Mistracking on dvd player
It turns out there is a problem using hdmi cables with integrated amplifiers Denon dvd players (the 1940 series) - the hdmi cable processes the visual signal before the audio signal. Therefore there is what appears to be a lip syncing problem because there is a short 'time delay' between the visual and audio signals. I would advise anyone to simply use an AV reciever as they incorporate time delay technology so the visual and audio signals are in perfect sync. Luckily, Richer Sounds, where I bought the intergrated amp gave me a full refund, no quibbles or hassle. I would like to add I am unsure if the problem lies with just the Denon 1940 hdmi dvd players and intergrated amps or ALL hdmi players. Also, I was trying to achieve a simple 2 speaker set up with the amp.
The forum on What Hi-Fi document this problem with much better clarity and technical explanation that my understanding of the problem. However, the lesson learned is, if you want any speaker set up with your dvd player, use a dedicated AV reciever.
