Add an option to sync audio +/-
Would be nice to be able to resync audio in say +/-50ms steps. On the PC I use the AC3 filter to do this for me.
10ms steps would be better!
Too many of my films that play fine on my mac and pc go wonky with the audio on the WDTV Live -- the ability to sync the audio manually, if needed, would be excellent.
This is a real problem for me on the WDTV Live, please please please can this be look at.

I have a wd tv 2 gen and there`s an out of synch between hdmi and optical audio, in all files mkv, ac3 etc. When i turn on the tv speakers i can hear this delay.
It would be great find a way to fix this problem with this option (like the subtitle adjust in ms) .
Samsung led 7020 and onkyo tx-sr500.
Audio sync issue seems to be fixed in beta 11, but i still think this feature will be very useful going forward
We need this feature to syncronize audio and video manually without using any soft to do it and waste our time... Please vote for this feature.
audio sync needed badly!

I agree with you totally. Come on WD... Listen to your customers.
I think the key thing about a feature like this is that regardless of what issue may be present, whether it be that someone encoded a file badly, a user's equipment is causing an audio delay, or a fault in the WD TV...this is an easy workaround/fix for all of them!
Rather than have users complain that a certain type of file/codec isn't playing back in sync and their player is unusable, at least they can press a few buttons to make any movie watchable while WD hopefully works on real fixes for audio sync.
It'd be good to get some feedback from WD on this :)
I agree with znyx. If WD don't fix the major sound sync issue that has plagued the mkv playback of the WDTV, then this addition is needed ASAP....
Fix teh sound sync issue, or give us this option to manually adjust it.
I can't believe how this isn't near the TOP REQUESTED item?!
Come on WD, this is a serious limitation!
There NEEDS to be an audio sync adjustment, +/- 1-frame or 50ms increments.
Oh god yes please add this feature. I have come across many MKV and AVI files that play fine on computers but are out of sync on the WDTV. Regardless of what is causing it this would fix it! I suggest this method:
1. You play a movie (and you notice the audio is out of sync)
2. Press 'Option' on the remote
3. Select a new 'A/V Sync' icon
4. A horizontal bar appears, showing a marker in the middle, and a slider which can move to the left or right
5. You use the remote to move the slider left or right using the << and >> buttons until the audio is in sync
6. Press Option again to go back to the movie
Of course the movie would have to continue to play as you do this. As you move the slider it'd be nice if it gave you a message on screen, something like "Adjust audio forward +50ms" or "Adjust audio backward -100ms" etc. If there has to be a slight pause as the movie 'syncs' to whatever setting you have chosen, then I suggest you see a flashing "Adjusting..." message as it does so.
I don't know if all movies could be adjusted in 50ms or 100ms increments. I would think that processing the audio by a set delay like that might cause unnecessary strain on the hardware, and cause stuttering or choppy playback. Perhaps it would be easier on the hardware if each 'step' in the adjustment actually shifts the video ahead or behind by one frame, two frames, three frames, etc. Just a thought.
It would be good if the sync setting for each movie could be stored as well.
This feature has been implemented in XBMC, MythTV and other software and is very usefull to sync movies downloaded from internet.
This would help me, cause i don't know why, but my player makes several movies out of sync, so this would be a tool to fix the audio delay.
My wife gets annoyed. When the GBPvr software converts MPG2 to Xvid, (Using ffmpeg) sometimes the audio gets out of synch. I realize this is a transcoding problem, but the ability to nudge the audio ahead/back allows you to resync it. VLC has this feature.
I'd vote for this... but I'm out of votes :-(
