Hi, I have a Denon 3801 receiver and Energy speakers connected to a Samsung 6 series 55" TV and Samsung bluray DVD player. As the receiver doesnt have HDMI cable inputs I have used a optical cable to connect the receiver to the DVD player. For most DVD's we play there seems to be a slight lag between the video and sound i.e. the video is slighlty behind the sound. Any suggestions on how this can be fixed?

I've had this problem too, but with Panasonic gear feeding a Yamaha amp. I found I could reduce the delay by turning off the cinema features on the plasma, but it never got perfect until I found a menu setting in the bluray player to delay the digital audio.

The Panasonic bluray player has a setup menu and in the sound section is a SPDIF output delay adjustment. For my setup 40mS audio delay (one frame of video) seems to fix the problem. There is probably a similar tweak within the Samsung bluray player that will make up for the display delay.

Hope this helps!

Check the manuals for both devices, there should be a millisecond delay option somewhere.
i.e. if the video is slightly ahead of the audio then you would want to have no delay on the amp etc.

Many thanks. I recall seeing a delay setting on the receiver but think that was delay between front and rear surround speakers. I will try to find an appropriate setting on the samsung bluray. Cheers.
