Oh!  That explains a lot because there's a delay between my bedroom and the living room, too!  Thanks.

Quoting JonJon:

Everyone in this discussion should watch on the same channel because cable and off-air channels are not always in-sync.  Even watching the same show on the same cable company has delays.  When my mom and I discuss Dancing with the Stars or Jeopardy I can hear the show coming back from commercial on her tv significantly sooner than on my own tv and she's only 60 miles away from me. 

It's inevitable that unless everyone watches on the same channel there will be some lag time and some participants will be disadvantaged during the discussion.

I believe there is a delay if you are watching something in HD versus regular signal.  I have HD in my bedroom and regular cable in the living room and there is a delay when both TV's are on and set on the same station.

I wish someone would ask Romney to define:

Middle income vs high earners. HARD, DEFINED NUMBERS!
