I'm not sure if it's been answered yet, but I thought I'd throw this out:<br><br><br>mplayer uses either LAVC or FAME [depending on how mplayer was compiled/configured] to convert EVERYTHING to MPEG1 before it is sent to the DVB Device. In essence, it transcodes in realtime.
<br><br>Not too efficient, but since transcoding to MPEG 1 takes little resources, most people probably don't notice.<br><br>I know it's probably what most of you didn't want to hear, but I figured you guys would want to know.

I joined the mplayer mailing list and have tried to seek help/information from those nice folks.. The following is part of one of my exchanges. Maybe the part about the timestamp may be of some help?<br><br><span>

<br>> out... And a good place to start is by comparing the differences between<br>> the software that has the problem and software that doesn't. We're<br>> trying to figure out what mplayer does, if anything, with regards to
<br>> repacking, the pes layer, pcr data, etc. during the "playback" of a VDR "recording".<br><br></span><div style="direction: ltr;">nothing particular: the pes packetization is as standard as you can get,
<br>except that IIRC there's a timestamp on every single frame,<br>rather than once every 0.5-0.7 seconds; this fact alone can make a<br>lot of difference during playback.<br>Does the desync that you are experiencing get worse with time or does
<br>it regularly decrease and next increase?</div><br>
