My question concerns lip sync issues, but first here is the set-up. I just bought a Sony WEGA KV-34XBR800 hd monitor along with a Toshiba SD-3800 dvd player. I also will be swapping out my current digital cable box for a cable box that will act as my hd tuner (as well as cable). I am using a Sony STR-DA30ES receiver. My Receiver does not have component(Y/PB/PR)inputs or outputs. I have run the component output cables from the dvd player to the component inputs on the tv and will do the same with the cable/hd tuner. My question is by having the component video feeds bypass the receiver should I expect to encounter any lip sync issues? On one dvd it seemed that I had issues and other it did not. Is it necessary to run the component video feeds into receiver just like the audio. A follow up question would be if I upgraded the receiver to one that has component inputs/outputs how high of bandwidth would be needed to properly handle the feed? Sorry for the long post, Thom J.
