I have a Denon 3805 paired with an Oppo BDP-83 (for movies), a TiVo HD box, and a Samsung PN50B650 plasma.
Since the 3805 does not have HDMI, I am running HDMI for picture from the Oppo/TiVo and digital optical for all audio. I have persistent sync issues, especially with the Oppo - despite my having tweaked the audio delay settings in the HDMI options settings.
My question is, will upgrading to a HDMI receiver such as the 3808 solve all of my sync problems? Also, will I be able to watch from one source but listen from another? I am in the habit of listening to music during commercials.
Finally: are there sync solutions I should consider before buying a whole new receiver - everything else is pretty great, but I've been unable to resolve the sync issue and it's freakin distracting.
Thanks all for any insight...
