I just bought the Mars II and have a couple of questions when I connect my computer to the Mars via HDMI:
- The video and the audio are out of sync by about 0.5s. While I understand many devices usually have a delay due to processing and signal transmission, audio should have a delay to match the hdmi delay. It seems quite sloppy that audio would go out first and video would come out about half second afterwards. This seems like something that should be fixable via software, I hope Anker releases an update soon. This problem is HDMI only, and I’ve seen several people mentioning this. There is no such issue when playing things through the built in App.
- I noticed something strange when connecting my Macbook to the projector: the video mode of the projector seems to change to 1920x1080. Is this an undocumented/unsupported feature? is this just wrong information that’s being displayed and I’m seeing a downscaled image?
These images show the message being displayed on screen, and an example of the outputted image (the DPI seems quite high for 720)
Anyways… I wonder I don’t see the audio/video sync issue mentioned more often. I was able to fix that by using my VLC settings, but this lag means the Mars II is unfit for some uses like connecting a video game console.
