    zenith dvd player
    nec 260 projector
    yamaha dsp a1 preamp

    What year was your player manufactured in?

    Back in the second-generation era (1998-2000), a number of players and manufacturers had this problem keeping the audio and video in sync. Less of a problem now, but it still occurs.

    At any rate, the best thing to do is to stop the player then restart it. The tracks should be back in sync.

    is there any way to fix the sync on hd tv shows? or just hope the station gets better at it?

    That's the station's problem, not the viewer's.

    Jeremy, I know that a lot of the receivers coming out now have 'lip sync' delay. If you have one, it may help with your problem.
