My question is on the best way to connect the audio to my non-HDMI receiver while using HDMI to connect the display. I've searched the threads and didn't find anything exactly on point, but if you know the right link and could direct me, I would appreciate it. Here's my equipment:
Display: Panasonic TH-50PX600U with 2 HDMI inputs
Receiver: Onkyo HT-R940 (no HDMI inputs)
DVD Player: OPPO DV-970HD
Comcast DVR Set Top Box
I've connected the display to both the Comcast Set Top Box and the DVD player via HDMI. Connected the DVD player audio to the Receiver via digital optial input. Connected the Set Top Box audio to the Receiver via RCA input.
Here's the problem:
The audio seems slightly out of sync from the DVD player. When both the TV audio and the surround sound audio are on at the same time you can hear a slight delay. The receiver has adjustable delay times, but changing them only makes the problem worse.
I know the optimum solution is probably to get an HDMI capable receiver, but I'm not going to do that. Is there a preferred way to hook up the audio in this type of set up? Any thoughts on the audio sync issue?
Thanks in advance!
