I have two AppleTV's one with audio sourced over HDMI ARC and the other with two stereo HomePods. I see a noticeable audio latency and video pause when tuning to a channel/stream on the AppleTV with the HomePods over airplay. Where as the HDMI ARC tunes quickly and audio and video are sync'd and start up quickly.
I am using the experimental audio driver and that has made a difference, but does not take care of the delayed video/audio streaming startup.
As a comparison, I can use Spectrum TV app and other streaming apps, and don't see the streaming startup delay like I see in Channels.
Is this a know issue? If so, do we know if a fix is coming or do I need to provide detailed diagnostics to Channels development team?
