    Anyone help me with a sound delay problem on Philips plasma, particularly when receiving some Sky channels. DVD plays OK. Perhaps it is a connection problem. TV is linked to DVD (cinema surround) system and sky box through scart connectors.

    Before blaming your connection or the plasma you should know that it is more than likely to be Sky itself.

    Sky is known for problems with sound delay although I must say that it is getting better.

    If you are suffering these symptoms:

    (i) Sound is delayed (i.e. behind the picture)
    (ii) Doesn't happen all the time and not on all the channels

    Then I'm 90% sure it is a Sky problem.

    However, if you are finding that the sound is ahead of the picture and happens all the time on all channels then it is likely you are seeing a lip-sync problem which you can fix (if using a seperate AV Amp) by either using the Amp's delay function (if it has one) or using an external delay (such as the Felston).

    However, from what you have said I think you are seeing the former (down to Sky) and there is not a lot you can do about it.

    Cheers,

    Nigel
