So basically, if I'm understanding, it's not an issue that new hardware
(GT220+ card and HDMI capable receiver) can solve?  It's obviously possible
to solve, as the PS3 does it (along with every other BD disc player).  I'm
not saying this in an accusatory manor.  On the contrary, the work that has
gone into making Myth and mplayer viable media players is astounding.  It
sounds like it's a hardware AND software issue.  I know there's a lip sync
protocol that is in HDMI 1.2+ ( I think it's 1.2).  I just assumed it was
all done on the HDMI side of things.  Sounds like that is not the case?
