    I have a X9S and a X8 and never had audio offset problems...lipsync is perfectly correct. So I have to agree with @HaoSs, the issue is just at your end ;)

    how about odroid N2, my friend use it and with coreelec he can passthrough all HD audio include Atmos
    me too i think :(
    coz if it not sync at a hundreds of milisecond, maybe i cannot notice it too :p

    well i had problems with audio sync on my x6pro. Even small one you can notice. Its very very annoying . So if you are not noticing it. it's not there

    It’s about 50ms. I don’t really need to adjust it. Going to audio offset menu puts it back in time.

    Maybe it is something in my Zidoo. Flushing the image is the last resource :(

    i have seen strange bugs with no explication getting solved by a reflash in 90% of the cases .that's why i suggested it

    50ms, just like bluetooth connection delay :(
    but still i dont notice any with my X9S :p

    In case of 24p content, 50ms is more than 1 frame offset....and in case of 60p content it's about 3 frames. So NO, Zidoo doesn't have an audio offset issue because I would definitely notice it!
    Are you sure you don't have some processing going on with your TV or receiver? (like frame interpolation, motion flow, HDMI lipsync, ecc...) Otherwise you need to reset / reflash your Zidoo...

    Yes I do have motion interpolation on and at the beginning I was blaming the TV. Later I changed audio path from Zidoo SPDIF to Zidoo > HDMI > TV > SPDIF > Amp or headphones. Not quite sure if it’s better but still there.

    What points to Zidoo is the fact that I don’t really need to adjust it. Going to audio offset menu correct the problem. First I was adjusting it back and fourth 25 of 50 to make it right. Then I realized that adjustment is not necessary. Opening audio offset function correct the delay.

    If nobody else can confirm this it still could be my TV doing some audio video re-sync when triggered.

    I WAS following the Odroid N2 & the CoreElec N2 forums for a few months. You're correct--all current audio mixes will be passed thru. The big problem for me is--they will not be adding HDR to SDR BT2020. Instead they convert HDR to 709.
    Their reason--none of the programmers have a pj and they have no idea how to implement it. I have a pj and of course HDR is impossible. So last week I bought a Z9S, which has HDR to SDR 2020.

    That’s a very odd path, the best way is zidoo -> (HDMI) amp -> (HDMI) Tv and if your tv supports Arc HDMI you should plug it in that port in order to pass Tv audio to amp

    TV has only stereo speakers and my old amp for TV area is also stereo. I also use headphones for night watching. To keep audio and video on the same path Zidoo > HDMI directly to TV > SPDIF to analogue extractor for stereo receiver and headphones.

    My big 7.1 receiver is tied to projector 3D but not 4K. I have RPi there.

    i have mine zidoo-> (audio) optical -> amp, zidoo ->Hdmi -> Tv and never had any problem with audio delay. i'm just sure that it's your setup causing these delays.
    I, on the other hand, I'm very frustrated that zidoo keeps asking my DNS server for its ip EVERY 5sec! and I don't know how to override it

    i`m using X9S for my pj too and my pj only support 1080p SDR 8bit but i dont know anything info about bt709 or bt2020:(
    for now i dont see any different if my X9S play a 4k HDR content to my pj when i turn off HDR, the color still a little bit wash out
    then i compared it with same movie with different stage, 1080p SDR 10bit and in my opinion, it look better with this file, the dark scene did not crush the detail
    i have setup just like yours
    from my zidoo, hdmi go directly to tv and optical to my avr (coz my avr did not have hdmi input)
    if i turn on all sound together, they never get sync with each output
    but if i using only one, i cannot notice any delay like @3DBuff said
     
  18. Audio offset is almost always a function of all devices in the chain. TV processing settings can cause sync issues due to the time delay required to do the things requested in the settings. The auto sync function in Marantz/Denon receivers have been known to cause more harm than good to compensate for sync issues. Processing on the player side can even cause sync issues. That being said, TVs with processing turn on are often the culprit. Players with processing abilities have a better chance syncing the signal going out if the TV isn't doing much processing afterwards. I found tracking sync issues isn't as easy as blaming the player. I resolved them by resolving setting issues throughout the HDMI chain and not just at the player end.

    If you don’t have a dedicated DNS server (like pi-hole as I do) you won’t notice. I just don’t know if it’s normal behavior or a wrong configuration
