In 7 days of logs, I see "NVP: prebuffering pause" 8 times and
"WriteAudio: buffer underrun" 3 times. Not bad. They tend to be about
2 close together, a few seconds apart, then nothing for the rest of
the day. This is just doing a "grep" on the log directory. I'm also
booting from a USB flash stick, though I doubt that has anything to do
with it.

My wife and I use this frontend daily with no problems noticed.

Is your audio always off by the same amount? I suppose it could be
some kind of alsa issue as this is a somewhat new board. I haven't
tried any of the digital outputs on this machine as I can't use them
in this location. It could be the difference.
