sound/picture out of synch

We have a Phillips 42" plasma TV--great picture, etc. We have Direct TV (we're out of range for cable). The picture is slightly delayed from the sound so when you watch someone speak it's like watching a dubbed version. Does anyone else have tihs problem?

There may be a voice sync adjustment on your tv. Look in the TV manual troubleshooting guide.

RE: sound/picture out of synch

This is a known problem w/ DirectTV, I think only with HD. There is actually a section on it in the owners manual that came w/ the box. There is a sequence of key strokes on the remote which is supposed to help, although it never did much for me. For me, it's a problem that seems to come and go and is most prominent when I'm watching HD programming of network broadcasts (especially Letterman and Tonight Show) although it's seems better recently.

I would follow the instructions that came with the box, then try resetting the tuner if that doesn't work.
