Netflix Audio Sync Issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I set up Westworld for an instant view streming to my Tivo III. I have watched several 'watch instantly' films and docs, but Westworld's audio lags the video by almost 1.5 seconds. It is totally unwatchable and disconcerting.

What's even worse, is the film is only posted as being available until Jan 1.

The Tivo is Hard Ethernet 10/100/1000 right to the main switch, and this is the second film that was like this. Is this an isolated case because no other people who have reviewed the film have mentioned the sync issue.

Anyone out there know if this? Can someone Stream this film and see if it is a problem in your set-up?

Thanks

I've streamed about a dozen movies through my Netflix account. I haven't experienced any voice syn issues thus far. I have had it freeze a couple of times, but otherwise it works fine.

Sounds to me as if it was a problem on your end.

Most of mine have been fine, and I have all loaded "streaming bars".

Have you actually tried Westworld? Please do and let me know your Autopsy results.

I have had great success and lousy success.

Some of the downloads are at maximum bars - HD. Most are at 1 bar less than max and the video is very clear and one movie was downloaded at about 6-7 bars and looked crappy.

I have watched (or fast forwarded) at least 15 movies and have had 2 or 3 that had a lip sync problem. It makes for a terrible watching experience and I usually just delete.

Also, the selection of movies may be a lot of quantity but quality of video's is very slim. Not a lot of selections that I really want to watch. Am still subscribing to Netflix and watching the DVDs, which I have done for about 2 years.
