I Have A Dvr 942 Receiver And A New Sansui Plasma Tv. The Lip Sync Is Off A Lot. Dish Replaced The Receiver But I Still Have The Problem. I'am Looking At A/v Receivers With Audio Delay. The One That I'am Looking At Has 160 Ms Delay. Do You Think This Will Be Enough Delay Or Should I Look For A Different Receiver? THANKS.

Lip sync is an issue with HDMI right now with many manufacturers not just E*. The problem is that input devices are getting more complicated and they are trying to write their own source code. Hopefully this should clear up in the future.

So down to business. Which receivers are you looking at? The Denon 3806 is a very nice receiver at 1299. It has 1080p pass through through HDMI and audio sync delay. It does not however have a Firewire connector. Might not be important depending on how you want to connect in the future.

I am using a Yamaha AVR-5990, that I just got when I got my Sony XBR 60" HDTV. It works great, and you can find it at Best Buy for $1000, or lots cheaper online.
It has 2 HDMI ports. You should check it out.

Have you looked at the HK AVR 240? It has excellent sound, meets your requirements, has 80ms of lip synch and looks great in a HT setup. Plus you can get it for less than $350!

Since you don't want to use the receiver for video switching (I wouldn't recommend it anyway unless you're doing digital (HDMI) switching) you're really only looking for a good receiver which pushes out good, clean sound, with lip synch and supports most HT sound formats. Another bonus, everyone that comes over is absolutely stunned how cool it looks.

On my Denon 3806 I can set up to 250ms delay. However, and correct me if I'm wrong, I was under the impression from reading the 622 threads that the audio is behind the video, in which case being able to set the audio delay won't help you. Don't have a 622 yet to double-check this.
