Audio / Video sync issues on NBC

I am having issues with NBC’s audio and video being out of sync. Normally, the AUTO setting on my receiver does a pretty good job delaying the audio signal to match the video.  However, with NBC, the video has to be at least a 100ms in front of the audio. So the audio delay is useless.  It like watching an endless lip syncing contest. Is anyone else having this issue?

Evening @jbolt247!

I'm very sorry to hear you are experiencing the lip sync issue. Thank you for reaching out. I'll be happy to provide some assistance!

This audio issue can be caused by 4 different factors. Incorrect or damged cables, a problem with audio equipment, commercials are broadcast at different auido levels, or broadcast anomalies. 

To ensure it is not a problem with broadcasting, check different channels. If it's just one channel, there might be a problem with the broadcast. If you have multiple receivers, check the channel in a different one. 

Please be sure to check all of your cables. You want to ensure there none of them are loose or damaged. Please secure all connections.
