New Atom+TV+Set-top box (Humax) via HDMI
Previously not having the joy of HDMI on my previous amp, it’s been a spaghetti of phono cables instead. One step forward…
I’ve also already experienced a delay of ~1s audio behind video a couple of times and I’ve read various lip sync hair tearing stories here and elsewhere.
One thread mentioned powering off/on the Atom which did indeed fix the issue.
My basic understanding of HDMI lip sync is that the downstream boxes report upstream and the source decides what delay is appropriate.
Generally the STB and Atom would live in standby mode when not in use. The TV tends to get turned off at night. I don’t like the idea of unplugging/plugging in the Atom on a regular basis and it seems a primitive solution.
I’ve not lived with the setup long enough to work out if there’s a sequence eg turn TV on last that causes the lip sync problem. Is there not a better way to ‘reset’ the HDMI link?
Meanwhile so enjoying the Atom/QB functionality - wish I’d plunged sooner!
