Sony BRAVIA KDL46S2010 Sound and Pix not in sync - in HDTV channels only

I bought the Sony KDL46S2010 in Jan 07. After initial install, everything worked great. Then, several months ago, we started noticing that the sound is not in sync with the picture on HD channels. It's OK in regular non-HD channels. And it's not "all the time" - seems to be mainly in PRIME TIME when problem happens. And it's inconsistent - sometimes the HD channels are PERFECT - other times the sound and pix are out of sync. I've tried messing with all the controls, swapped out the cables, etc. Note - I'm running from Direct TV - not from an antenna or cable.

Any suggestions? in western Colorado.

This is a software issue with both the TV manufacture and the cable box provider. This will only be fixed when the cable company and TV manufacture sit down and work out their problem. Some cable company has taken the first step by updating cable boxes with different software.

Hi my sony bravia kdl-46v4100 model is decresing sound before i use 20% volume to hear it but now i use 40% of volume. What should i do? Can you guys help me? Thanks!

It's probably a station channel, channels broadcast different picture and sound quality, therefore when changing channels this can be noticable. It is probably not a tv problem.

Does this model have Bravia sync?

Yes it does per SONY web site:
BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ technology

Sony® created BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ to go beyond basic digital audio and video transmission. Based on the HDMI-CEC function, BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ will be included on select BRAVIA® Theatre home A/V systems and components. This useful function reduces the hassle and time consuming job of powering up, routing signals, etc. to the simple push of one button.8 Want to play your DVD on your Sony® A/V system? Easy, just push PLAY on the BRAVIA® HDTV remote and everything is taken care of for you. Even when the system is off! Want to change from TV sound to digital surround sound through your Sony BRAVIA® Theatre A/V system? Just one push of the Theater Sound button on the remote and voila, surround sound through your system. Want to power down everything once you've finished enjoying it? Push one button and the TV and A/V system powers down. BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ helps make things a whole lot easier to operate.

Sony 37" Flat Panel Bravia--cant change from channel 2?


On the original Sony remote control, try typing in a channel manually. Try pressing the numbers "0-4" or "0-5," and waiting for a moment. If the channel changes, then the TV needs to be autoprogrammed. Using the SOny remote control, go into the MENU (or HOME on some Sony remotes), and look for the initial setup screen. It will walk you through the process. The process is also in the original users manual, available on the website.

Hope this helps you....

Channel information stays on screen for av channels

there should be a info button or display button on remote to turn on and off, unless it is coming from the box that is connected to tv
