I'm hoping somebody can offer some advice. I have a 1040 on the latest firmware, and have done for a few months now. There are two things which are frustrating me... The first i suspect is as a result of a faulty unit, and something i probably should have returned it for. The second i live with until i try and correct it, and then get hideously frustrated that it doesn't seem to save my settings!
1) Often, although not always (probably 70% of time) when i switch source, the sound does not flick over. It misses that tell tale 'click' even though the source is displaying correctly on the display panel. The fix is a simple turn off and back on... a little annoying, but with with the exception of Spotify, its a 2 second fix. Is this a known issue, or do I just have a dodgy unit?
2) Lip sync! Its only marginally off, in fact its so close I cannot even decide whether it slight ahead or behind, but none the less it is noticeable. I guess it has to be ahead, especially as thats the only way i can correct it... If only it would save my settings! It could be that i'm doing it wrong. I click 'On Screen' then Setup > Lip Sync. I change the settings to say 20ms, and then return to the top of the menu, and then go back to my TV Scene (Scene2) I should mention that i have modified the settings on the scene so lip sync is available (ticked!) and have saved that. I then go back to TV, and there is no noticeable change. I'll then i go back to the settings and and find that the 20ms has reset to 0. The same is true if i change it from automatic to manual, it doesn't save and i see no option to tell it to save. The second option down in sound settings is Dynamic Range. If i tweak that at the same time, and go back to TV, it retains the Dynamic Range setting, but again, the Lip-sync goes back to default. It could well be that i'm going about it incorrectly, or it is a genuine bug... Either way my frustration is at its limits!
Any advice anybody could offer would be most welcome.
