When I watch TV, the sound is just a little bit off and it looks like everything is dubbed. What can I do about this?
I don't know what details are important, so here's a whole bunch of information. The TV is an LG 47CS570 47-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV
. We get cable from Comcast. We have a Tivo, a Roku, and a Sony DVD player
The TV is hooked up to a Samsug sound bar thingy (I think it's this one
). The problem happens when we listen with just the TV's speakers on, and also if we're using the sound bar instead.
The DVD player is plugged into the TV using an RCA cable. The Roku is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. I can't easily see what the rest of the cables are, but will poke around further if that's significant.
The problem is particularly bad on the Spartacus DVDs we're currently watching, from Netflix. It also was terrible on a Tivo'd "Who's Line is it Anyway" that was accidentally recorded from the standard CW instead of the HD channel; the HD version was slightly better but still pretty bad, almost unwatchable. It happens with every show, as far as I've noticed, but sometimes it's worse than other times -- or possibly it's more noticeable with some shows because of how they're filmed (e.g. more shots where you see the mouth of the person talking).
The sound bar has an "audio sync" setting, but none of the delays seem to work -- in fact, I think it always makes it worse. So possibly the problem is that the sound needs to come faster and the picture needs to be appear slower. A picture delay instead of an audio delay.
