    I'm in the market for a plasma screen (perhaps the Panasonic W4B). I vaguely reading somewhere recall that there were lip-synch problems when using plasma screens and seperate Dolby Digital/Pro Logic sound system. Is this correct, or have I made a mistake?

    Regards

    I can’t see why. The display should make no difference at all. If your current TV/Amp setup doesn't display any lip sync problems then adding a Plasma shouldn't change that.
    BTW, good luck on finding a Panasonic W4. If you want one and you know of someone who has it in stock buy it quickly because there aren’t that many about. My dealer told me not to expect any more of those units in quantity until March at the earliest.

    Thanks. After a bit more searching about I think what I read was something to do with line-scalers introducing a delay, so the potential for lip-synch problems if you feed a plasma through a scaler.

    Regards
