits the screen. All of these things take time. Every TV will do its best to synchronise the audio stream with the picture, but if you’re playing games – or managing your audio and visuals with individual devices – things might start to slip.
For games, test out your HDMI ports and plug your console into the one with the least lag – your TV manufacturer might have specifically designated one. Then switch off every extra picture processing portion you can, and enable Game mode to speed up picture processing. If audio is your issue, a box like the CYP Adjustable Stereo Lip Sync Corrector will enable you to add an adjustable delay to a phono pair. Obviously this adds complexity, but Guru loves nothing more than making your life more difficult.
