Delaying the audio on a PS3

by rynknt / July 24, 2011 3:27 AM PDT

I was wondering if there was a way to delay the audio on a PS3? I got a sharp quattron TV (that I plug an HDMI cable straight into) for picture; however, it takes a second for the picture to render. I have a digital optical connected from my PS3 to my speakers. And so the sound comes a little before the picture does. I don't have a receiver and was wondering if there was a way to manually delay the sound when I play Blu-Ray movies so it could match up with the picture?

Probably not

Probably not. The best thing you can do is to check for any kind of post-processing effects on the TV and then disable them while using the PS3. That is assuming you don't want to use this as a perfect excuse to get yourself a full fledged home theater system.
