Do a search on sync in the Directv HD DVR section and it will keep you busy for a long time reading the discussion. I can also say from personal experience as the owner of (2) HR20 units and the previous owner of one of the original HR10-250 Tivo unit that there has been siginificantly more audio sync issues with the HR2x units than the Tivo. It is possible that most of problems are with the mpeg-4 stuff that the Tivo can't receive. I don't know if it is Directv's "fault" or not but I think it's safe to say that audio sync problems are negatively impacting a large number of HR2x users. BTW I use component video and optical audio to Onkyo 898 and HK AVR240 AV receivers with both the HR20 and HR10-250 units so the sync issue is not just with HDMI.
If you "search over there" you might see a few of my 15,000+ posts.
Yes, I'm aware of what's posted there.
It also doesn't seem [IMO] to be as widespread as you seem to think.
I watch more MPEG-4 than MPEG-2, use HDMI and haven't seen this but "a few" times.
Your AV amp has "some time delay" settings correct?
