I browsed this forum a bit to find some info about the problem i'm having, but couldn't find it, so i'm opening a new thread. Thanks to this site I got myself a NEC3500AG a few months ago, but i'm not real happy yet:
The problem is, when watching DVD movies on my pc, the sound is not in sync with the characters. What I mean is, for instance when someone speaks, the sound is not correct with his lips (i'm not English, hopefully I describe it correctly)
It doesn't matter if it's a original DVD or a copy, happens with both. I did notice that it does seems ok after an hour or so...
Does this have something to do with some buffers or something? Maybe the sound can't keep up with the video or the other way around?
Also, when watching DVD's the picture stutters a bit, it's not fluent. Especially when for instance the scene has a car driving by slowly you can see it very clearly that it stutters, it doesn't play smoothly like on my tv. Maybe this has something to with sound problem I described above? I use PowerDVD 5 and sometimes M$ Mediaplayer 10, but the problem is in both.
I was thinking to rip all the movies I want to watch to the harddisk, and play it from there, but thats a lot of work to do each time.
Any ideas how to improve this? Is this maybe a simple codec or something I have to install. Thanks a lot.
