TV video delay software

Don't know how many of you out there like to watch sports or other simulcasts and turn the tv audio down and listen to the "home" team announcers.

Now since digital TV has taken over, the two do not match and it's maddening to have the person on radio call the play before it happens on tv.

OK, the reason for all this rambling, is that I have found a freebie piece of software that will delay the radio audio.

You connect your radio to your computer and start the software and adjust the delay to match the TV video. I use my laptop so I can move everything nearer the TV. You can suffer with the tiny speakers in most laptops or attach a larger speaker from the earphone output. For a very small and free program it does a pretty darn good job.

Re: TV video delay software

now that's just clever as hell, steve. i'll never use it, but it's still clever as hell

what i said years ago was that the entire industry was missing the ball in the new 'digital age'. what i said and promoted for a while was, you put the computer as the center of everything, tv, radio, household appliances, security, home weather station, internet, short wave radio, cb radio, police/emergency band radio.... everything. and you let the computer interface everything with everything. it's digital for god's sake. it doesnt have to be translated like an analog system. any translation from analog you do in the appliance itself and send the signal to the computer as digital.

by doing all of that, you could record radio on your computer, you wouldnt really need a dvr because your computer becomes your dvr, you could feed stuff out from your computer to other stations in the house... it's almost endless. and no one has really jumped on that ball yet. i'm quite surprised. even the 'home entertainment' folks havent completely gotten on the ball yet. sony, are you listening? phillips, you've been pretty innovative in the last couple of years, what gives?

ah well, my bill gates house will just have to wait till i'm as rich as he is, i guess

Re: TV video delay software

I got the software to be able to watch our local football team and hear our local announcers instead of the network guys.

Boggles the mind to think what ten years will bring, Craig. I'm sure your ideas will be realities by then.

And I hate to admit that I remember the time before audio tape was invented.

Craig,

Speaking about compete computerization of home appliances.

What do you think about the following scenario:

In order to use your new 200" 3D Plasma Star TV you need to install new OS, Windows 999.

After finishing the installation you realize that:

- OS can not recognise your fridge. OS thinks it is microwave. The fridge now warms up the food inside.

- Generic furnace driver supplied by OS for does not work properly. You have to wait for manufacturer to get a new driver for Win 999. This could take couple of months, meanwhile you have to use fireplace for heating. Fireplace was luckily was not connected to network.

- Toilet would not flush. After two week of searching through user forums you learn that to need to download a patch Flash999. You install the patch and then realize that it contains what Microsoft calls a feature (and everybody else calls a bug) -called "backflush", as a result your washroom is flooded at random intervals. You have to take an old Win 900 computer, set a separate network for washroom and write a flush.bat program......

Lyle, this discussion could be carried far, too far in fact, I better don`t go down that road.
Just wanted to say that I still would prefer the old way, exactly because of potential consequences of software glitch.

Re: TV video delay software

Seems I started a subject that turned out to be mostly a bandwidth user.

Just thought it might be of use to those of you having the same problem I was.
