VHS/DVD Synchronisation Issues



I’ve recently been transferring old VHS tapes to DVD using my new Lite On 5115 DVD recorder (linked to a VHS as the source). Thing is, I’m having problems with sound synchronisation. I hear this is a common problem - are there any solutions?


Welcome to CD Freaks :wink:

Just out of curiosity, have you tried updating the firmware? Lite-On’s latest firmware for the LVW-5115 is dated 11th May '06, which means that there is a good chance that this is newer than the one you have at the moment, unless you have updated it to this version (19). The LVW-5045 HDD+DVD model use to have voice+picture synchronisation issues in the early firmware versions.


That’s kind if you to reply, Sean. I [I]think[/I] that I have installed the firmware. Downloading it turned out to be quite a pallaver in itself, but the CD did play and it did say on my TV screen that the software was being updated. However, there is a pronounced lag still.
