Audio/Video out of sync with WTV/DVR-MS Conversion
Hi, this is a bit complicated, so I will break it down in bullet points:
*Did clean install of Windows 8 on a Toshiba laptop in February
*Few days later, converted some dvr-ms files which came out OK, no sync issues.
*Few days ago, installed latest version of MCEBuddy (the first time I forgot to remove the previous installation, so I went back and uninstalled the new version, and then reinstalled the new version)
*Now, when I try to convert the exact same dvr-ms files I converted back in February, the audio is in sync at the beginning of the video and seems to get progressively more out of sync later in the video
*I tried using the -ss 30 parameter, but that didn't help
*audiodelay was already set to skip
*I am not removing any commercials from the videos
*I have tried both iPad (non hi-res) and M4V Apple Conversions
Since the conversion initially worked OK with no sync issues right after I installed Windows 8, I'm thinking there might be a compatibility issue with some program I installed later on. I have gone through and removed most non-essential programs from Windows
startup, but that has not solved the issue. One program I installed later on was Cyberlink PowerDVD 10, which seems to have it's own Windows 8 issues, but I removed any related PowerDVD programs from Windows startup.
Are there any known compatibility issues with other programs that may be causing this issue? Do you have any other recommendations for resolving the audio sync problem? The audio offset does not seem to be constant either, as the video progresses, it seems
to be at least several seconds off later on in the video. The video is only 1/2 hour long.
The log files that are generated are very large also, 10 to 50 mb, I don't know if that is normal or not. Unfortunately, I don't have the log files for the original conversions I did back in February.
One last thing, my laptop has an i5 cpu which is usually maxed out during the conversion, I don't know if that is normal or not, or could be causing a problem.
Thanks ahead for the help.
