    I just bought a samsung le40r8
    Picture is great, but when I plug in my external audio amp the audio is completely out of sync with the picture.
    In fact, the audio coming out of the phono sockets is out of sync with the internal speakers so if you listen to them both you get a phasey echo effect.
    Is that normal?!

Up front, i copied this from another site, so kudos to the OP there if this works for anyone...

Hi,
This same problem had been bugging me when I bought my LE37B650, everyone suggested adjusting the delay time on my AV amp but unfortunately mine does not have this function.

Anyway I finally fixed the problem using the following steps

Before you start make a note of your menu settings as you will have to reset them after this procedure

Turn off the TV then press Info -> Menu -> Mute in sequence then turn the TV back on again. This will get you into the secret Service Menu. Go straight to the AUDIO page of the menu. Don't be tempted to fiddle with things in service menu cos you can end up in a right old pickle!

In the AUDIO page you willl notice that there is a time delay set for the internal speakers of 100ms but for some reason this is not set for the external output so all you need do is dial in a 100ms delay there and that should sort the problem. Well it fixed it for me.

Note that as soon as you enter the service menu, all your other standard menu settings are lost and the screen will be set to dynamic for some reason so you have to go through and change everything back after you have done this.

Hope this Helps

This would suggest that you CAN fix the problem with an analog amp.

Also interested to see if a 2 year old thread is alive!

I've finally found the solution to this - after several calls with Samsung.

Basically, the analog audio output is the same signal as the digital, optical output. Both of these signals are sent _ahead_ of the picture, to give a digital amp some time in which to do its audio processing.

Samsung's solution is that I need a digital amp with an 'AV sync' setting, so I can add a bit of delay to the sounds so it waits for the picture to be in sync.

What this means, is that this Samsung TV only works properly with digital amps having 'AV sync', and it cannot work with any analog amp.

Nice.

SOURCE: optical output on tv through dvd home cinema out of sync

I just had the same problem. I returned it to currys and got an exchange because I thought there was somethink wrong with the surround sound itself. I have just tried , and left for ages as it goes out of sync gradually as you said ,the red/white cables (rca , i think it's called)and it works perfectely. You can find the wire for quite cheap just type it in google.

One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

I am unable to connect my sky+ HD box, surround system and LCD tv together.I was only sold a scart cable and HDMI cable with the surround but am sure I need an audio cable or optical cable with it! please...


you need the fibre optical cable, that connects from your dvd to your tv and then you need to set the output on your dvd to digi in, that can be done by pressing aux on cinema system remote or function on the system it self.
i hope this does fix your problem, if it does please rate.

1ST TIME SETUP OF NEW TV...HAVE AUDIO, NO VIDEO


Are you getting sound through the TV from the DVD, or is the sound from the DVD coming out of your home theater/surround sound system (if you have one)?

If it has more than one HDMI port (on the TV) try changing it. If not look around in your DVD settings as it might think it is only giving audio through the HDMI to a audio/home theatre system. And using the other video outputs to give the video instead.

It shouldn't be a problem with the cable, since it is digital, if it were not to work - nothing would, or the audio would atleast be coming out weird (it it wasn't working).

Best way to connect new system


After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.

Samsung Series 6 TV - cannot get TV to go through Home cinema speakes


Ok, the Audio can only be transfered to the HT if it is connected via something other than the HDMI, (the HDMI is just 1 way accept for the Anynet function (which is great with the 6 series. I have the LE52-A656))

The audio can be transfered via component cables but you will get the best out of your system using an optical cable. The main reason for optical is it ability to transfer 5.1. Only problem is the Samsung does not output 5.1!! bugger!! one you have connected it via the optical too. just set the HT to D-IN and you should be goo to go! :) There maybe something i have missed but Im at work at the mo but let me know how you get on :)

Connecting a Samsung HT-Z310 home cinema to a Series 5 Samsung TV and Games consoles, will only work with DVD currently. How do I get the cinema system to work for TV and consoles?


Do you have an Optical Audio cable going from the A/V receiver to the TV? If not, you need to get one. Since the HT-Z310 only has HDMI output and no input there is not audio bypass. Once you connect an Optical Audio cable from the receiver to the TV, anything that goes through the TV (cable audio, PS3 or Xbox 360, DVDs, Radio) will go through the receiver, too.
