Well, I had asked if anyone had actually watched any of their videos,

By 5-10 seconds I didn't mean that A/V are 5-10 seconds out of sync,
only that for 5-10 seconds of playback at seemingly random places inside
my recordings, sync is offset (usually by a tiny--but
noticeable--amount). So, since this happens 2-3 times in a 1-hour
recording, I'll have 15-30 seconds of video with a noticeable sync
offset, but the rest is perfect.

I agree that there's something different with the output using the new
IvyTV drivers, but I'm just trying to say that the solution which--at
first--seemed to work doesn't seem to work after all.
