Sync sound from Tivo box optical output to LG Cinema Sytem

This may help anybody using the Tivo box optical output.

Have an LG TV and LG Cinema system, first connected the Tivo optical output directly to the optical input on the Cinema system and was blown away by the sound being out of sync, gave up and connected the optical output from the TV to the Cinema system which solved the problem, but this meant I had to keep changing the audio output on the TV from  TV to Optical every time I wanted to use the Cinema system.

Problem solved by a set up in the LG Cinema system, select Home on the Cinema system followed by Settings\Audio\HD AV Sync I changed the value of this to 200ms.

Now I have the optical output from the Tivo box directly into the Cinema system and sound is completely in sync, obviously the value may need to be tweaked depending on your set up, and maybe if you are using a sound bar or other  cinema system there maybe the same sort of settings you can play with.

I assume you have a Cisco Tivo, otherwise you'll soon crash into the problems us Samsung Tivo users have when using Dolby digital via optical :-(

Also, I always found lip sync issues would come and go and are particularly worse on some channels than others. Sometimes you just have to delete a recording and reschedule it the next time, hoping it will be better. So anyone who thinks they have "solved" the problem might be in for a disappointment a few days later.

I must've been lucky with lipsync, I've not noticed a problem (famous last words!)
