PLEASE can we not let this drop again? I've mentioned this on the list for
years and NO-ONE seems to want to address the problem. Surely Klaus and
Werner can have a dialogue and look to getting the problem fixed? I'm happy
to isolate a short clip of video where the sync goes out so that someone can
look at it? Plugging mplayer into VDR to fix it is a fudge and shouldn't be
necessary, if mplayer works OK with the recordings then surely we can get
VDR to do so too?

This happens extremely regularly for me in the UK, both on DVB-T and
sometimes even on DVB-S. I have a fully featured Technotrend DVB-S card and
a budget DVB-T card. I mostly see it on recordings, but also recently on
live TV.. :-( Changing channels or ff/rew by 1 minute fixes the problem, but
it is really frustrating.

Klaus / Werner, there are a LOT of people out there with this problem,
please can we all work together to get this fixed once and for all, then VDR
will really be perfect... Let's not let this go AGAIN.. :-\

Anything I can do to help, count me in.
