Magic (karaoke) mic sound delay problem when connected to HDTV

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!!!

    it's due to analogue-to-digital upconvert. I have the same problem.

  • Anonymous Jan 25, 2009

    I have the same problem, I thought it's because of the wireless mic that I had this delay.


    I only have HDTV (samsung lcd) at home, has anyone tried it on non-hdtv and works?


    Thanks,

    Same problem here with Sony 50 " XBR bravia

    As per my experiences- being the Customer Service Department head of magic sing, magic sing not compatible with HDTV, plasma or LCD tv.

    but you can at least try resetting your audio mode to either TV mode or Amp mode.

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!

Hi all!
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

  1. INPUTS: all of my devices (MagicSing, PS3, Cable Box, AppleTV, etc) connect to the receiver, and the receiver is used as a switch go select the input to the TV.
  2. VIDEO: the TV is hooked up to the HDMI output from the receiver for video only
  3. SOUND: the home theater speakers are hooked up directly to the receiver. the TV speakers remain off via HDMI 1.4a allowing to TV to know that it's hooked up to a home theater
my problem: anything you sing in the mic is about 0.5-2 seconds delayed. ie when you sing, it takes forever to get to the speakers and back to your ears.
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.

    Can you please help me how you did this? Attach a picture or something and a more detailed instruction? What kind of coupler should I buy? There seemed to be different kinds. And my TV doesn't have AUX as a choice. I have a Vizio. It has comp/AV, HDMI 1-4, and RGB como. Those are the choices I have on my tv.
    There's only one thing connected to my Bluray which is the HDMI cable.
    And what is the reasoning behind unplugging the a/v cable (which I don't really know what that is) to watch the Bluray. Because I watch Bluray on my tv with just the HDMI cable. I don't think I have the a/v cable you're talking about. Basically I'm confused and my Magic sing is not usable because of the delay. So please help. Thanks.

    plug the yellow cable (video) at the back of your LG tv, then the red and white cables (audio) directly into your amplifier. works to me. i got LG HDTV and Yamaha amp 5.1 surround.

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

    I just found a simple solution for my SHARP AQUOS HDTV. From remote control I selected "Option", then select "change audio output device", switch from "by aquos SP" to “by aquos audio SP”, then I had no more delay!!!

    Try it out if you have the same HDTV, or try similar setting for any other models. Good luck!

    Hi, keep it in mind. Latest Tv's are digital now a days they have digital circuit board. If you connecting a stereo sound on the input of digital tv it will process a digital output on the tv speaker that's why there is a delay of sound audio. To have a better sound or vocal output connect the audio cables of magic sing on old karaoke machine if u have one or ampli. If not check you're tv's adjustment on audio output. If u run you're magic sing in old karaoke machine buy adapter cables rca audio IN femail to phono input of the karaoke machine.. Hope I gave u idea.

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!!

Hi everyone! I hope someone can help me here. I've got mic delays on my magic sing when connected to my Sony HDTV and yamaha sound bar yas101. I've read it somewhere in this forum that I needed to separate...

there is not rca connection on that model of sound bar. your sing device may have a latency setting to adjust the time between the two.
check and adjust if you have this option

There is nothing you can really do, sometimes there will will be delays because the computer is having a hard time processing the information and starts to lag.

You can always try re downloading drivers for the audio portion of the computer and seeing if there might be some updates for the mic or the karaoke program you are using.

2-second delay with Magic Sing

i bought et18k. just the same as yours.its 2 days old and has the same problem. the technical assistant says that its because of the digital setting that new tvs have. there are two ways to solve this though:

1. connect the video (yellow plug) to the tv. and the other two plugs (yellow and white) to the stereo. when i say stereo, its not the dvd home theater system that you have but a separate one. if you connect it to the home theater that you have, it'll just sound the same, you still have the delay.

2. connect the magic sing to the older tvs hangin out. and you'll get no problem at all.

**TVs such as sony, samsung, philips, sharp and all plasma tvs including other newly designed tvs will have the delay since they all share the HDMI thingy that causes sh*t.
