Question about Surround Sound / sync

Hi again all,

Another question that springs to mind after months of scratching my head over this puzzler.

So, I have my HDTV set up to a 3D blu-ray player that is also a 5.1 surround system. It sounds amazing when playing blu rays but.... for some reason the audio is out of sync on everything else when trying to use ARC control. For example, Netflix off the Roku menu is a few seconds out of sync, Youtube, my X-box...etc.

I've tried difference cables, settings, etc. but nothing seems to fix this. It seems the only thing that works as straight sync surround is discs direct on the system or USB.

Any ideas?

I had wanted to snag a 4k player and use it with this existing surround but it seems to me that would be out of sync as well.

Re: Question about Surround Sound / sync

Does the system have any sort of sync adjustment? I had to adjust mine when I got it, and the one before that also. Some players also have a sync adjustment.
