I just switched from my comonent cables to HDMI. I notice a lag in sound when first changing channels and even a delay in switching channels.
comcast does not certify the Motorola 3416 with HDMI but sound quality is better through the HDMI cable once it synchs (takes a couple of seconds). I plan to keep an eye on it but cleaning up the cable jungle behind my reciever, DVD player and cable box is worth it.

Interesting, I also have a 3416 & the box's compression settings didn't do anything for my volume swings via digital audio connections. In fact, they were so bad (regardless of the compression setting used) that I scrapped the digital audio & went with analog left/right stereo connections, plus an external volume leveler (incorporated into my a/v switcher)...
Even on the analog audio side, the volume swings were still too much for me regardless of the box's compression settings & I found that I needed that external volume circuit. Then again, my audio's going through an a/v receiver, I'm not using my tv's speakers for audio, so maybe those swings are more tolerable that way. Come to think of it, there was one (analog) compression setting on the 3416 that squashed the level pretty severely & that's why I didn't want to use it, I thought it killed the dynamic range of everything too much. Maybe that's working for some in controlling the average levels...

How did you get at the 3416's settings? The setup button on the remote doesn't bring up a set-up menu. I've adjusted everything that can be adjusted on the AVR and TV.

I've found that lost sound can be restored by hitting the quick replay button. At least that's how it works with recorded programs, which is all I watch.
It should work with live TV because if you're watching, it's being recorded to the buffer.
