Sync between Gamepad and TV audio?

#1LightMongerPosted 12/3/2012 5:45:39 PM
I've seen this topic around, but there were never any definitive answers. The audio from my gamepad is almost a quarter second ahead of my Sony TV, creating a slight echoing effect. I can assume that this a problem within the television, as I have no sound system connected or anything.

If you could help that would be awesome.

i get this in nintendoland and thought it was to do with how the speakers are placed, the speakers are not infront of me they are a bit away from me so that may be causing the delay.

The problem is just as you mentioned, the TV has a delay. Most TVs will do that to some degree. It's just a testament to how quickly the device can receive the game data as to actually beat the video lag

It's the TV. I hooked the Wii U up to my SDTV and there is seriously zero delay in the sound, the gamepad and the TV are in sync. My HDTV introduces a small delay.

Waiting for component cables to arrive (Wednesday). If I get decent 1080p over component, I'll just run the audio outputs directly into a set of speakers and alleviate this problem.

If your TV has a game mode, turn it on. Game mode reduces the display lag on TVs which do a lot of image processing.

Can you post a link of where you're getting the cables? I have component cords for the Wii but they aren't compatable.

That's pretty messed up if Sony (of all brands) Bravias don't have a game mode. By most accounts, a Sony HDTV should have a game mode.

I dunno if this helps you, but I'll post it anyway:
