I'm also in Louisville, KY and my sound was out of sync while watching it in HD. My HD is provided by my cable company, Insight, so it wasn't just OTA.

My OTA HD is out of sync w/ my audio once in a blue moon - don't know what you can really do about it either: I think it's the affiliate's fault.

My TV has a delay setting for "fixing" out of sync audio. Anyone else have this?

I noticed mine was out of sync too. I think it went away during the 1st hour though. (NON-HD)

I still have yet to watch Lost off the Comcast DVR in HD so I don't know.
But what I saw of the recap show prior to it seemed fine.

Hmmm, I guess a lot of people were out-of-sync then. IS this a ABC issue or a Comcast issue?

Invasion was even out of sync...I had to DVR the NON-HD version since it's a pain to watch Godzilla-like character speak.

i have the comcast dvr, and after just watching the first scene, the sound effects were in sync, so i assume that it was fine for me.

Mine was out of sync and also everyonce in a while this loud static noise would come across the feed.

There instances where this happened over pieces of dialogue.

Time Warner in Charlotte here, ABC HD with the 8300DVR (watching it live though). Nothing was out of sync, but I did get a couple of "freezes" during the show.
