    Hi,

    I've just installed my new Panansonic PWD7 Panasonic and have noticed lip sync problems when watching Sky.

    I'm using speakers attached to the plasma directly, no external amp.

    The problem is less detectable or not present when watching DVDs I think.

    Is this a common problem? Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

    yes its very common with sky and the answer really is to get an amp with sound delay (I'm assuming it's the usual problem of sound slightly ahead). Sometimes resetting the sky box may solve it short term and on some channels you may not get it at all but an amp is the only 'real' solution.

    I think the sound is slightly ahead...

    Why is the problem more apparent on Sky compared to DVD?

    I'm considering buying some speakers and an amp to match. Is the sound delay feature something normally mentioned on the specifications?

    Also any suggestions on a basic amp featuring this sound dealy feature?

    i'm not sure why sky is worse.......but its to do with the time taken to process the picture (there is loads of info about lip sync on teh forum).......my own amp (see the yammy in my details below) has this feature and is a very good amp for the money...you can (or could, i haven't checked recently) pick them for under £200 from superfi....rrp is closer to £300

    I'm also using a 5+ year old sky box, one of the first pace ones. Would this be causing any problems?

    Are the newer sky boxes better at handling these problems?
