Smart Tv’s in different rooms of smaller house

So I have a by-level house upstairs we have a 65 inch Samsung smart tv and downstairs a TCL Roku 55 inch TV. When watching a sporting event my TV downstairs in ahead of the TV upstairs. I remeber back when HD first came out it would happen at bars with the delay on TV’s. I know they are both on HD channel through our comcast cable box. What setting must be changed so this wont happen. Is it as easy as just changing the speech rate mode or something which I doubt would would work. Very strange I havent played around with the TV upstairs yet. Please lmk what you think the issue may be. Thank you

The internal circuitry of HD TVs can cause delay. Different TVs may have different delays. Nothing you can do about this.

Suggest you might run an extension speaker from the downstairs set upstairs (or vice versa). Then both sounds will be in sync though one picture will be slightly out of sync.

How large is your delay, toilet room echo, half a word out, or seconds or more. How are the two TV's watching the same comcast box, are you using a pure hdmi splitter, or some kind of HDMI over cat6 boxes? (13years smarthome tech)
