[Q] (Nook HD+) Netflix audio lags behind video on every custom ROM

I have yet to find a ROM where the sound doesn't lag the video on the Netflix app. Even using the custom kernels makes no difference.

If I go back to the stock Nook HD+ ROM, there's no audio lag at all.

Really frustrating as I'd love to run a custom ROM but primarily use the Nook HD+ for surfing the web, youtube and Netflix.

All three Nook HD+ I've had have the same issue so it's not an issue with a specific device.

Any suggestions?

I have used CyanogenMod (now running 11.2 M8) for over a year with no such audio issues.

brand new to this... just installed CM 11 latest nightly build for the first time on the Nook HD+. All seems fine, except I notice this problem too. Audio lags in Netflix. Bummer.

Well, audio can lag over cable TV as well as other stuff. If anyone could ever truly solve the problem because they can't.

Maybe background service(s) from other app(s) doing something funky as they can run during the video (for instance email can still be received during playback). You didn't say if it was a fresh new install with the least amount of installed apps possible (most controlled environment possible) . Bn rom unless rooted (I guess) wouldn't have access to all the same apps that could be installed.

There could be other differences as well that you haven't taken into account. Is the stream running at the same quality? Are all the nook apps (including internal like gapps) fully updated on the bn rom? It could be that the newer versions are more taxing on the hardware. Etc. All theoretical but what else is there with no concrete answer.

It was a fresh install. I only have a handfull of apps. All apps are current.
