Audio problem over HDMI

I have an older style 360, and I am have a problem with the audio over HDMI.  After a short while the audio will delay for about a second.  For example, if I were to fire a weapon in a game, I wouldn't hear it for another second.

I have tried using different HDMI leads, different HDMI ports, even different televisions, but with the same results.

I am only having this problem when I use HDMI.  When I plug in a component cable it works fine.

Any help?

Do you have more than one HDMI cable? The older generation cables tend to have a latency with the picture and the sound. Newer ones, especially the ones that are high speed, have little to no latency issues.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Although, the leads I do have are a bit older, so a newer one may work.  Thanks.

Hi Zen,

I take it you're using the tv speakers and not passing the audio through an amp or anything?

Something simple that I have seen fix this issue is to unplug all the cables, press the power button several times, wait five minutes and then hook everything back up. Sounds crazy I know but I have personally tried this with a friends console that suddenly started doing the same thing and it fixed it.

Zen Like Calm: Very sorry. I thought that you used different leads. My fault.

One question: what is the model number for your TV that you are using? And are you using a surround sound system?

@ThingOnAString.  I'll try that.

@ailronroll.  I have an LG 47LM7600 TV, and I'm using the TV speakers.

Hm...I looked up your model number to your TV and just have a couple more questions.

1. Do you have the HDMI cable hookled up to the first HDMI port on your TV?

2. Is your sound encoder set to DTS, as opposed to Dolby or THX?

@ThingOnAString.  Your suggestion seems to have work.

@ailronroll.  The sound encoder was on DTS, and it was plugged into the third HDMI port.

The problem seems to be fixed.  Thanks for the help guy.
