I am pulling my hair out with the audio sync on my new Sony KDL52w5100. Sometimes it's in sync. Sometime's the picture is ahead of the audio or the audio is ahead of the picture 1-2 frames.
I first noticed it with the Netflix streaming feature that's built into the TV. I read that other people had this problem and that it was possibly resolved with a firmware update. Perhaps it was, but I gave up on it and just used the Netflix feature that's built into my DVD player (Insignia BluRay connected over HDMI straight into the TV).
Netflix playing over the BluRay player is pretty good. Most video is in sync. When it's not in sync, I attribute it to the Netflix streaming and not to the TV or DVD player.
However, when playing a blu-ray disc on the TV, the sound is pretty badly out of sync to the point of being annoying. Is there any way of avoiding this without buying a receiver and an external set of speakers? I know that there can be an inherent audio delay that comes with any digital TV, but I was hoping that it wouldn't be so bad as to not make it watchable without an external sound system.
I experience this same problem when trying to watch video playing off of my computer (DVI-HDMI). The audio is in sync on the computer screen but delayed on the TV.
It seems that this is a problem with the TV and not with the sources feeding into it. Has anyone else experienced these issues with this or other LCD or plasma TVs? What are your solutions?
Thanks for your input.
