Anybody noticed that since we went over to digital TV, there are certain programmes such as overseas documentaries and news items, where the lip sync and the sound track are not matched.
It drives me crazy! :pinch:

Is it the way our TV is tuned, or is this a failing with digital no one warned us about?

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

You have noticed correctly, Stikki. Out-of-sync problems are certainly more of an issue with digital multiplexing errors than with the old analogue system where audio and video were transmitted on completely separate bands.

Unfortunately there's no simple fix - there are so many places along the transmission path where syncing errors can be introduced, which is why you see it on some programs and news clips but not others. Some home theatre systems have the ability to correct out-of-sync audio, but is really only useful when viewing anything of significant duration, rather than a short news clip.

Rokker, you have a really interesting style of communication. Does Sb get a star on her chart or anything?

Oh yes, of course! And once you get 5 stars you qualify for a MARS bar! :whistle:

Mars? What happened to chocolate fish for such purposes? We're losing our cultural identities.

First Cadbury's, now the chocolate fish! Mind you, we're also losing pineapple lumps and those awful banana-flavoured eskimos. Gotta take the bad with the good, I guess.

Oh but the taste of one of either of those would bring back so many childhood sensations!

Would it be an unforgiveable pun to suggest that one's childhood wasn't all Roses?

Awful. I don't think they were even invented then.

They might have been called Buzz bars then, or Swiss cream candy bars, so, perhaps if I ram one into the out of sync mouth on the screen, they will mumble even more and annoy me to the point of chucking the screen out the window! Grrrr! problem solved.:woohoo:

If the sound is ahead of the picture, simply put an extension loudspeaker from your TV set at one end of a paddock and a microphone at the other end and cable that back to your stereo. If your paddock is 340 meters long you'll delay the sound by 1 second. And I'm sure your cattle will enjoy listening to the news! :cheer:

I wish to revise my earlier opinion and extend it to your way of thinking. Interesting.

Speakers in paddocks-is this where ''woofers'' come from?

ha ha, such fun! I have noticed out of sync on the very odd occasion and put it down to the Freeview box. A reboot usually fixes it. I am using a satellite dish so maybe it's more noticeable with an aerial? Has anyone on here dabbled with one of those mini computers that turns your old flat screen tv into a smart one?

I tried one of those on my partner.
