i am one of the early posters on this thread. it is *less* noticeable and less frequent, but it still exists. it still doesn't exist OTA, and nor on multiple devices that receive streaming video. I did get rid of DirecTV, but if i just find enough time to provision my comcast service into data only, i will probably return to satellite.

same issue for me, in Miami/Broward area, worse example on channel 433 (WFOR-CBS) issue exists on all three of my TVs, DVR and companion, but worse on some. never had this issue with old Comcast gear (which was my backup) and never with DirecTV. on my DVR connected set (a 2012 Sony LED), audio is routed via HDMI to the TV then Toslink to the A/V receiver. sync issues vary, but worse on broadcast channels. annoying. this TV still has DirecTV (not sure if I will cancel it yet), and built in OTA. only Comcast has the audio sync issue. office TV had similar setup, problem mostly resolved when I directed Toslink to the A/V receiver (opposite result of someone on another similar thread). it's not my preferred setup and again, zero issues with DirecTV. bedroom has no A/V receiver, HDMI to TV with TV speakers, problem exists and is annoying. Comcast has been out once to replace one my companion boxes, but overall my satisfaction is very low. besides the audio sync, there is the slowness of the companion boxes, a difficult to search interface. the entire solution is poorly thought out with regards to interface, performance, reliability, etc., but the audio sync is the killer. i have had two sources of TV and Internet (uVerse also serves me here), and my goal was to eliminate DirecTV as it's a unneeded cost, but now I am reconsidering.
