My WD TV Live (Firmware 1.05.04_V (and previous versions)) shows problems when playing H264 .avi files.
If played from the beginning without interruption, usually video and audio are and stay synchronous.
If interrupted (e.g… stopped after playing for a while and the same video resumed to the last position) there is a delay between video and audio; usually audio is recognizably delayed (up to a second) that won’t go away.
It happens with different files; it does not matter if the files are on a USB device or streamed.
Unfortunately there is no way to manually adjust the delay in WD TV Live (as offered by XBMC, and XBMC is also able to detect and eliminate the delays).
Codec: H264- MPEG4- AVC(Part10)
MPEG Audio Layer 1/2/3 (MPEG)
Stereo, 48000, 192 kb/s
The files are recordings of TV movies retrieved from an internet TV program recording service (onlinetvrecorder.com) in HQ-Quality, using their retrieval and add-removing tools (no matter which type/version of tool used).
