Despite of the lost frame, the playback seems to be in sync. On the 
other side, I havent heard any jumps in sound yet.
This could only be possible when the timing of audio and video would be 
different and the software would try to keep video and audio in sync by 
dropping sometimes a single video frames.
On the other side, if the same recording works when playing back video 
with the MP2 track, it looks like a buffering or packaging issue, as if 
in this case the DD packages would not fit into a certain time scale.

With kind regards
