How can I fix a lag between the HDTV image and the audio coming through the speakers?

I have a Samsung LED HDTV which works great except for this video/audio lag. When I play a DVD, the video comes into the TV from the DVD player (obviously), and the audio goes through an Onkyo A/V receiver to a pair of speakers.
When I do this, the audio comes out of the speakers first, and then the video follows after about a quarter-second lag. I'm guessing the TV needs some extra time to render the image while the audio flows instantly through the receiver to the speakers. (This lag also occurs if I watch video from the TiVo, i.e., it's not a DVD player issue.)
Is there any way to fix this? I don't suppose an A/V receiver has a setting to add a delay... but then I figure other people must have similar setups (HDTV and an A/V receiver) and have addressed this issue.
