I just switched to Rogers Ignite internet and TV.
I can see that voice lags vs video on ALL channels. Very annoying! I see multiple posts about it, but yet to see a resolution. Is constant video box rebooting will be my life now on or is there a lasting solution for the issue?
It does work but we shouldn’t have to change setting to Stereo when there better options available.
2. When is Rogers going to correct this issue?
1. If you're listing to your TV speakers, the stereo setting is perfectly adequate and you shouldn't hear any difference between the various audio output settings on the Rogers box.
If you're listening via an AVR (audio video receiver) then there can be a slight difference when listening to DD5.1 signals (more discrete rear channel audio), but often there is no perceivable difference there either if the AVR invokes a surround sound mode like Dolby Pro Logic II. You would need a very good DD5.1 mix on a programme with lots of rear channel audio and discrete signals to the LR & RR speakers to hear any difference.
2. I'm not sure this is a Rogers issue completely since I don't recall hearing any issues regarding audio delays with an AVR, rather it appears to be limited to certain makes/models of TV, which would indicate that it's a TV manufacturer issue/incompatibility.
There is a totally different issue which has been discussed regarding the lack of proper DD5.1 on recorded programming on IgniteTV, however, that is a totally separate subject discussed in its own thread. The workaround for that is again to use the stereo setting and invoke DPLII in the AVR.
how do i do that i need step by step
I assume you're asking how to set the output to stereo on an IgniteTV box. Press Rogers - Scroll completely to the right to the "Settings" icon, press settings - Device Settings - Audio - HDMI Audio Output - Select Stereo, hit Exit key to exit.
The next thing you should do is go through all of the various settings to ensure that the box behaves like you want, not in any default settings (for video, audio, power, etc).
I, too, had upgraded my basic Ignite service withing the last two weeks. The Rogers streaming service is poor. The video/audio sync issue is across the platform. What I've found is that approximately every ten seconds there appears a momentary freeze in picture and sound.. Correct sync is missing on all Rogers streaming channels. Is the system trying to buffer too much or too little? Are the digital packets transmitted incorrectly? While Rogers markets programming, the basic technical service is simply not very good. These errors are not seen on the all-forgiving analog cable. Rogers solution all require the customer top take action.

1. It shouldn't be. I also switched in March and have found the video quality to be excellent. If you're having such issues there is a problem with your location and the signal or other issue, like WiFi needs to be resolved. You'll need to contact Rogers to have this fixed or follow the troubleshooting tips on the Rogers website.
2. Have you switched to the "stereo" output setting instead of Expert or DD, as discussed earlier in this thread?
3. You are correct in that Analogue Cable hasn't been around for years. 😉
I'm getting this audio lag too.
I've got a Sonos Arc connect via the eArc port and using the special Rogers hdmi cable. That said, some channels go out of sync more than others. CP24 is alwasy off for me, while others are fine. I came from Bell and have only noticed this on Rogers.
Re/ the note about swapping to stereo, this is not a good fix. I tried the swap and the sound quality difference is like going from a mercedes to a bicylce ... huge difference.

1.Does switching to Stereo eliminate the lag issue?
2. There should be very little difference between the DD & Stereo settings in a Sound Bar like yours on properly encoded programming. What you're probably hearing is the difference when two different decoder methods are being used by the bar. The "proper" decoder should be Dolby Pro Logic II or similar. Or the differences outlined below:
Note that Rogers has issues regarding appropriate surround sound as discussed in the following detailed post:
What you may be hearing when you say there is a large difference, is similar to listening to the LF & RF speakers instead the centre speaker. As discussed in the above link, CP24 is one of the channels that is still "improperly encoded", hence you'll hear a difference between DD & Stereo, but it's not because of the Stereo setting in the Rogers box. For example, if you set the sound bar to "stereo" for decoding instead of DPL, then you'll probably hear no difference at all between the DD & Stereo output for the Rogers box for a channel like CP24.
Looks like this setting works, Thanks. Called Rogers (twice) and both times their solution was to re-boot the box. Temporary solution as the sound lag was the same the next day. I do not intend to re-boot a few times every day. The stereo setting “appears” to solve the problem.
I'm having audio issues with the audio/video out of sync EXCEPT when I have my Ignite STB on the Stereo Audio setting. BUT I will get these random high pitched shrieks through my speakers when using this setting. This does not occur on the other audio settings.
Have rebooted the STB. Done the refresh through the Ignite Wifi app. Nothing changes.
@kennethmkelley Here are my suggestions:
Unplug the HDMI cable and replug it. Reverse the ends - the one that went to the TV goes into the IgniteTV box and vice versa.
Are you using the HDMI cable that Rogers supplied?
Try a different HDMI input on the TV.
I searched and found the following additional suggestions on the Web:
If the TV produces a high-pitched noise, follow the steps below to troubleshoot the issue.
IMPORTANT: If the noise only occurs on a specific channel or input, the issue may be with the signal being received. It may be necessary to contact the signal provider.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved after removing third party audio or video components, one of those components causes the issue. To determine exactly which component is causing the issue, reconnect each audio or video component independently and check the status after each component is connected.
