I try to use PowerDVD 9 for BluRay playback, because all other programs or versions of PowerDVD give me severe LipSync issues! Audio is mostly ahead of video to an extent where it is really disturbing. With PowerDVD 9, the problem still exists, but it's less severe and seems to go back in perfect sync from time to time (for a short period of time).
Unfortunately, PDVD9 gives me another problem: quite often, the video playback seems to get stuck! A few frames are repeated in an endless loop, the audio continues. This only seems to happen at chapter marks! The only way to fix it is to stop playback, restart it and then manually skip to the chapter mark. Then, the playback will continue normally. Moving the playback position back a bit, just before the chapter mark, will produce the same problem at exactly the same chapter mark position again. It doesn't seem to occur in all movies, but in many.
Does anybody have the same experience or does somebody know what the problem could be? I'd also like to know how I could finally fix the lipsync problems...
My specs are: ATI 4670, HDMI to receiver, latest Catalyst 9.2 and Realtek 2.18 drivers, Vista 32 bit, PDVD audio set to HDMI (LPCM or DTS/AC3 - doesn't make any difference (LPCM channel mapping is broken in PDVD9 however, but this is a known bug)).
