I had the same problem that you are having.. Sony has put out an up date for the original software, I dont know if you mirror'd the software from your old hard drive... but if you hook up your PS3 to the internet then it should say that a newer version of your software is available. it is a 1050MB download so be prepared to wait awhile. (PS3s download slow!!) But, after you do that your issue should be fixed. It has helped me. If that does dot work then I would contact PS3's help desk and explain the problem... hope that helps!! good luck....
I'll try to explain this little problem in the best way. Sorry for the length, but it should be easy to understand so hopefully someone can help me out.
- 250GB HDD (originally 40GB).
- Hooked up to 32" Sony Bravia KDL32M3000 (max: 1080i) with HDMI.
- PS3 display settings - 1080i: Works fine.
- PS3 display settings - 720p: Sound becomes delayed when playing a game.
You know how with some TVs when you start up a game the screen kinda blanks out and pops back alive really quick? I know that's normal...
When the display settings are set to 720p, the sound can become delayed after that. So after starting a game - and I mean any game (disc, PSN, even F@H), the sound goes out of sync, even after quitting and coming back to the XMB. Another odd thing is that the delay duration varies every time. The longest was almost a full second.
Display setting 1080i does not do that.
How I temporarily fix this;
While playing a game (being out of sync and all), I can change the channel on the TV and come right back to HDMI 1 (video channel I'm playing on) and the sound will be back in sync. So it seems like the delay is caused by the 'video source' change when starting or exiting a game.
Things I know;
- It's not the cable. I have tried different HDMI cables. Same problem with all.
- It's not the port on the TV. I tried this with my 360. Stays in sync.
- The PS3 itself? Maybe the 5400RPM 250GB HDD is too slow to keep up? (but then again, I can temporarily fix the issue...).
Remember, this only happens with 720p.
