Awful sound delay using 5.1 over ARC

My previous setup had everything going into my AVR with a single HDI output going to the TV.. Perfect.

Then I got a new 4k HDR set where I'd quite like to make use of HDR (initially just for my PS4,) and the TV's apps for both convienience and 4k output.

Now I'm having an awful time with connectivity and sound issues.

To make use of HDR I have to plumb the PS4 directly into the TV (AVR won't pass HDR through), then for audio I'm making use of ARC to get the output from both PS4 and the TVs internal apps back to the AVR.

Amongst other intermittent problems, I'm getting a horrific ~1s audio delay with 5.1. On the PS4 dashboard I can fully cycle between 3-4 'tiles' before the corresponding sound catches up. :/

Any ideas what's going on there?

I got this with a philips soundbar through HDMI and Optical, took it back and swapped it with an LG and it was better but still delayed, just had to live with it in the end. Never had the issue with my Cambridge soundbase. I don't know why the only adjustment is to delay the sound further, why don't TVs have an adjustment for delaying the picture instead?

Good luck, its PITA!
