Not sure I've placed this in the appropriate forum, let me know if I have not.


Here's my situation:


My primary home theater room sits adjacent to an outdoor area (Zone 2) where I've got another TV mounted. I've got UVerse boxes in the inside (primary uverse box) and outside area. During game day parties, we've got both TV's going and as long as two different games are being displayed, no problem. However, when everyone is watching the same game the video/audio is not in sync between the two areas. The areas are close enough together to be distracting.


I had a couple of ideas to deal with this issue but wanted to run it by the knowledgeable folks in this room:


My thought was to split the UVerse signal in the primary room and run a 2nd HDMI cable into my AV receiver for Zone 2. From the receiver run an HDMI cable to the outside TV in Zone 2 that would carry the video/audio. I estimate the distance would be 30 ft that the HDMI cable would have to run.


I'm in the market for a new AV receiver and I believe the Denon X3000 or X4000 will accommodate Zone 2 digital audio/video.


The second idea was to again split the HDMI signal but run the HDMI cable straight to the TV bypassing the AV receiver. This is not as desirable since I would be relying on the TV speakers in the outside area. Not sure it would eliminate the sync issue either.


Am I on the right track? Is the above possible? Is there a better way?


Thanks

It may simply not be possible to get the two in sync. Each TV has its own internal processing and typically the delay is different between TVs. Neither of your proposed solutions would have any impact on this problem, it's simply one of the characteristics of digital TV.
