    Hi, all!


    I am currently facing serious audio sync problem when
    capturing a vcd with my ATI Radeon 64 DDR. Frame loss
    is about 4 % for VCD. When i play the mpg file with various file
    player, everything is ok. BUt when cutting the commercials
    or viewing in VirtualDub i get a serious audio sync problem.
    Especially after transcoding and burning it as a DVD in
    Nero 6 Vision Express.

    This is my hardware:

    ATI Radeon 64 DDR
    P4 1.3 GHz
    60+80Gig HDs 5400 IDE WDC
    Creative CT5808
    ....

    Does anyone have experience with this problem.?

    Please help!

    Hi, I have ATI All-in-Wonder 128, and the same problem occured with my
    hardware. I don't know what is the source of such behaviour - I've tried
    several programs for capture - always was the same thing - sync loss. Now
    I'm using AVI IO for capture - it works perfectly - even in 3-hour
    recordings I've got perfect sync. I recommend it to you. This program is
    cheap - AFAIR it cost $30-40. Try it.

    Remek.

    I found some things out in the mean time:

    I downloaded the MultiMediaCenter 7.7 from ATI + drivers +
    WDM-Capture-Driver and i can capture hours of video without frame loss
    now. Before, i had the "original" drivers installed that cam with the
    card two years ago.
    I always switch off as many applications as possible while capturing
    (even the task bar clock) and make the video-in window as small as
    possible.
    => The audio-sync-problem seems to be solved now.

    Now my problem is that, when using Win DVD Creator for converting
    larger files to DVD, the program crashes.
    Using NERO Vision Express, everything works, but it take 8 hours to
    convert and the resulting quality seems poor (I tried the "Long"
    setting from ATIs "Video in". Maybe the resolution is not good enough)
