Any word on the Audio sync issue?
I still experience the problem too. Thankfully it doesn't seem to last as long when I do experience it.
I am guessing the problem is less prevalent then it was because I have not heard much talk about it here anymore...

Anyone notice the bad audio video sync problem on ESPN MNF last night?
No, because we always FF through all the MNF 'blather'!

For me its live, and recorded, nbc, disc science...tnt etc etc.
I just got off the phone with DTV customer service rep. Describe the problem again.
Her response: This is an industry wide problem. She could not authorize an rma on the dvr nor a service call on out of sync.
She gave me the standard, rew pause rewind pause list replay red dot reset soft reset. I said thanks but none of this is a sure way to get sound and video in sync.
Her last statement was
This is an industry wide ie cable, sat ota problem with dolby digital. There is nothing in the DD standard that can be use to 'auto' sync the audio to video.
She then suggested that I dump my optical cable to receiver and use the sound as it is delivered thru the hdmi cable to the TV.
I spent big bucks on speakers, receiver, HD DVR, Hd TV and DTV wants me to dump the receiver and speaker system.
So much for building a home entertainment with surround sound.
If this going to be an ongoing issue then DTV may need to revisit the HD fees they are wanting us to pay. Who wants to pay for out of sync or non DD sound.

have noticed sync problems on both, seems highly variable and variety of channels. was planning to call customer service to ask about cause.
am not at home to double check menus on 722, but had found a setting for audio sync in setup, where choice was to sync for HD or SD, believe was for DD sound. don't remember whether they were already set for HD, or whether I changed them.
lack of sync has seemed less severe last few days, actually minimal c/w first few days of operation last week.
don't know why DD through HDMI should be sync'd any different than through optical, as comes from the same sat bitstream. one of my receivers has HDMI input with optical passthrough, so will check when I have time

Judging from search results, I'm far from the only person seeing this issue.
In another thread someone posted a screen shot of a audio sync setting for HD -which I assume is hidden underneath the Dolby Digital audio setup page. Apparently fiddling with those settings can take care of the lip sync error from time to time. I can't figure out how to get to that menus screen at all. There's no option in the user interface. And "Menu-6-7-TV1" doesn't make any sense to me since there is no obvious "TV1" button on the remote. Can anyone specifically tell how to get to that screen? Do I need to press buttons on the ViP 722 receiver itself?
I think this ongoing issue with audio sync is a problem with the ViP 722 firmware.
I say that because my Playstation 3 had a similar problem when it had the original factory firmware. It played Blu-ray discs perfectly, but audio sync was off when playing certain DVDs -particularly ones with DTS audio tracks. The video played ahead of the audio by perhaps 2 or 3 tenths of a second -enough of a lag to be irritating. When I applied a system update for the PS3 software the audio lag issue was resolved.
FYI, my setup includes:
Sony Bravia 52" KDL-XBR4 TV
ViP 722 Dish Network receiver/DVR
80GB Playstation 3
Yamaha RX-V995 receiver
The ViP 722 and PS3 are both connected directly to the TV via HDMI 1.3a cables. Audio for both devices is attached to the V995 receiver via standard optical cables. I'm currently evaluating a few different HDMI 1.3a equipped AV receivers to replace this old, but very reliable unit.

Listening to the audio only on the TV set isn't much of an option either. Big step down on the audio end of things.
