Well I don't know for sure, but I'd be pretty confident that it's
referring to the offset between sound and picture.

Some of the tools that mytharchive uses can detect an offset between
the two and, presumably, mythtv can try and return the offset to zero.
 However, 13ms isn't very much, assuming that the sound is behind the
picture, so I doubt you'd notice it.  It may even be deliberate, to
avoid the sound ever getting ahead of the picture, which is *very*

If you've never noticed lip-sync problems then I'd leave the offset turned off.
