Still on 1.1.4 and dying with the lip-sync issue. I've tried everything, every setting, every way. The only way to remove "most" of the lip-sync issues for me was to run the audio through the tv and than back to my Onkyo receiver with my DirecTv receiver switched out of Dolby Digital, or PCM. Since like other have said, PCM is two-channel audio, this forces my receiver into Pro-Logic II mode. This is totally unacceptable in 2013.
I am really hoping the rumored 1.1.5 actually fixes the problem. Part of the problem is that the lip-sync timing is not consistently off. Sometimes its just a little off, other times it's so far off that I find myself laughing. Like watching the old Godzilla movies where they dubbed over the Japanese with English. Just silly.
If this update does not fix the problem, I will be returning this TV to Costco and getting another brand. My last TV lasted many years and I never had a single issue with it. I didn't even realize that a lip-sync issue could occur with TV's. I used to have this problem when I started burning my own DVD's on PC's when that technology first came out.
I'll keep watching this great thread looking for more info on the new update.
