    Philips HTL2160 Soundbar out of sync with Philips 37PFL8404H

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if anyone can help me please.

    My father has a Philips 37PFL8404H LCD Tv. I recently purchased the Philips HTL2160 Soundbar to connect to it. However, I am having sound syncing issues. I had hoped that by having both Philips products there should be no problem, but when connected to the tv via the audio out (red/white) to the audio in (red/white) on the Soundbar, there is a sound delay of about a second coming from the Soundbar.

    I've tried turning off the HD Natural Motion setting as mentioned in the TV user manual but this only slightly improved the problem, it's still very noticeable.

    I tried a hdmi dvd connected player to the tv, with the audio out directly connected to the soundbar and this was almost perfect, but the same does not work when I connect directly from the scart connected UPC (tv/cable/satellite) box unfortunately.

    Would connecting the Soundbar via a coax cable (tv to soundbar) improve things or should I return the Soundbar? There is no option to set a delay on the Soundbar.

    Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated, also please feel free to move this topic if it should be under the TV section!

    Hi,

    why don't you just try the coax cable connection? Just use the cinch cable for testing...

    Thanks Alex, yes I'll try that, I don't have a coax cable at the moment so will get one but was just wondering if anyone thought that might fix the problem in the mean time

    Coax cable fixed the problem in case any one has a similar issue! Delighted!
