Looking for some help regarding a home theatre setup with a Mini. Currently I have the unit plugged into a Pioneer Receiver (VSX 822K) via HDMI with the receiver plugged into my flat screen via another HDMI. Ultimately I am hoping to use the mini as a media server with plex but my initial attempts have been unsuccessful due to audio sync issues (audio is well ahead of video) on most of the files I have attempted to play. After doing some research I noticed that this seems to be an issue with certain file types on Plex so I switched over to itunes as a test. Sync issues were not an issue initially but now seem to pop up intermittently even through itunes. Could this be a simple problem like a faulty HD cord running from the receiver to the TV or potentially a bigger issue? Would it make sense to plug the mini directly into the TV and run a optical cable to the receiver just for audio? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
