    Just tell the receiver to travel backwards in time.

    Audio delay only works where the picture is behind the sound.

    If you want to introduce an intentional lag to your picture for a game... go right ahead if you can figure that out but I dare say that defeats the entire purpose.

    I mean, you can probably do that easily just by disabling game mode on the TV.

    ... I'm not gonna do that.

    If you've got a hdmi 2.1 set then even outside of game mode latency is so low that that's unlikely to work.

    Also it wouldn't make sense as you say.

    It sounds like I'm talking bollocks but it's been a few months and my memory is sketchy about it.

    I was connecting my One X into my TV via optical in, then my TV into my Playbar via optical out. The delay was very noticable and I no matter how much I played about with the audio delay setting it just made it worse. Though thinking on, I think I was adjust this on my TV and not in the SONOS app. I'll give it another go because having to piss about with an optical switcher is terrible.

    Negative delay is kind of running joke in the audio world, I think it started with a guitar pedal that claimed analog negative delay. Which would indeed imply time-travel.

    One X to TV via HDMI, shirley? This is how my Playbar setup works (and I have no obvious delay).

    If you have eARC, delay should not be an issue if you just use PCM 5.1.

    The problem is for those who have optical or ARC, since then you are stuck with either PCM 2.0 or laggy bitstream 5.1.

    Xbox One to TV via HDMI is what was causing the delay in the first place. Getting an optical switcher and going to my Playbar via optical was the only way I could remove the audio lag.

    Did you cement them in place, because that could be affecting it.
