    I have had the same issues all day out of the Boston fox network. This also happened on my recordings of House and Fringe from this past tuesday.

    Ditto. It's SOOOOO annoying. Watching the ballgame, you hear the ball hit the catcher's mit or the bat before the pitcher even releases the ball! :mad:

    I had to turn the volume down/off.

    Ditto Ditto. Fringe was SOOOOOO bad it was like watching audio from another show or language :lol:

    Interesting I noted that the audio was approx 1-2 seconds AHEAD of the picture. What I notice was approx 10min from the end the picture went back to 4:3 SD and flipped back to HD momentarily and after that the audio was back in sync. Looked to me like the problem was at Fox end !

    These lip sync issues have been going on for waaaaay toooooo loooong; IMHO. You would think that by NOW, the engineers woould have this problem solved. And honestly, I don't care WHERE the issue is - with DTV, the LILs, people asleep at the swiitch ... whatEvah ... just permanently fix it already.

    On my HR20-100s 254 fixed pretty much all sync problems. 290 Not only has audio synch problems (mostly seen on CNN and TNT) but the picture judders now which never happened.

    It happened for me on House from Boston FOX station last Tuesday as well. Worse, I recorded it OTA, which should not have had a problem. It was really bad towards the end, like, bordering on unwatchable bad.

    Perhaps, but some of us, maybe many of us, didn't have the problem until recently, either with 0290 or one of the updates just before that.

    I definitely had no lip synch problems for at least a year. Then they started for me on my HR20-100.

    I noticed problems with this issue lately. Like with CNN HD. And when I was watching Little People Big World. [And a lot of that stupid DVR stuttering. You guys know what I'm talking about. The "da da da" stupid sound. With a lot of video dropouts, and some for quite some time, on KCBS 2 LA.] Anyways, thanks. Glad to be back here!

    I had my run in with some dumb woman from direcTV's front lines. Then I emailed and got another front line- this one not so stupid. Then I got a call from the next level up. She was very apologetic but still they acted like this is all completely new to them. At the end of that call she said that essentially its an industry wide issue and that there's virtually nothing that can be done until the standards are updated.

    So... bottom line... TS on all of you... and me.
