Audio losing sync during playback, MKV


#1

I have several MKV’s that play fine on my Macs and PCs but on my WDTV Live (firmware 1.04.10_B but same problem on earlier firmwares as well) the audio gets out of sync very quickly. The WDTV Live is hooked up to my 40" LCD with HDMI only. Media info for the file is:

 Any ideas? I bought this box to avoid having to bring my MacBook to the TV but as of now, I still have to as the WDTV Live failes to playback the files properly. Any feedback is appriciated!

Until new firmware comes out I would roll back to previous to play MKV.  Wireless or wired connection?.  Does the file play on an attached storage drive?

Sorry yes, this is played from a USB-stick.

Decided to not purchase another WDTV Live because of this issue so the lack of support has resulted in loss of business, what a shame :confused:
