The lipsync delay makes EyeTV unwatchable. I have had to set the EyeTV audio output to internal speakers. Very disappointing.Anyone experiencing lag when AirPlaying from Mac to the HomePod? I can't even watch Netflix because the lag is too big. Strangely, AirPlaying to my TV has no lag.
The lag occurs with iTunes as well.
Yeah I'm having the same issue two when using the HomePod as a audio output via sound settings but when using iTunes to airplay music only to HomePod have no issues...
Hopefully Airplay 2 fixes this issue.
It would be useful if Airplay had a setting to delay audio or video to sync them. But I guess that is too much to hope for since the Mac is supported less and less these days.I'm basically experiencing the same thing. I believe this has been discussed as well on one of the other threads, that there is a minor lag built-in, I am guessing the streaming to HomePod is due to a small amount of buffering that is done in order to reduce disruptions that may occur in wi-fi transmissions.
By lag, do you mean it takes 1-2 seconds before any audio is played? If so, welcome to the world of AirPlay. I am hoping AirPlay 2 addresses this but I have seen no such documentation or acknowledgement. If you're just playing audio, this should not matter to most but its definitely a pain if you're trying to stream audio and using any speaker as computer speakers.
I believe live interactive video like a zoom call will always have lag on any wireless speaker. Can’t get around that because it’s a precise real time event, and all wireless audio has some lag. Even Bluetooth has a little lag, but airplay has more because it has more bandwidth and more data to carry.Yes - I am getting this too. Makes it almost impossible to use HomePod for things like Zoom calls etc and as I use a ProDisplay XDR I am now considering having to get a different speaker for system audio / zoom calls and then only use HomePod for the music app :-(
Tell me about it..Thanks subjonas for your super helpful reply.
It's such a shame to have to get some wired speakers when the HomePods sound so good, but it seems that this will be necessary :-(
