If the sound is ahead of the video then it could be what you're
hearing is the sound as it comes in on the TV signal, rather than the
sound as captured and recorded with the video which is usually 2-3
seconds behind the signal coming in. You need to mute the line in on
your mixer and set capture to record. Should be able to find lots
about that in the archives or Jarod's guide.
