Hi everyone - new 65R625 owner here as well. Ordered from Amazon first day it went up, and got it delivered last Thursday. Box was in good condition (1 of the 3 straps was missing, but that was it), and the TV was in good shape, as was the panel condition.
I am also getting the audio delay issue, but my setup sounds slightly different than the others that have posted here about this. I have a slightly older Onkyo AVR that supports HDMI switching, but not ARC on the HDMI output. Therefore, I'm running my handful of devices through the AVR to the TV via HDMI, but then using an optical connection back to the AVR for an ARC connection, only for the Roku channels etc from the TV. I have the ARC setting on the TV set to 'Auto-passthrough' (the default is 'Auto detect'). The HDMI version setting is irrelevant here because I'm not using HDMI for ARC.
As expected, my devices running through the AVR have no delay on them, because the audio isn't going to the TV and back again - the AVR is stripping that off directly. However, Roku content definitely has about a half-second audio delay. Suspecting that ARC was the culprit, I went into the TV settings and turned the TV speakers back on, which actually allows me to hear the TV audio through its own speakers and the ARC connection to the AVR at the same time. Sure enough, everything from the TV (the menu "clicks" and Roku channel audio) is delayed on the ARC connection compared to the audio from the TV speakers.
This sounds to me like it would be either a TV firmware issue or a Roku OS issue - not sure which. I can try changing my ARC setting to PCM just to see if it matters, but for those of you using an ARC connection - I recommend turning on the TV speakers & turning them up a bit so that you can compare apples to apples, with the audio path being the only difference.
I have a 5 y/o Sony 1080p panel in the basement hooked up to a non-HDMI AVR where I'm using an optical ARC connection for all of the audio, and there's no delay there at all.
Thoughts? I suppose I should be contacting TCM support if for no other reason than to make them aware?
PS: Also eagerly awaiting other people's settings, as I suck when it comes to doing my own picture adjustments...
