    I just installed my new HT and now when I watch a DVD I think I hear a slight audio delay. It's almost imperceptible, but I think it's there. I never heard this before (or noticed). I have a 27" Sony tv, a Sony DVD player , and Bose speakers.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience? Can anything be done?

    Thanks

    Just a delay of the sound relative to the picture?

    Is it on all DVDs??

    My mistake, It turned out to be a setting on my reciever. As I was reading through the instructions again, I found the directions how to reduce the delay.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    ???

    That would be the delay menu most likely. I don't know what kind of receiver you are using, but don't just go changing them willy-nilly because those delays are there for a reson. If you are using one of Boses little "module" things, I have no idea what kind of voodoo crap they are doing to the sound but a standard receiver has delay settings either in ms, or more commonly in feet(it calculates the ms time for you). This is such that sound from the speakers in a surround setup reaches you at the same time, because often the speakers are at different distances.

    Don't forget to calibrate SPL levels for each channel as well, uncluding the subwoofer.
