Re: QAM vs. STB Delay - settings for super bowl

There is no buffer on the Non-dvrhd stb. There will always be a delay. Nothing you can do about it.

I know that sucks, there is always a slight delay on all digital boxes, never was a problem in old days of analog boxes. I know I am always behind with ringing in the New Year vs real time by a few seconds.

dvr will create a delay. hdmi will create a delay. component output from a non-dvr will give same timing as a QAM tuner. hope this helps.

Thanks. That doesn't really help (the STB is a DVR), but I appreciate the info! Thought it was worth a try to see if there was anything I could do...

Best thing to do I guess is run a temporary cable from the STB to the other television so both are delayed.
