So I began having the exact same A/V synch problem with KGO, but it
only appeared about a week ago - I am recording it off Comcast cable.
At first I figured it was all 720p content, but after closer
inspection, it appears only to affect ABC shows recorded from KGO-DT.

My question is how can I apply the fix?  Do I have to wait for .23 to
be released?  My frontend is a mac, and I have never been able to get
osxpackager.pl to successfully complete, so I just download the
precompiled binaries...  is there any hope of this being fixed in
