Not that much!

Not a lot of progress on the cabinet today but on the positive side the finger is healing up nicely.

sync errors can also be caused by the viewing equipment, particularly if you take audio from a TV to reproduce via a hifi system or external 'sound bar' as so many do.

I listen to 99% of TV on the built in speakers. Occasionally I’ll fire up the hi-fi but it’s an analogue connection and doesn’t cause delay issues.
The rest of the programmes are in sync’ it just seems to be archival material that’s not correctly synchronised.
A mate of mine recently bought an OLED 4k TV and sound bar and there are issues.

Oh I've still got some nice lights and nameplate to make, don't worry, it's only for a given definition of 'done'.
What I won't have any excuses for is not finishing off my various projects.
Anyway, I'll 'finish' it tomorrow and post some rough sample recordings. Proper ones will follow in due course along with some REW measurements.

Looks good.
Now you need to invite people in to assess the performance and usability.
This should be a range from highly experienced mix engineers like Eddie, to laymen like... um... Me :wave:

I must say that a computer using 300-500W of power in a small thermally insulated enclosure with no ventilation isn't going to work for very long before achieving meltdown. :(

Reliably fallible.
