[snip feature list]

I've been testing this since I announced that I had merged it into my tree, 
and it has been working just fine on both my desktop and epia configurations. 
It might be a little slower to sync on my epia, as my previous setup was 
almost instant. I have also noticed that a very large difference between 
audio and video (avsync_delay ~= -900000) will cause it not to aquire a sync 
lock. Would it be possible to drop audio or video frames within the first few 
seconds of a start/channel change to really speed up syncing?
