    I have setup mediaportal to use ffdshow for live tv simply because it's up scaling, de-interlacing and post processing is excellent compared to that of my on-board HD3200 and mediaportal alone.

    The only trouble I have with it is when I initially turn on live TV the audio is out of sync by around 1 second. Now if I skip back 15s in the live tv buffer it syncs up without issue. Recorded TV (of the same show) and DVD's are fine.

    Anyone have any idea what this could be?

    I'm having a similar problem with FFDshow only too. I converted my dvd's to mkv and every 10mins audio is 1s out of sync. Happens only with ffdshow, tested with MPCHC own codecs - no problems there. :( Looking forward to a solution as well.

    well, how to say, a lot of DVD ripper has the sync problem. I am using moyea DVD ripper now, I can not say it can satisfy you needs very well but it is already good enough and the after-sale service is good too.

    Hope will help.
