Best way to calibrate audio delay?

What's the best (or more likely, cheapest) way to accurately calibrate audio delay?

My AVR (Denon AVR-X4000) supports "HDMI Auto Lip Sync" but I don't think my TV does (Vizio M651d-A2R) and after reading the forums it sounds like most TVs don't really support the HDMI Lip Sync specification.

So... what's the best/cheapest way to accurately calibrate the audio delay?

I've just order the Disney WOW calibration disc and it has a simple audio sync pattern but calibrating the delay still seems like guess work.

Wrong area of the forum; this is for display calibrations not audio.

You have 2 options that are available at calibration disks:




1) Using the A/V sync video that is available in Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark Blu-Ray 2nd Edition Disk, there is a A/V Sync pattern with motion where you can use it to adjust the audio delay settings on your blu-ray / receiver or video processor.

There's a scrolling box where you can adjust your delay to make the audio beep occur just as the moving box passes left to right over the center column. The top and bottom of the screen will flash at the same time.

There visible marks under each box with numbers to show to you in milliseconds how off you are. (+ or - ms).



2) Using Disney's A/V Sync Video which is similar but with rotating bar.

Also there available a hardware solution:

Pharoah Editorial Inc. Syncheck3 A/V Synchronization Measurement Toolkit ($495)

Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk Free Version for Free Calibration Software: LightSpace DPS + CalMAN ColorChecker
S/W: LightSpace CMS, SpaceMan ICC, SpaceMatch DCM, CalMAN 5, CalMAN RGB, ChromaPure, CalPC, ControlCAL
Meters: JETI Specbos 1211, Klein K-10A, i1PRO2, i1PRO, SpectraCAL C6, i1D3, C5
