Time Warp

It used to be that if you had more than one TV you could go from room to room and the TV’s would be in sync. Now the audio on each TV goes off on its own. If the rooms are close enough to each other you get the effect of an audio echo. I’m sure there is a scientific explanation for this, but it seems like the cable company is playing with time. It’s good for energy conservation because you have to turn on and off as you go, but the old in sync audio made housework a lot more fun. You could follow your shows around the house. Now you either experience audio chaos or time traveling, or both. Would this be difficult to fix?
