Are there any other remuxers that you have tested this with? vdrsync-1.3? The
new Extern remuxer method works with replex, but the A/V sync is off.  Also,
when I try to use streamdev's internal remuxer, the sound is then missing. I
heard that mplayer has a new remuxer that may work.. perhaps that it is possible
to call mplayer or vlc in externremux.sh as the remuxer.
