Hello All,

Last night I tried watching Anchorman on Blu-Ray. However, my A/V sync was off and I tried tweaking certain settings to help it out but to no avail. Also I notice it slightly with Gangs of NY Blu-Ray.

My Set-up: Samsung PN50C8000 TV, PS3 Slim Blu-Ray player, & Onkyo HT-7300 H.T.I.B. (receiver is Onkyo HT-R680). All Audio options on PS3 are set to bitstream.

To try and combat the sync issue I did the following:

Pause movie and try to let it catch back up,

Restart TV, PS3, Receiver multiple times

Turned the pS3 1080p/24 option from "On" to "Automatic"

Turn off Cinema Smooth Processing on TV

Disabled HDMI A/V Auto Sync on Receiver, Renabled once I figured that didnt make it work

Manually adjusting the delay time on receiver (goes in frequency of 10ms) from 0ms to 10ms to 20ms....the higher it got the worse it looked.

It seems as though I needed it to be set to -10ms if I had to describe how it was off.


Anyone have any similar experiences (preferably with a similar setup no biggy though if you have a different set up)? I feel like I did a bunch of things to offset this issue but it is still showing a difference. Anyways to make my Audio/Visual set up sync up better? Do you think this is my receiver taking those extra milliseconds to decode the audio from the PS3? The audio for this blu-ray is DTS Master HD.


Sorry for the long winded post but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

MP

Hi MPHD,

I have this same issue with my PS3.
I'm using properly spec'd HDMI 1.3a that the avr uses.
The fix is, you have to go all the way to +180ms. Did you try to go to 180ms, or did you stop before you got that high?
It does seem counter intuitive because it DOES seem like its getting worse the higher you go.
But for me and my PS3, I have 2 settings that "work". 0ms and 180ms.

Its a pain in the arse because it take a good 10-15 seconds for my AVR 254 to cycle to 180ms and and again to cycle back. (Which I have to for everything else).

Thanks that does seem like a weird fix, especially bc as you said most other content works at 0ms. I'll try that out when I get at home to see what happens.

I think the problem is that its hard to judge whether your sync is getting better or worse while adjusting the lip sync setting.

Its hard to tell if your behind the lag or too far ahead.

Tried it out, and my avr goes up to 200ms, I put it up to 200ms and then tried out 180 & 190, I found 200 works best but it is hard to tell. I still think its the weirdest fix, furthermore, I put in other movies, and the lip sync was fine on 200ms even if it was fine on 0ms before. I wish I knew the tech reasoning behind this

It depends on what your playing. If your playing regular DVD's and Dolby 5.1 or DTS 5.1 I have to use 0ms.
Playing PS3 games I also need to use 0ms.

If I play a Bluray and use TrueHD I find I need it at max ms which for me is 180ms.

It depends i guess how much processing needs to happen with the audio.

At least it works!

My AVR is a Marantz SR4003. Does anyone know where this timing/delay adjustment may be. I have poured over the manual and cannot find any reference to it.

You're posting in a year old thread ... and although current Marantz models offer this feature, your model is apparently too old.
