Perhap, can it related to CPU/GPU driver? I counted several users in here with the same AsRock E350M1 mobo as mine. It seems to playback BD in full 1080P video with DTS-HD and TrueHD audio without issue on this mobo.
Or, maybe we are just got lucky!
Here are my configurations- post #30.

Skipping introduces again a slight packet loss, not really noticeable, then again solid playback.
This is running an ATI 5670 with 12.1 CCC and in both DTS-HD MA and TrueHD formats

Okay, that's good to know. The intel gpu is not the best for sync, but honestly after their last round of driver updates it's not terribly worse than Nvidia or ATI. Every video card I have tested has dropped frames at 23.976.
You say you are "watching content with refresh synced to content" yet in the setup pic you posted a couple of pages back you had the sync options all disabled. Do you set your desktop to 1080p/24?
Anyways, I'm sure there are better hardware options out there for sync, but I've actually been very very happy with how well the i3 has handled everything I have thrown at it. Having to sync it with XBMC to avoid dropping frames is normally not a cause for concern.

Change to 'Adjust Display Refresh Rate to Match Video' (24hz) and "Bingo" audio delay.

The pic posted is how I normally run - I only did the refresh sync to content to have hard numbers to give you. The desktop settings are irrelevent on my main rig as the "desktop" is the TV and the capabilities are all sent back from the TV thru the amp to the GPU via HDMI handshaking. So the TV & amp will report that they handle 1080/24p and 1080/60p. The GPU can override them to settings I give it as need be.
@steelman - exactly, there are some sync issues on start and skip as the code has to search packets for sync frames to lock on to. That cannot be avoided, nor is it really an issue.
We got pretty far off-topic here, but given the discussion wandered to dropped frames I wanted to let you know what is working well. Bluray has probably had hundreds of posts over the last year recommending the same GPU series, which for $35 solves a lot of issues.
For those who can't live with the dropped frames (just like I can't live without my 24bit audio lol) try this card or try the Re-Clock route. I can tell you which is easier

I will try to avoid taking it further off topic, but reclock is not necessary. The sync options in XBMC are more than capable of achieving perfect sync of audio and video with a 23.976 display without having to bring reclock into the picture.
If the price to pay for that is that True-HD doesn't work quite right when bit streamed, I'm willing to live with that.

Perfect on my rig bitstreamed and if decode to LPCM works on yours then that's excellent - you are losing nothing if it's a 16bit TrueHD track not 24bit. Even AE decoding of TrueHD is currently at 16bit, passthrough or bitstreaming is the only way to get 24bit TrueHD. Unless it's a blue-ray concert with a great singer on a decent stereo I don't think you're missing anything though!

@voip-ninja - try one thing? Turn off or disable "Use a fullscreen window rather than true fullscreen" and try your TrueHD bitstream again.

Already have it set to disabled for fullscreen window instead of true fullscreen. I have not had a chance to test again this evening, but I will try to test tomorrow and I can post a debug log of the dropouts as well as the settings I am using. Thanks for offering to help.

Since using this version when I pull up OSD I see that something else is being displayed 'ae',which is measured in 'ms' This seems to steadily go up that by the end of a 2hr film its showing as 11.1ms. Can anyone explain what this is please?
By the way I am getting no frame drops or audio sync issues
My rig is..520gt intel i7, feeding into pioneer amp then passing through to my Pioner KRP600M monitor.
