I think it's a combination of transmission train/broadcast and receiver issues, which could explain why the software update improved things first, followed by occasional further improvements over the 10 days or so since then (without any obvious further box updates). Hopefully they are still working on the transmission train side of things.Do you think it could be a broadcast issue rather than the box?
AFAIK Done in batches of serial numbers. Got 1.612 and still getting intermittent probs on CH4HD though not as bad or regular as it was, so there has definitely been an improvement. Desperate housewives was spot on but come dine with me was out again...Gutted. Still on 1.610 and they cannot tell me when I am due the upgrade. Does anyone have a list of how they are doing it?
A few people have reported recent sync problems on BBC2. Maybe it's a problem with the transmission chain somewhere?I have a Pace box with 1.612 and I am still having problems. I recorded several programmes one after another on BBC 2 on Saturday night (Dad's Army)and they all had lip sinc problems.
My Samsung continues to be woefull. What version are you on now ?Following an update a week ago my Samsung box, installed in October, has vastly improved sync on HD channels.
Sport and movies are OK as is BBC HD.
Even CH4 HD is now in sync.
Having posted this it'll be out tomorrow!
I was watching stuff recorded on the weekend and it was awful. Yesterday I looked on here and spotted this change to 1.612 so I checked mine which had been upgraded. Last night everything appeared OK.........I really hope this is the end of it; I'm getting loads of stick off of the wife to get rid because it's only any good for watching football.I have a Pace box with 1.612 and I am still having problems.

umm.. mine is already that on operating system version. Sky told me that my model number would go from 0.7.000 to 0.7.060 when i had the software upgrade.1.32AOI
Just been watching Deal Or No Deal (I know it's not HD) on CH4 HD and it's in sync. CH4 HD was always way out.
Just checked and my version is 0.7.060 so at least for me this update has cured my sync problems.umm.. mine is already that on operating system version. Sky told me that my model number would go from 0.7.000 to 0.7.060 when i had the software upgrade.
Yes but it isn't. Mine has been 1.612 for weeks. All can appear well for days or even a couple of weeks and then the Pace has a bad moment as per last Saturday when 3 programmes were ruined on BBC2.I was watching stuff recorded on the weekend and it was awful.

I would ring them definetly! for one if you have a good moan about it they will offer you a credit so your not paying for the HD service and secondly I believe that this they will push you further up the cue for the new firmware 1.612I'm glad I found this thread as it means I'm not alone, but I'm another one...
New HD install last Friday, lip sync is out on most channels, BBC2 is horrendous - unwatchable I'd say! The HD channels are out, BBC HD is sometimes in sometimes out and overall it's not good.
It's a pace box and I'm on 1.610 so hopefully I'll get an update some time soon.
Not rang Sky yet, need to do that today but do you get anywhere when you call them re this or not?
I have a Thomson box and Eurosport is unwatchable I have never seen it so bad. I don't have Sky so can't comment on that.I have a Thomson - model number with the X suffix. Today, the sync was definitely out on Sky Sports HD1, which has been the worst offender since I got the HD service 2 weeks ago. Sky Sports 1 standard def was fine however. Am using HDMI to connect to my TV. Has anyone else had the problem mainly with Sky Sports HD1?
seems like you're lucky...Just watched "Come Dine With Me" on Pace HD, no lip sync at all, last week it was awful, i've not had any updates at all, still on 1.610 and it seems all HD channels are now ok.
Dannyseems like you're lucky...
i've still got the same problems and still no 1.612 update.
sky have said they'll refund my HD mix though but whether that happens or not is another thing. just want the update
