    Hi,
    I have the Sony STR DH770 AV receiver connected to a Samsung Ultra HD TV and also a Panasonic Blue Ray Ultra HD Player.
    Al​l heard via the AV Receiver.
    ​TV Lip sync is fine watching TV, but blue ray video has a notable lip sync problem. Audio is probably around 3-4 frames in front of the video. I am a Television director and this problem is driving me batty!
    Bef​ore I bought the Sony, I had a Yamaha receiver and could manually delay audio to adjust the sync . Can I do this with the Sony receiver? I was told it was possible when I purchased it a few weeks ago but cannot find a way with the info supplied.
    ​Thanks
    Graeme
