    Bluetooth audio lagging behind video

    I have a Bluetooth transmitter connected to my TV auxiliary audio output. The sound emanating from the speakers is maybe a 10th of a second behind the video. Not horrible, but kind of irritating.

    When I hook speakers directly to the auxiliary out there is no lag, so obviously the delay is being introduced by the transmitter.

    Any suggestions on how to overcome it? I don't want to have to run wires, hence Bluetooth.

    Sound travels faster thru wires. Have you thought about running wires?

      Light travels even faster. There is an optical input option, but I'm not sure if my TV has an optical output. I'll check later today.

      Most likely the problem is within the electronics of the transmitter and speakers. Gotta convert that analog electrical signal into an encrypted digitized radio signal, then decode it on the other end and covert it back to analog. That doesn't happen instantaneously. But I'm surprised I've never heard anyone else complain about this.

        My receiver has a setting that you can delay the video signal by fractions of a second if you are having this problem. Guessing your TV doesn't have that same option?

          I'll check, but I doubt it. Its about 5 years old and a cheapo model.

          Is your Bluetooth transmitter built into your TV?

              What's the version level of your bluetooth device?

              I've experienced bluetooth "weirdness", albeit not in the config your describing, and found that upgrading to a more current bluetooth version level device gave positive results. Quicker connections, better sound etc.
