I just purchased a new 42" LG high def television set. The audio is delayed from the video and this is not acceptable for a brand new set. Comcast has come out and checked there signal and perfect. The new Samsung blueray dvd player is delayed as well.

Having the audio delayed from the video is the opposite of what usually occurs in the newer TV's since there is more processing to the video signal than the audio. This results in a lag of the video instead.

Unlike some models, your TV does not provide for a user adjustment of the audio delay. The only thing you can do without calling for service or exchanging the set is to make sure any sound enhancements are off such as, Auto Volume, Clear Voice and the Surround Sound mode.

If that fails to produce any results, then a warranty service or exchange is neccesary.

If you need additional information, please let me know.
