Thanks for pointing out the new build - but I'm afraid playback is still 
usually good for me only on DVB-T/T2 recordings stripped to 2 streams or 
converted to mkv.  Mostly I get good audio but video that goes in jerks, 
updated around once a second.  I found and enabled the 'match frame 
rate' setting and now playback is preceded by notice that it's at 50 Hz. 
  And since I often have similar content that has been processed in 
different ways it's easy to get confused...
