Speaker Setup - Optimizes the surround sound experience.

To obtain the best possible sound, use the speaker setup display to specify the volume of the speakers you have connected and their distance from your listening position. Use the test to adjust the volume of the speakers to the same level.

[Volume] - Adjust the output level of each speaker.

HD AV Sync (High Definition Audio Video synchronization) - Matches the audio to the image.

Sometimes Digital TV encounters a delay between picture and sound. If this happens you can compensate by setting a delay on the sound so that it effectively ‘waits’ for the picture to arrive: this is called HD AV Sync. Use arrows up & down to scroll up and down through the delay amount, which you can set at anything between 0 and 300 ms.
