    Hi there,

    I've got a Sony AVD-S50 DVD player/amp and KEF 2005 speakers and I'm very happy with the set-up.

    However, in the last couple of days I've noticed that on a couple of disks (24, American Pie) the audio has been unsynchronised (sometimes slightly, sometimes severely). It's quite distracting and not what I expect from a digital source!

    Has anyone had a similar problem and is there a solution?

    Thanks.

    Possibilities:

    The DVD may be the problem - it happens from time to time (and it seems more frequent to me with R1 disks than R2) :suicide:

    Sony DVD player - my old sony used to "get tired" of keeping things in sync, a quick stop and resume sorted it.

    TV/Plasma/Projector?

    TV - Sony KV32FQ75.

    It may be the "24" disc(s) I guess, but they're Region 2. I tried stopping and starting (I used to have that prob on my X-box when using it as a DVD player) but it didn't work.

    Sony no help at all. Spoke to Techtronics (where I bought it) and they said they'd check to see if the software had been updated.

    If anyone else has any ideas, gratefully received.

    It's probably the Sony actually... My old unreliable heap of junk I used to own was made by them - the Sony 525D. When it worked it worked WELL, but the first disc I ever noticed the lipsync problems on was....

    American Pie (R1).

    It got worse and worse, and even after hacking into the service mode and recalibrating the laser numerous times I never solved it. I've lent it out now as I got fed up with the problem; my £120 Samsung S224 might have its quirks but at least lipsync isn't one of them....

    Contact Sony re firmware updates - I expect they've been crushed to death under all the letters on said matter though...
