I haven't read anywhere about this situation in the forums yet. How is everyone dealing with the sync issue of picture and sound with those of us with TV's that take a bit of time to process the video and hence introduce a delay, making the sound appear ahead slightly. When I first got my Sony SXRD set about 4 months ago, it was the first thing I noticed when playing DVD's on my Denon 1920 (using HDMI for the picture). I ended up buying a digital delay unit that allows me to delay the bitstream and all was well. But I wondered what would happen when I bought my HD-DVD player and used the analog outs in order to play the DD+ and True HD audio. I've had my player about three weeks now and do see a slight sync discrepancy. In almost all cases in my 21 title collection I can watch the DD+ through analog and not be too bothered with the sync (one exception being Bourne Supremacy), but for some reason the True HD tracks look more out than the DD+ and in one case Phantom of the Opera I can't stand to watch the True HD because the sync is too far off. The other three THD titles I have are also off, more than the DD+ but I can probably bear with it for the sake of the better sound. My question is - when I eventually upgrade to a processor with HDMI connections, do they allow for delay of the PCM tracks or for the bitstream signal (through HDMI) for those of us with video delay to compensate for it? I would think people with plasma sets would most notably be seeing this issue, or am I just overly sensitive to lip sync issues?
