Question about Magic Sing Along Consumer Microphone
Hi folks! i have a rather frustrating problem that i had never encountered before connecting my magic mic into my new HDTV. when i connect it via the yellow video and red/white audio cables to my SHARP AQUOS HDTV, there is about a 2 second delay in the sound. it makes proper singing impossible. any ideas? i've tried moving into different ports behind my tv and interchanging the cables. still no luck. any ideas guys??!! thank u!!!
Ok..I found a workable solution. Essentially using my HDTV only for the lyrics(video output) and using a RCA to stereo mini plug cable to send the sound output to my amplifier that has a analog stereo input. Works like magic. No delay. It went from being unusable to WOW!

first off, thank goodness a site like this exists. thank you fixya!
ok, here's my setup:
Sony XBR-LX900 LED LCD TV Pioneer Elite VSX-31 Receiver/Amp Entertech MagicSing ET-19K
SOLUTION: i followed pmavuduru's advice, but to less extremes. physical hookup was the same. the KEY WAS TO CHANGE THE AUDIO PROCESSING ON MY RECEIVER TO 'PURE DIRECT' which turns of all analog to digital conversion.
DETAILS: Any analog signal that goes into the receiver gets up converted to digital so that it can be processed (distribution of voice, music, bass, etc to your 4, 5, 6, or 7 speakers setup). By going to 'Pure Direct' (this is the verbage the Pioneer uses, but each company will have it's own name for switching the sound processing off).
Good luck guys! If you're using a TV only and you're experiencing this issue, turn off the sound processing if you can (look for words like dynamic sound, auto surround, 3D STS sound, etc.).

With my 40" Sony Bravia HDTV, I tried to set the audio to Standard instead of Dynamic and the delay seems to be less/minimized or even actually gone. I posted a few minutes ago that I didn't have any problem with the Sony 20" Wega TV but got the 2sec delay with the HDTV then I saw the solution given by the Customer Service Department

We also have a Sharp Aquos TV that is connected to a Blu ray home theater sound system. I went to best buy and bought a pair of Plug Couplers and a longer audio cable (the red and white). Connected my magic mic yellow cable to back of the TV, extended my audio cable using the couplers and longer cable and plug it to the back of the Blu ray audio slot. I unplug the existing a/v cable that was connected to our TV to watch Blu ray, since I know I would only be using the magic mic every so often it was just easier to connect it whenever I'm gonna use it. Change the input to AUX and now we could sing without delays and still use a awesome sound system. A easy $20 fix. Better than buying a new receiver that cost $150, then purchase speakers on top of that. When I was done I just connected the AV cable of the Blu ray to the TV again and put away my magic mic.

I had same problem with my Sony bravia 46 inches HDTV. I have tried the answer 1 and it really worked well. Again I repeat that the yellow component (video) should only be connected to HDTV while the white and red components (audio) are to be connected to the home theatre (amplifier) directly. This requires a extension cord and one adoptor for yellow component. It worked really well. I was successful in singing songs yesterday in my family function and it was huge success. Once again, I thank all the people who posted their answers here. Any one who has this similar problem can also request my advice on my mail: [email protected] From: Dr.G.Ravi Prabhu, Tirupati

The problem is with the newer TVs having processing on the audio inputs. Our old (2005) 50" plasma TV worked fine (no delay) while our new (2017) 65" Sony LED TV had the delay.
So either find out how to turn off your TV's audio processing, or just connect the video (yellow) cable to the TV and connect the audio (red and white) cables to your stereo. The sound should be much better from your stereo than TV anyway.
I fixed ours by connecting the MagicSing's HDMI output to our stereo's DVD HDMI input, then connecting our stereo's HDMI output to any one of our TV's HDMI inputs. This made the MagicSing's video display on the TV while the MagicSing's audio came out our stereo's speakers. It sounded so much better from the stereo compared to the TV speakers!!!

I had this problem and after reading the other solutions I agree and have tested it suceesfully. I have a 46in hdtv and connected the kareoke to an external guitar amplifier on one channel and the other channel to a subwoofer. This I accomplished using a splitter cable. Worked perfectly...after adjusting the mic and music levels on the kareoke!!
