Hello All

Has anyone had problems with sound and picture sync? Recently, just around the time of the recent software upgrade, I have noticed that the sound and pictures and not in sync on recorded programmes. This doesn't happen on every programme.

Any thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

This is common but try switching off the mains power at the wall socket for a few seconds then switch back on to reset your Digibox.

I find you don't have to turn it off on the mains and wait for a restart. just stop the recording you're watching and go back to a running programme. then select the recording again over the sky+ planner and it always runs fine then. I quite often have sync problems if I want to continue watching a recording by just pressing play during a running programme. Actually come to think of it I always have sync problems when i do that.
Methos.

Sounds like problems associateid with the new firmware update

Many many satellite companies (Manhattan products being the worst for this ) have trouble with lip sync.

Most commonly the problem appears a few seconds after tuning into a channel with audio, you will notice a change - dip- in tone (usually by one or two ivories on the keyboard)

With film channels you will eventually get bored with trying to watch the plot as the sound tries to catch up

Strange that Sky of all people would have let this pass through their impeccable quality control though
