I have major audio/video sync issues with Stadia... but on the same chromecast ultra my other apps have no audio sync issues. Anyone else experiencing this?
Just wanted to share my update:
I have a TCL Roku TV and was having really bad audio lag playing on CCU. It was really apparent in Destiny 2. I finally fixed mine by disabling the "Volume mode" in my TV settings. The one that keeps the volume highs and lows a bit leveled. I now have no lag.
So if you have that setting on your TV or whatever sound system you're using, perhaps try turning it off.
This probably won't help most of you, but hopefully it can help at least one other person.
I've tried all these setups:
Chromecast in receiver -> Black screen with HDCP 2.2 error
Chromecast in TV with ARC -> Audio is delayed, 2.0 PCM audio (no 5.1?)
Chromecast in TV with optical -> Audio is delayed, 2.0 PCM audio (no 5.1?)
Chromecast in TV, no receiver -> Audio not delayed, but over tv speakers
The Chromecast is connected directly to one of the TVs HDCP 2.2 ports for 4K HDR and then to the receiver via ARC.
I can cast Netflix and YouTube without audio delay, it seems to be specific to Stadia but there’s no option to adjust audio delay anywhere in Stadia.
After fixing my hdcp2.2 issues (cycle power on tv/receiver) I managed to hook up the chromecast to the receiver instead of ARC. This results in PCM 5.1 audio. Haven't tested much, but the audio delay seems to have been fixed by not using ARC.
update: No, not fixed. With CC hooked up to receiver, I do get surround sound, but there is audio lag. No good lipsync in cutscene dialog or shooting. Watching netflix in the same setup on the same chromecast has perfect lipsync.
Have you tested casting YouTube or Netflix to the Chromecast? For me, the audio is synced with both of them. It’s only Stadia that seems to have audio delay.
Unfortunately, without the ability to adjust it in Stadia itself, correcting one will break the others 😔
