Lip movements are about half a second behind the voices. Does anyone have any ideas on how to eliminate this problem?
Here is some information that I've saved.
Video delay can be caused by video processing at any point in the chain of events that leads from creating media to displaying it on your screen.
You can buy a A/V Receiver that lets you add audio delay to each input, but usually the controls to do that are so deep into the receivers menu system that you can't make easy adjustments.
You can add an audio delay device between your "STB/DVD player", and the receiver. The most popular one that I know about is the Felston. The Felston DD540 has a remote control so that you can easily adjust two different sources and save six different settings for each source.
