    I have recently bought an LG DI-30LZ30 LCD TV (£999 from Comet) as a replacement for a faulty Toshiba 27WL46 LCD TV.

    While I am quite happy with the LG, I've noticed that its lip-sync is very poor, particularly on some Freeview channels where the audio leads the video by (I estimate) 1/10th second or more. I've never noticed this on any other TV I've used and it is very distracting.

    Has anyone else had the same experience with this TV? Is there a fix for it? Should I just return it and if so what should I get instead?

    Please help!

    This problem is common with low-end LCD tvs.
    The picture digitizing and de-interlacing logic takes time to process the signal and the audio goes straight through.
    More expensive sets have delay in the audio to compensate for this.

    This may be so, but I fine it frankly amazing that someone can produce a TV where the sound and pictures don't match up as a matter of course. I wouldn't expect this problem from a TV costing £100 let alone one costing £1000!

    The Toshiba I had previously didn't have this problem.

    Any recommendations for a 26-30 inch LCD TV costing < £1000 which doesn't have this problem (and also has DVI-D, 2 x Scart and preferably Freeview built-in)?
