And it’s hurting my head.
I’ve got a Virgin TV Box connected to the TV by HDMI, and then Optical Out from the TV to the Sound Bar.
Virgin TV went out of Sync last week so I upgraded to a 4K HDMI and checked the Video output. Still out of sync with the soundbar.
TV Sound through the Speaker is in Sync (for both Freeview and Virgin), but both out through Optical Out. Same with Netflix and Amazon Prime (from TV) – fine through the TV speaker, out of sync on sound bar.
My assumption: the Optical Out is struggling to process the picture and sync to the sound. This makes sense as it was struggling more on HD channels
(the TV is only about 9 months old so that seems odd, but most likely)
Now here’s the bit that makes my brain hurt: if I play a recorded or catchup programme through Virgin, it’s fine through both the sound bar, but out of sync on the TV speaker.
I’ve tried just about every setting at all ends with no joy. One of the answers I found on the internet was “this happens sometimes. You just need to wait for it to catchup” (the equivalent of turn it off and back on again).
It’s now set to something about right – but Mr Paranoid is convinced it’s still out a bit.
Any ideas how to make the optical out sync with the TV speaker (LG’s Auto-Sync function doesn’t work).
