I have this posted on its own thread, but thought it would be better served here ....
Basically, I've isolated a problem using HDMI 3 with "ARC," where the top portion of my video will desync. I've actually exchanged a Marantz SR6008 thinking it was the problem (currently on order), only to use my TV and see the problem reoccur.
The Problem: The top portion of my screen will "desync" or "lag" behind the bottom portion of the screen. Usually effects the top 6-14 inches, will last for about 10-15 seconds and clear. It will than occur about ever 10-15 minutes. Let's just say its SUPREMELY annoying.
So, I originally thought it was my Marantz, since it occurred across all devices... I never thought to switch HDMI input's on the TV, of course until it happened again last night. I never saw the issue come back up again once I switched to HDMI 1, a non-ARC supported input port.
The cables I've been using are ones supplied with my Xbox One and some BlueRigger 15ft cables (http://bluerigger.com/ProductDetails.aspx?id=1&catid=1&prodid=1
). I'm not sure if the Xbox One cable is 1.4 or if the BlueRigger is 1.4 - neither of them really say. I know ARC came about with the 1.4 specification - does anyone really think the 1.4 v 1.3 difference (if it actually exists in this case) could be the cause ?
I have until Jan 15th to return the TV ... Currently I'm going to go get a known 1.4 compliant cable and see if that makes a difference tonight ...
I tried to capture it via video or photo but it really wouldn't help at all ... Using the XBOX One's Game DVR feature, I can see that it doesn't show, so it's not coming from the source (Xbox). It occurs on a DirecTV box and Wii U as well. It DOES NOT show using apps, netflix or amazon prime.
Any inputs would be appreciated!
