Sound out of sync on BBC1 HD channel

Newish Samsung 49inch tv, purchased in December 2020.

Tried everything to get sound synced on BBC1 HD, but it is always about 1/2 a second behind moving of mouths. Damned annoying. UK Gold HD also another problem channel.

Yet ITV HD is perfect, so are the Sky cinema channels. Ch5 ok.

Any suggestions what i can do to rectify?

Is it the TV or is it the VM V6 box?

Regards

Re: Sound out of sync on BBC1 HD channel

Are recordings from BBC1-HD also affected, or is it only the live channel?

How is your audio routed - is it "plain" HDMI lead to your Samsung, or are any optical connections and/or A/V amps involved in the chain? I don't have a Samsung TV, but if you can provide the model number - others may have experience.

For elimination purposes, try toggling the PCM/Stereo option under Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Audio > Dolby

It is a Samsung model QE49Q80T 4K QLED Smart.

HDMI lead direct from tv to VM box.

Re: Sound out of sync on BBC1 HD channel

What happens if you use another HDMI input and/or another HDMI cable?

Re: Sound out of sync on BBC1 HD channel

And a couple of questions posed previously...

Are recordings from BBC1-HD also affected, or is it only the live channel?

Does toggling the PCM/Stereo option under Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Audio > Dolby, have any effect?

Re: Sound out of sync on BBC1 HD channel

I had exactly same problem. Samsung qled model.

Some HD channels were out of sync while some were perfectly fine. 

Fix: Settings > sound > expert settings > turn HDMI-eARC mode to 'auto' 

Worked for me, all audio for HD channels in sync. Hope this helps.
