    Unacceptable Remote Control Delay - lagging- TAKE 2

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Anyone know how to fix things so that the Vudu responds to your remote control in real time, instead of the horrible delayed reaction??

    Thanks for your help

    then HeadHodge replied:
    I use my Logitech Harmony remote with VUDU's IR Dongle and don't have any problems.

    Some people have posted problems with the RF remote provided by VUDU, and it usually boils down to some sort of RF interference. I believe there is a way to pair the remote with the VUDU box at another frequency, but I don't know how to do that

      Re: Unacceptable Remote Control Delay - lagging- TAKE 2

      (for some reason my original posting was removed?)

      UPDATE:
      with further testing this lag seems to only happen when I am connected with RCA cables (red/yellow/white), seems fine with connected with composite cables (red/blue/green with sep audio)

      Why would this make such a crazy difference with how the remote responds?

      I found the advanced setting tab with a remote setting to tweek -but it's only for sensitivity and does not change anything. I saw nothing of the "channel" setting HeadHodge mentioned.

      Anyone have any thoughts?
      Support from Vudu is closed - do they help here?

        Do your Red/Yellow/White cables go through some sort of gear that could be introducing the lag?

        Tell us more about how you have everything connected, what gear you own (list the make/model) for TV and Sound (and switching devices).

          The channel switches are inside the remote itself. Remove the battery cover. You will need to do some "pairing" steps if you change things.

          But yeah, there should be no difference between the outputs. Are you sure you aren't running the Red/Yellow/White cables into a DVR? If so, the DVR buffers things and you'll get the lag.
