I just wanted to confirm if the delay I am having with the Pioneer LX85 AV is normal for everyone or have I done something wrong in my set-up. I have only had the AV for a week.
I have my sky+hd box going to the AV into the DVR/BVR input and sound to optical 1. I have configured this in the Pioneer's input set-up. The problem I am having is everytime I change from a HD channel to a non HD channel or vice versa, I get the sound but the there is a delay before the picture is shown on the screen (no issues of picture out of lip-sync or anything - just a delay for the picture to arrive on the TV). The TV shows no signal for around 2-3 senconds and then I get the picture.
Is this normal with the LX85?
Also when I put the blu ray player (BDP LX55), the same happens sometimes between the intial tracks (advertisements) where there is a lag in the video to appear on the TV as you can see the blu ray player counter increasing but the TV still showing no signal (here both sound and video as both carried through HDMI) and by the time you get the signal the blu ray has gone to the next track. So back to no signal. This is resolved once the dvd reached its menu page then once I play the movie there are no issues throughout the movie.
Does the Pioneer take those 2-3 senconds to decode the input coming in before outputting information, hence the delay?
