Frame Offset is when external video and audio going to the built-in firewire port or a third party interface appears to be several frames behind the video you are watching on your computer screen.  No matter what signal format you use for external monitoring, all digital video and audio interfaces introduce processing delays to signals sent out of the computer.  This offset is also known as latency. 

You can compensate for the delay by changing the frame offset value in Final Cut Pro.  Frame offset is active only when your sequence real-time effects are handled by Final Cut.  To change your Frame Offset, go to System Settings, and then click on the Playback Control Tab.  You will see that the default setting for Frame Offset is at 4.  Enter an amount in whole frames between 0-30; set this value according to how many frames your external audio/video is off from your display.  Click OK when finished.
