I have a dilemma and i need some help.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi all,

I hope with the wealth of experience on here I can find a solution.

This is the scenario.

I have recently completed a kitchen extension on my house.

At the moment I am feeding picture to a tv in the kitchen from an HDMI splitter in the living room (through double doors) directly from the Sky HD box.

The audio has bad delay so I am now feeding the audio signal via Toslink from the living room TV to a stereo in the kitchen.
The TV in the living room has a delay setting and this corrects the sound so it doesn't faze between rooms.


I am looking at adding an AV receiver and have done some research into Denon/Pioneer around the mid range 2313-1022 models.

The clear message I am getting is Zone 2 will not be able to feed the audio signal from the sky box due to it been a digital signal.

Airplay and internet radio etc will be fine but what if I want the movie or news on in both rooms at the same time.
I can feed the picture to zone 2 via my hdmi splitter but will i still need to feed the audio signal va toslink from the TV in the living room to the tv in the kitchen ?

Or is there a model that will allow me to feed the sky box audio to zone 2 and not have delay in sound.

Does your Sky box not have analog audio outputs (RCA)? Just feed that to your receiver and it will work in Zone2...

The answer is yes it does.
My feeling is this will work but the sound will be delayed. I wonder if you can change this with a sync setting within the system.

Has anyone got this type of set up.
Two Tv's running from one sky box into two rooms via a receiver.

The delay is occurring inside the TV, not the receiver... You will have issues with any setup where audio is coming from both TV speakers (which will be delayed to match the video delay) and a receiver.

You could put a Stereo audio in-line delay between the SKY box and the AVR – you can have up to 300ms on a relatively affordable (sub £40.00) box, though no idea without a test if that will be enough!
