TMP — Out of Sync

Every Monday, Paula Light, with her The Monday Peeve prompt, gives us an opportunity to vent or rant about something that pisses us off.

Lately, I’ve noticed while watching TV that the audio and the video are a bit out of sync. Sometimes the audio is a little ahead of the video; sometimes the video is a little ahead of the audio. Either way, it’s disconcerting.

It’s not all the time, but it’s often enough that it’s bothersome. I don’t know if it’s Roku Streaming Stick, the streaming channels, the DVR, or something else. I’ve turned the TV set on and off. I’ve resent the Roku device, the DVR, and exited and then returned to the streaming channels. Sometimes that fixes the problem. But not every time.

Well, maybe this is a good excuse to shut off the TV and pick up a good book.

    I have noticed that too! Some movies are waaay off while others are fine. Annoying!

    It’s probably the streaming and for us, it’s almost ALWAYS a movie, not a series. Remember when we were kids and we went to the cheap movies that the sound and picture would go out of sync? It was a common problem and everyone would yell OUT OF SYNC. Eventually, the guy in the booth would wake up and whack the film and it would either melt or synch up. One or the other.

      That’s my normal state of existence.

    That is really annoying. We stream everything and occasionally this happens to us too. I subscribed to a sports channel for a while and it was so bad that I complained to the company. It did get fixed although I won’t take the credit.
