I have my apple tv 4k hooked up to a Denon receiver using HDMI ARC to an LG 4k TV. When watching a video and pressing either the 10s forward/backwards skip, the audio is delayed by a full second. So what ends up happening is the video seeks instantly and then you see people’s mouths moving for a full second before you hear anything. Using the plex client, the video and audio seek instantly and there is no delay in the audio resuming.
In the Apple TV settings, forcing the audio output to Stereo solves this, but obviously is not an ideal solution
Edit: I plugged my Apple tv directly into my TV and bypassed my receiver. I used the internal tv speakers for sound. The delay still exists.
I don’t know if they are the videos I am currently watching but it feels a bit better than before. With a HEVC 4K HDR TV Show I am watching the audio even starts immediately. Still I get a little delay with a H.264 1080p videos. I just tested a few. I was getting even more than 2 seconds.
Unless it changed with tvOS13 beta, which is a possibility. I have noticed the improvement after installing the beta indeed.
So i guess this issue affects only a small bunch of people and therefore isn’t priority for Infuse to fix…
I’m using a LIGAWO HDMI switch with audio extractor. I have to use the optical out for audio because my Sonos Playbase has no HDMI inputs.
What i’ve observed is that the delay only happens when setting my HDMI extractor to 5.1 output. If i select AUTO or 2.0 there’s no delay when skipping. Also no delay when using Airplay. But then of course, i get no surround sound…
I have tried the latest release of infuse on my Apple TV and the fast forward bug is still there.
The other annoying bug I noticed is when changing sub whilst video is playing causes this bug as well! The video would play for 0.5 - 1 sec with no sound. Why can’t infuse pause the video whilst applying the sub. That way we don’t lose audio.
Please, please look into this as this bug has been there for years now.
