Picture and sound out of sync

When I watch a BD movie the speech goes in and out of sync with the actors mouths. Is this an HDMI cable problem? A poor BD player problem? Or is there a setting I didn't adjust?

The HDMI cables are from Monoprice.
The BD player is an Insignia.
The HDTV is a Toshiba LCD.

Yes I know I put "sink" in the title lol. Cant change that with the edit.

I edited/fixed the title for you, but you could have done it by clicking on the Advanced Editing button once you go into edit mode. ;)

Try turning off ALL video/PQ "enhancements". These require extra processing and delay the video being sent and they actually hurt the PQ anyway. ;)

There are not to many options on the Insignia BD player. I messed with a few of them, leaving alone the ones that i was not sure what they did. Watched "Brothers" last night and didnt notice it so hopefully that worked.

BTW, dont watch Brothers. Very bad movie.

I meant turn off all "enhancements" in the TV not the BD player. ;)

I had an insignia blu ray player. it had alot of problems. like it could not play netflix unless it was on pcm. I would get picture, but not sound. the star trek blurays would get an angle button during the episodes.. very annoying.. I took it back.

I may take mine back as well. It is only a few weeks old and is already making a high pitched noise. Loud enough you can hear it over the movie :mad:

Darn near any other brand would be better...

Except maybe Samsung which would likely be at least just as bad after the 1 year warranty ends. :p :lol:

So then what would be my best bet for one in the $175 range?

I would say look at the Panasonic and Sony line of Blu-ray players or if you would be willing to invest a little bit more, go for the Oppo BDP-80, the king of less expensive players.
