Sound delay between Samsung LN52A650 and receiver????

by nthamix74 / July 27, 2009 10:55 AM PDT

Hello to all....I am new to the forum and have some questions. I have a Samsung LN52A650 LCD TV. I have it hooked to a Sony progressive scan standard DVD player. I am running my surround through a Yamaha HTR-5560 receiver. The DVD player is just using S-Video to my TV and I am running a digital optical cable from the DVD player to the receiver. The problem I am noticing is that there is a delay in the sound. The picture does not quite match up to the sound through my receiver. I do not currently own a Blu-Ray player and I am only running HDMI through my cable box. My reciever is an older model and does not have any HDMI hook ups.
Is this a TV issue?? Should there be a delay in sound with S-Video?? I do not know a lot about electronics so if any one could give me any advice it would be very helpful. I greatly enjoy the tv but, would like to watch movies more and not be bothered by the sound delay. Please help!!!!

Welcome to the forum.

A quick look on the forum suggests that the HTR-5560 has an audio delay function, which allows you to delay the audio in the receiver so that it matches up with the picture.

There is still some picture processing in the upconversion of a 480 signal to display a 1080p picture, so if you use your receiver to delay the audio a little, you should be in business. You might look in the owner's manual under Audio Delay or Digital Delay.

Keep me posted.

A great site sponsored by Samsung, is You put in your components, and it tells you and shows you how to hook things up and what cables (s,component) are best. Plus,the audio in to the receiver should come from the tv and not the dvd player. You DO need to use optic cable or you won't get 5.1. when playing dvd's.

Thanks for the help...checking with Yamamha still for changing my receiver settings. What I had a question about was do I have my system hooked up incorrectly? Do I need to run cable from the TV to the receiver and then a separate cable to my DVD player to get matched sound and no delay?? Thanks again for all the help.

Have you been to the site wirewize yet? In most cases,everything should go through the receiver, it's the brains of the operation. You will have optical cable to the receiver anyway to get 5.1, so here's one way...cablebox to tv,dvd should go through receiver with component cables since your receiver doesn't have hdmi.Receiver out to tv with component. Remember, your optical from tv to receiver will supply the 5.1 surround for the cablebox signal too. Good luck
