Kenwood VR615 - Sound Delay (Optical only)

I've recently been experiencing a 1-2 second sound delay when using the optical in. It's just bad enough to make watching movies pretty tough (although i only use the optical with an xbox 360 - perhaps thats where the problem is?) I'm wondering if there's some setting I changed unwittingly - the receiver is several years old at least and the problem only started a couple of months ago. The optical cable is fairly short, havent tried replacing it yet (but i highly doubt that would fix it.) Any suggestions?

SOURCE: kenwood vr-5900 no sound

Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

SOURCE: Kenwood vr-405 receiver

I have the 405 as well. My TV has an optical out and I run that straight to the 405 optical input. I set the input selector to DVD/CD (not DVD)and presto! TV audio out my speakers. It all comes down to the audio connections on your TV.

Only the radio output works but no sound if connected to TV or DVD player ?

you will probably have to set the correct input on the reciever, those two inputs will be able to recieve a digital input i,e coax or optical or the traditional analog (red and white ) jack.. the reciever might not know which type of cable your using for the tv and the video input..

Sound doesnt sync up from direct tv to the speakers

hi, are you trying to get sound from your TV through your home sound system? I'm not quite sure what you mean about "direct TV" thing if that is a specific term. Please ellaborate.
If you have a line (audio) output on your TV then it could be easily connected to an auxillary line input in your sound system controller. hope this helps..

Microphone delay for Rock Band

should be video delay settings in the game, this is a common issue with hdtv's, the issue is not that your audio is delayed but your video is delayed making illusion that your audio is off.

Audio: hearing everything twice

you have a delay time on your home theater JVC, that is normal. So it's either you reduce the delay time of your JVC or do not use the TV sound. Set the delay time of your DSP so you can heqar the sound you wish... like the delay time of your surrond.

Samsung HT-X40 System Problem

Hello All, I discovered the same problem when connecting my LCD TV LE40R8 to my HT-X30. I reported the problem to Samsung this morning and they told me that they are aware of the issue (which is with the TV) and an automatic software update to resolve the problem will be sent out to the TV early in December. You should get an automatic update message on your screen, just follow the instructions and this should upload the fix. Fingers crossed!
