I have had 2 70" M-Series TV's and they both seem to do this (saw it again last night on the new one)
Nothing Major by any means but still there ... noticed one thing I had recorded didn't match up well at all ... I slid the Lip Sync dial up to 1 or 2 in the audio menu then it looked good ... but then when something is synced perfect then it;s a bit off again and I need to take it back to 0.
I don;t see it very often but I do see it.
I see this too! It drives me nuts, i've paired it with a Vizio sound bar (S3820w-C0) connected through optical and no matter what combination of settings i use - sometimes i get lip sync issues, sometimes i dont.
-it is really only a problem with my cable box (which is plugged into hdmi2), with appletv (on hdmi1) it is not so much a problem
-every time i turn on the tv, i have to turn Dolby to "on" on the soundbar (which is annoying), that seems to help (so the tv, cable box & soundbar are all set to dolby)
-Mostly PCM is better than bitstream (for sync issues)
-It's sporadic, this is perhaps most frustrating, sometimes i come home and turn on the tv and its fine, other times i have to spend 20 minutes with 4 remotes just to get the damn sync right.
-with tv speakers on, i have no sync issues.
I think i'm going to try to hook it up through analog RCA and turn all the dolby off (as this is just for my bedroom, running through a 2.0 soundbar....surround sound not necessary) see if that improves things.
But damn....it is the most annoying problem I have with this TV.
I do find myself having to tweak picture settings more than i'd like, and @Ursa is right, it really takes away from enjoying this big new TV when you have to constantly mess with settings - these may be first world problems, but i didnt spend this money so i can tinker with my TV every night - i want set it and forget it!
....any tips on improving my sync issues are GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks so much to everyone on this forum that's helped - you guys (and girls?) rock!
