Listen to Your Favorite Radio Broadcasters Call Games in Sync with Your TV!

Now, with the all-new SportSync SR-202 AM/FM Delay Radio, you can turn down the sound on your TV and watch the game while listening to your favorite radio announcers.

Radio play-by-play announcers provide the most descriptive, interesting and fun calls of pro or college sports events. But radio signals almost always run several seconds ahead of TV broadcasts which must pass through cable, satellite or HDTV systems. Before, if you tried to listen on the radio and watch on TV, you heard each play called on the radio well in advance of the same action you saw on TV….it took all the fun out of the game. Now, with the SportSync SR-202, you can delay the radio audio up to 16 seconds to exactly match what you're watching on TV.

How it Works - It's So Easy to Use!

Simply adjust the display slider to listen to the game's radio broadcast synchronized with the action on TV.

The delay slider allows you to apply from zero to sixteen seconds of delay to any radio broadcast, either AM or FM. It usually just takes one or two game plays to match the radio audio to the TV. Sometimes you can even match the sound of a referee's whistle or the bat hitting the pitched ball, for example. Anyone can use the SportSync, from practically the youngest to the oldest fan. It's simple! Note: In a few rare occasions the TV delay will exceed sixteen seconds or in even more rare occurrences the radio will run be behind the TV..

You can use the optional home theater cable to connect the SportSync to the Auxiliary input of your stereo system so you can watch the game on your big-screen TV while listening to the delayed and in-sync radio audio through your home theater speakers (with mono audio).

Why You Need It

Radio Broadcasts Almost Always Run Ahead of TV Broadcasts

Local radio broadcasts of sports events are just about always in "real time." So many people bring radios to sporting events to listen to the radio play-by-play call that the radio stations insure that their signals are going from the microphone to the transmitter and out to your radio at the speed of light - in other words in real time, without any delay.

National radio broadcasts are sometimes delayed slightly because signals are uplinked and downlinked through a satellite to your local radio station before being transmitted to your radio. But in the main, you hear the radio call the moment the action actually occurs.

TV signals require a much greater amount of processing. First, with video, there is much more bandwidth and processing required. Second, signals from the ballpark will generally be fed to the director's truck and up through a satellite and back down to a station or to a cable system "head-end" where the signals are then sent down the cable wires strung across your city. The cable signal then must be decoded by your cable TV box. If you have satellite TV there is another satellite up and downlink involved before the signal reaches you. All this processing, while happening very fast, ultimately takes some number of seconds and thus you end up with a delay. (Further delay may be built in to some TV broadcasts because of the need to insure no inappropriate words are spoken over-the-air or pictures of wardrobe malfunctions are seen.)

In the end the TV signals take longer to reach your TV screen than the broadcast radio signal. That's why you could no longer simply "Turn the sound down on your TV and turn your radio up," like you we were all instructed years ago……until now with the SportSync Radio from Scanner Master!

Tech Notes and Frequently Asked Questions

1. As radio reception can vary location by location. If you are having problems receiving a station try aiming the radio in different directions on the AM band and extending the telescoping antenna for FM band reception.

2. If you are unsure whether the delay for the sporting events you are watching is greater than 16 seconds (the difference in time between what you hear on a regular radio and what you are watching on TV) please view a game before ordering SportSync and time the difference. The delays may vary slightly game to game but if the delay is under 16 seconds then in all likelihood it will remain so.

3. At times national broadcasts will delay much longer than local broadcasts. So a delay on a local game may be 5 seconds for example and 14 seconds for the national TV broadcast.

4. Satellite TV delays are typically longer than cable or over-the-air TV broadcasts delays. Sometimes even greater than 16 seconds. The delays do vary from one sport to another.

5. If the delay is longer than 16 seconds typically for the sport you're interested in there is unfortunately nothing that SportSync can do to extend the amount of delay that the radio provides. Delays longer than 16 seconds are rare but not unprecedented.

6. In very rare cases the radio broadcast will run behind the TV. This is due to excessive time delays built in to the radio broadcast that SportSync has no control over. The best answer in these cases is to delay the TV signal by using a DVR tuner box.

Sync Radio Review December 31, 2014
Reviewer: Ed Forshey from Parkersburg, WV United States  
Without a doubt the best radio to listen to my favorite team announcers the WVU Mountaineers and still watch the game on TV.
I had the older model for about 10 years, but TV had advanced to the point that the delay on my sync radio wasn't long enough.
I ordered the newer model and have listen to both Mountaineers Bowl Football and the Basketball game vs VA Tech, and loved the delay meet the TV seconds per second of the action.
I would gladly have anyone buy this product that enjoys their local broadcasters over the TV guys.

Love this radio September 23, 2014
Reviewer: Bill from ,  
This works as advertised, and allows me to listen to my football and baseball on the radio. A couple of our TV guys just won't shut up and the radio guys are superb. I have the smaller radio, but the delays have gotten longer. Presets are nice, too n

Sport Sync September 9, 2014
Reviewer: James Schmidt from Leavenworth, KS United States  
Radio does what it is supposed to do however, sound quality leaves a lot  to be desired and it gets even worse when going to delay status.  Also, digital display is only about 75% visible.

Display screen defective June 27, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Wheaton, IL United States  
The radio itself works just fine and much better than the previous model.  However, the display screen is defective.  I have returned the radio for an exchange.
