We have a Sony Blu-Ray/DVD player connected to a Panasonic flat panel TV via HDMI with the audio going back from the TV to our Denon A/V receiver via TOSLINK. It’s a nice setup, but the audio is out of sync (slightly ahead) when watching movies.
While the receiver has the ability delay the audio such that we can sync things up, we don’t want to delay all audio coming in via the TOSLINK, as the audio associated with our DirecTV is just fine.
Frustrating, to be sure. But tonight, I found a solution. As it turns out, the “Options” menu on the Blu-Ray player has an “A/V Sync” setting that lets you specify an audio delay of anywhere from 10-120 ms in 10 ms increments.
After a bit of fiddling, I was able to match the audio to the video (with a 50 ms delay) and we’re now watching “Elf” in all its wonderful, synchronized glory.
For the curious, the Sony Blu-Ray/DVD player is model # BDP-BX58, the Panasonic TV is model # TC-L50E60, and the Denon receiver is modern # AVR-687.
