I'm having an issue with TV audio delay on my two CONNECT:AMPs when grouped with my Playbar. There is a slight delay in audio in the amp audio compared to what's coming out of the Playbar. Is this standard/expected behavior?
Samsung NU8000 TV connected to Playbar. Playbar connected directly to router via CAT5e. Playbar playing audio from the TV and grouped with CONNECT:AMP 1 and CONNECT:AMP 2.
CONNECT:AMP 1 connected to kitchen speakers, connected directly to router via CAT5e
CONNECT:AMP 2 connected to sunroom speakers, connected to CONNECT:AMP 1 via CAT5e

It is expected behavior for grouped rooms to be slightly behind the Playbar/Playbase/Beam when playing TV sources. The reason for this is the grouped rooms are using 2.4 GHz wireless, which does not have the low latency of 5 GHz used for surrounds/Sub. Unfortunately, older units do not have 5 GHz radios, and even if they did, Sonos has found that 5 GHz may have low latency, but it does not do as well going through walls/floors, so it is good for surround sound in the same room and not so good for audio between rooms.
