    Hi All,
    Any of you come across a problem on Sky live broadcasts ie: Sky News, Sky Sports News etc. where the sound is heard a second or two before the persons lips move...? If so have you corrected it and how..?

    Really annoying..!

    It's not only live broadcasts, & theres plenty of complaints in the forums, the larger the Tv the more obvious it is. I don't believe much can be done. Fixes are possible but sound very expensive (electronic 'delay type boxes'!), complex & not ideal. Try complaining to Sky. When I suffer I turn it over for a while, then back this seems to sort it. (dont know why) & isn't a solution as you have to turn off what your watching. I just cant watch when it gets too bad. So maybe it improves on its own before I turn back?

    Cheers STOWITBELOW,
    It's happened on DVD's and also things I've recorded that were ok when I recorded them. It does my head in somtimes..! So you would say it's down to Sky + and not the plasma..?

    Thanks again
