Ok here are my findings.
The Sync issue only happens the first time you play a .tp recording You can the video stutter-freeze for half a second or more, and then the audio is off by about one second. (doesnt get worse or better, sync stays the same)
Here's the interesting thing. If I click stop, and then play, the sync is perfect. If I close media player, and start the file from scratch it has the sync issue again for the first time only. (stop, play fixes it)
This is the same behavior in Windows Media Center, via My Videos as well.
Again, playing back via OnAir app is always good.
What might cause the stutter?
I have the latest fresh build of Windows Media Center 2005 + 100% of all microsoft/windows updates.
I run the latest version of NVidia Pure Video Plat
I have the FULL package of KLITE codec (I unchecked most everything like FFDSHOW, and only used XviD,DivX, h.264, CoreAAC, AAC, AC3 package)
I have Real and QuickTime alternative packages installedHere is my complete brand new HTPC hardware setup.
I have Acronis True Image so I can roll back to pre codec environment to test if needed. I can record a video and post it to you tube if you want to see the exact sync problem in action.
EDIT: Ok, I played with SageTV Beta 6 a bit more. I let it record an HD QAM channel. It records the file as a .MPG Both Media Player and Media Center dont have a sync issue. but............
The aspect ratio is funny though. 16:9 is tall/skinny like 4:3. 4:3 digital recordings are even MORE skinny then. Playback in SageTV is ok though?
We are right on a edge of getting easy to use tivo like QAM. recordings. I hope these minor bugs can be worked out soon. (cant wait) Let me know what else I can do to help deliver useful info to improve things further.
