Description

After upgrading to the 1.1 firmware (now the latest 1.1.1.19092), audio and video of wmv streaming files are out of sync. The sync differs but is up to 1 seconds out of sync usually.

You can check this on the following streaming files:
http://livestreams.omroep.nl/npo/101tv-bb
http://livestreams.omroep.nl/npo/best24-bb


Audio:
Codec: Windows Media Audio 2 (WMA2)
Samplespeed: 48000 Hz

Video:
Codec: Windows Media Video 9 (WMV3)
Resolution: 400x224
Frames: 25

I encountered this with a lot of other streaming sources using the same codec in my app bartsidee.tv This is a real show stopper for a lot of my app users. I hope this could be fixed and you could give it high priority!

It is not possible for us to view these streams since they are geoblocked. Please upload a sample.

It would help us reproduce and fix the issue if you could please upload the file or a file sample to the "incoming" directory at
ftp://ftp.boxee.tv
user: dropbox
pass: swA4EQAt

Before uploading, Rename the file to include the issue number in its file name.
This is a write only FTP, and other people will not see your files.
You can use the FTP client from http://filezilla-project.org/

I added two sample streams. I hope it is in the correct format. I saved the streams raw using vlc player.

Noticed this as well.

Is there comming a sub version like 1.1.1 for this sort of issues, or do we have to wait 3 months for 1.2?

I can confirm that every WMV file gets out of sync if Match refresh rate is activated
if its match refreshrate is not activated some files get sync quicker
everything worked perfect before v 1.1

I hope a fix will be included in 1.1.2 it would be terrible to wait till the next major release.
