Anyone else having issues where there is a significant delay in the sound coming through the sound bar?

An example is, if I rewind Netflix on my tv, Netflix video will play, but the audio doesn't come through for about 5 secs.

Sound is coming to the soundbar from the tv via optical. And I have the Max's hdmt out, going into tvs HDMI 1 with arc

Thoughts or suggestions?

    It's a delay of between 5-8 seconds when switching sources.

    Also noticing now that occasionally sound stops when switching sources. I need to reboot the source, the bar, or fiddle with things to get the sound back on

    I would suggest calling Polk at 1-800-377-7655 for some advice.

    I did - got a replacement sound bar. Still minor issues. But, the minor issues are still unacceptable imo

    I would suggest trying different outputs from your sources, trying different inputs, see if that works. Other than that though, I have no clue, sorry.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
  • In have definitely tried different inouts and outputs. There definitely seems to be a 4-5 second delay in the sound bar play a sound when a video started playing
