Delay on live TV

I am watching channel 502 Sky Sports HD on an LG tv on a V6 box.

It is about seven seconds behind my Toshiba tv on a Tivo box.

I don't recall this delay in the past.

Re: Delay on live TV

there's usually about a second delay with HD due to amount of data streamed. 7 secs does seem excessive, is it only on 502 ( or live sport) or with HD films etc?

Re: Delay on live TV

That was for live sport on 502.

For non-live programs on 502 it is fine.

(I'm not able currently to check other channels for live sport)

Re: Delay on live TV

I have checked another live sport HD channel 506 and that is OK.

Re: Delay on live TV

Hi Mikefox

 

Thanks for your reply.  Can you please tell me if the delay on channel 502 for live sports is still happening or has there been any change?  If so can i ask if you've already tried rebooting your V6 box?  

 

Many thanks.

Re: Delay on live TV

I have just checked and, miraculously, the problem has corrected itself.

In fact the 2 channels are now exactly in sync.
