I bought a new Panasonic TX-P65VT30E Flat-screen Plasma TV and hooked my existing ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 to it via HDMI cable.
When playing video files (MKV or DVD/VOB), the audio lags behind the video by about 0.5 seconds. Every video file, every time.

I have isolated the problem to the O!Play when connected to this TV.
I have two O!Play and both show this lip-synch problem.

Changing HDMI cables and ports does not fix the problem, even when changing to a port and cable that work fine with another device.
When I connect another multimedia device (eg. Samsung Blu-Ray Player with USB and MKV support or a Full-HD Cable-TV Set-Top Box) to this TV via the same HDMI cable and port, it is in sync.

The O!Play and the TV both have the latest firmware.

To go back to PAL firmware 1.24P or 1.18P does not solve the problem for my Panasonic TX-P65VT30E plasma.

I tried also the NTSC firmware 1.40N, it does not solve the problem.

When I force 1080i at the O!Play, audio is synchron, but HDMI Auto, 720p and 1080p still give me delayed sound over HDMI. Because of picture quality reasons I want to use 1080p or Auto!

It seems that this 0.5 seconds lip-sync error occurs with all new 3D-TVs which must have HDMI 1.4!

HDMI is a industry standard and Asus must be a licensed member to use it.

The O!Play has a HDMI 1.3 output, but HDMI 1.4 is downwards compatible.
I have the feeling that the O!Play does not fulfil the HDMI 1.3 standard!

Hello Andi, I have exact the same problem with my Panasonic ST30. I posted numerous threads online but did not get explanations. Nice to read your discovery. I have found that setting the Asus to 1080i works almost without lag, maybe you can use that.

I really hope that ASUS can fix this issue, this is a major flaw!!!!

Asus please respond...

I have the same problem on a LED TV LG 47LX9500. Previous firmwares do not fix it. Previously, I owned a LCD Toshiba 42XV566 and all works very fine. Does anybody knows if Asus is aware of this bug?

Since this lip-synch error occur with my new 3D-TV,
I have tested 5 different Mediaplayers with HDMI 1.3 like the O!Play.
4 of them are working perfectly with my 3D-TV with HDMI 1.4!

This players work:
Netgear NeoTV 550
PATRIOT Media Player Box office
POPCORN HOUR A200
AC Ryan ACR-PV73800 Playon!HD Mini2

The O!Play and the eGreat R200 have this lip-synch error.

ASUS Support can you please tell us, if you are working on this serious issue?

Is there ANY info regarding a fix on this matter? I mailed Asus and they said they'd come back to me but that has been weeks now. I am really bothered by this issue, it renders my Asus pretty much useless. I need to know if this will be (and can be) fixed or else I have to buy a new streamer (and in that case it won't be an Asus).

bought a new media player from a decent company (HDI Dune). Giving my Asus away, wouldn't dare to ask money for it.
