HD radio causing audio delay at drive in theater?

Hi all,

With Covid restrictions I've been going to movies at the drive in. It's been great - so great that I upgraded to a Kenwood 9906 with Maestro, etc, in my 2011 Honda Odyssey. Was really looking forward to lounging in the back at the next show, now that I could actually hear the factory sub for the first time. Imagine my confusion when there's a two second delay between the actors lips moving and me hearing the dialog in the car. I assumed it was the fault of the theater but on walking around I could hear that everyone else was in perfect sync!
I went into the HD radio settings and switched from Auto to Analog but still had the delay. When I switched to digital only I got no sound at all. I've googled a bit and searched this forum and apart from some BMW owners saying they hate HD radio, I've come up dry.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Right now I'll be bringing an actual radio from home to play next time.
I hate HD radio.
