I don't think there's a thread for this yet. Let's talk tech. What's your setup?

I'm a little annoyed because I just had to order a new 4K UHD player. I currently have the Xbox One S, and the picture quality is excellent for Blu-rays and 4K Blu-rays, but unfortunately there is an infuriating audio delay on anything I watch. I have been messing with every setting on it, my TV, and my soundbar for like a week and there is just no way to fix it. It's become so distracting for me that I just wound up dropping some cash on a new player to fix it. Hopefully the PQ is just as good.

Oh, and here's my setup:

65" Samsung KS8500 (Curved 4K HDR LED)
Phillips BDP7501 4K Blu-ray Player (This is the one I just ordered.)
Xbox One S
PlayStation 4
Xbox 360
Samsung HW-J7500R Soundbar (4.1)

I also have a PlayStation 3, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo 64, and Super Nintendo hooked up to my old TV in the bedroom, which is a 46" Sony 1080p LCD.

How is the soundbar connected to the Blu Ray player?

LV's bedroom setup is better than our sole living room situation.

I have a 55inch Sony, but haven't felt like buying good equipment yet (other obligations till I get my toys). So for now, I just took my Bose computer speakers and plugged them into the headphone jack on the TV.

It's not ideal obviously, but I didn't have to spend money on a receiver / speakers and it is a solid step up from the TV speakers.

Down the road, I'm looking at a Marantz slimline receiver and some bookshelf speakers. I'll also get a center channel and probably call it a day. I don't think I really care about rear speakers and a subwoofer. I noticed since 7.2 is out, that the 5.1 . or 5.2 receivers are a good bit cheaper. This is the one I have my eye on: https://www.amazon.com/Marantz-NR1504-C ... imline+5.1

How is the soundbar connected to the Blu Ray player?

HDMI to the TV, and the soundbar is connected to the TV via ARC. Annoyingly, there is no option to hook it up via optical, which I've heard can solve the issue. None of my other devices hooked up the same way exhibit this problem.

Does your soundbar have an HDMI output?

Yeah, that's the ARC I'm using. Do you mean a separate HDMI input, bypassing the TV ARC? It does, but the Xbox doesn't have a separate HDMI out for audio.

I haven't been able to find much about it, no. I think it must be specific to the Xbox One S in conjunction with the Samsung TV. Also, it's possible other people just don't notice it; I didn't until my brother - who does a lot of video editing - pointed it out to me.

I really hate my brother for this.

I'll be back in this thread in about a year or so when we finish our basement. Would love to do some sort of surround-sound system that's hooked up to TV shit and the stereo, but I don't know thing one about that sort of stuff.

Have fun. It's a rabbit hole. The sheer volume of information is overwhelming.

This is the same sort of discussion we have in the vinyl thread all the time. It'll be a shame to let the old analog receiver go, but I'll probably try to repurpose it in another room.

I've bought one Blu Ray in the last three years. Not huge movie watchers in the family. More into TV and gaming.
