Fox Channel Lip Synch off with Soundbar

Whenever I use my soundbar, Fox channel goes out of sync no matter what X1 Audio setting I choose for the HDMI output or the TV input. X1 restarts do not help. Other channels are fine. I’ve been troubleshooting this for weeks now...

You are better off connecting the sound bar directly to the television.

Soundbar is connected to the TV through the HDMI arc port.

find a 'talking head' channel and then use the TV's remote and locate the audio lip-sync menu. adjust the timing (+/-) until it is good. The adjustment affects only the current port.

Thanks, I have tried that. Since it’s only a few channels having the issue, Fox being the worst, it’s not tied to the port delay settings.
My X1 box is not the newest model so I’m thinking of trying a newer device.

After lots of tests including two different x1 boxes and two different soundbars, audio sync works best if the soundbar has a HDMI pass through port to send cable through to the TV. That’s the only combination that works for me.
