Default Voice and Mouth Movement don't match


This is annoying as hell. When I watch HD channels from the local
stations....like the news, their mouths do not match their voice. In movies
and regular shows, it works and looks fine. It just appears to be local
broadcasts. Is this a timing function of the local stations? If it is, do
these people not actually "watch" their own broadcast and notice? Is it
worth my time to complain to the local stations to add maybe 500 ms or a
second delay to the voice?

Default Voice and Mouth Movement don't match (panasonic)


I have a plasma 50 inch Panasonic and used the Motorola 5100 I think, set
top (Charter provided) HD receiver. It did it on this (plus only 2 local HD
available from Charter), so I went and got a Samsung OTA receiver and I
dropped the Charter HD. It does it on the Samsung as well (but I get 8 HD
stations). It appears to only be a problem with local broadcasting stations
like the news. Anything national (sitcoms, live events, shows, etc) seem
fine.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has this issue or has heard of it.

Thanks

Default Voice and Mouth Movement don't match (receiver)


are you running the audio through a receiver and the video straight to
the tv? If so, and if you can, run the video through the receiver as
well.

Some receivers have slow DD circuits and can cause slight delays in
audio processing. Some new receivers (the new Sony 5000ES comes to mind)
actually have lip-sync circuitry built-in. I don't have the issue with
an HK receiver.

What are you using and how is it connected?

Ahh, I see. I have the audio going to a Bose lifestyle 35 (I know, but it
was a gift). I guess that's it. Time to auction it on EBay

I forgot to add the audio is going to a Bose Lifestyle 35 system. Could that
be the problem you think?

Its not uncommon with DTV. From threads in a local forum, it seems to
generally be the station or the network itself - wherever the audio &
video streams are combined. When one viewer sees it, everyone sees it.

There are processing delays that have to be accounted for.

I know this isn't anywhere near your seup, but I run my playstation 2
through my soundblaster card on my computer through the optical link,
and it does have a slightly noticable delay...like he said maybe a slow
DD circuit, or the fact that my soundblaster is upmixing. Could have
something to do with that.

That's Awesome. I never thought of doing that with my PS2. In fact, I am
just using mono in for the PS2 on a 19" tv...right next to my computer
thanks for the tip. Does the sound not match quite with the action of the
games or is it tolerable?

And I'm starting to think it's a slow DD circuit like you two said with the
HD. It is annoying to a point of not watching it for local programs. It
reminds me of watching those old martial arts movies with english voice
overs.

Default Voice and Mouth Movement don't match (speakers)


No its not really noticable at all, but if your running the soundblaster
sound and the tv sound at once...it starts to sound like a slight echo.
Just turn down your TV...it works really nice, and you get a "sort of"
surround sound (if you have surround speakers)...just upmixed from
stereo to 4 speakers. I love it...and this is also how I get surround
sound for my movies through the PS2...works until I get a true home
theater.
