I know on nearly all H/T receivers you are allowed (and supposed to, I assume) set the speaker distance (or delay, the 1ft = 1ms rule) so that the sound from all of the channels hits you at the same time. It seems logical that the receiver would delay the video signal a few milliseconds as well, especially since light moves faster than sound. Now assuming this is actually how it is done, my question concerns people who use direct video input to their display devices to bypass any noise it may pick up going through the receiver. So, if the audio is being delayed by the receiver in order to synchronize when it hits the viewer/listener, then doesn't the video appear before the audio would arrive? Granted, I don't know how this process actually works so please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is how it seems like it works. Thanks for the help.
