    After a break of over a year, I decided to give Media Portal another go. Wow, things have changed a lot :) However, I've quickly run into a problem regarding recorded TV files. They play perfectly through the PC. But I'm used to "streaming" audio and video files from the PC to our Xbox running the latest xbmc. This normally works very well, but with files recorded through MP there are severe audio sync problems.. any thoughts for a simple cure as I'd love to get this working properly. Even tried burning the files to disc & ftp'ing to the Xbox's own hard drive with the same results..

    thanks

    The problem is that DVR-MS which MediaPortal 0.2.x uses isn't an open format and thus there are no perfect open source decoder/demuxer for it, ...XBMC and MPlayer (the open source video player XBMC uses) developers are however constantly working on improving the FFmpeg libavcodec/libavformat (open source decoder/demuxer), you can help them by testing the beta mplayer.dll and submitting non-working samples to the developers

    PS! This won't be a problem with MediaPortal once it permently switches to a pure MPEG-2 codec
