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.

We're planning to look into ways this can be improved for a future version.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

+1.

I have had to deal with this annoying issue for quite some time. Hopefully it gets fixed soon!

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.

I'm on tvOS13 beta2 with the latest Infuse and the delay is still there for me. Nothing has changed at all.
