Well that is great news! We are coming further
I tried this new release today with DVR-MS files from my mediacenter 2005 and indeed there is sound, but the sound is out of sync a few seconds on my Xbox.
Is it possible that I have to do a complete reinstall of XBMC or are there more people who get out of sync sound.
I use a analoge tv signal on my mediacenter 2005.

I would say yes, the video on the patch that had no sound was better, with less artifacts. With the new sound fix I noticed that the sound was also "off" just a bit, but it is MUCH better than no sound at all. :0 Will wait next update to see what happens.

Before I say anything just want to say THANKS SO MUCH to all those working on this and submitting bug reports! I use Meedio and the only option to record is DVR-MS. Converting and having both formats just takes up too much space and getting this working will complete my absolute media playing utopia with my XBOXs.
I couldn't really tell from these posts if the audio was suppose to be fixed but it isn't working for me but the video looked great. I get a little audio static at first then it goes silent. All FF/RW controls seemed to work fine also.
I just loaded the latest posted T3CH last night...uh this morning..it was a long night/morning but I was too excited to get this working. I even tried Tversity as a Upnp with Transcoding always set to on to see if I could get it work but couldn't.

I loaded the Final 2.0 Slim today and still no sound for my DVR-MS. I am going to try to load the 8/13 T3CH since it was stated there was sound in that load. If that doesn't work it may be that Meedio is using a different encoding for DVR-MS than Media Center. I may change around the codecs it is using to encode to see if that makes any difference.
FFmpeg and MPlayer developers are still activly working in the issues/bugs - Gamester17 - 2006-10-02 12:46
Sound should be working in 2.0.0, (I think?), are you sure that you did a proper upgrade (did you update the correct default.xbe and mplayer.dll)?, try to a clean install from scratch.
PS! Know that the FFmpeg and MPlayer developers (who develop 'our' codecs/container-format code) are still activly working on the DVR-MS issues together with John Donaghy so it is still in no way 'completly fixed'. You can follow their daily progress in the FFmpeg and MPlayer developers mailing-lists (there are several discussion threads in regards to "DVR-MS" and "ASF" which are released to this):

Thanks! I couldn't tell from the posts if sound was suppose to work. I completely deleted the XBMC folder on the XBOX V1.6 and then loaded the 2.0 then copied my Userdata folder. I will continue to check developement links but this may be a problem specific to Meedio. It seems those that are getting sound seem to be using Media Center. I am not technical enough to know if the codec Medio uses could cause this problem or if it is just how Meedio does the encoding. When I do a graphedit the PC is using PowerDVD 6 for the Audio and Nero for the Video. Seems like I tried to change this once before and ended up having to re-image my machine. I would be interested if one of the Media Center guys could post what codecs their Media Center is using. I do not think it is worth developement time to send a sample since Meedio is defunct now. I need an excuse to buy a new Media Center PC anyway and if this is working for Media Center I just might go that way.

Hi guys, I have a DELL Windows 2005 Media Center PC with a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1300 MCE-Kit
and use XBMC on my 1.4 XBOX with an X3 mod.
First off I would like to say THANK YOU!! to all the XBMC developers.
Just an update on my situation using XBMC 2.0 FAT Version:
4:3 recorded programs, the Video playback is split vertically and part of the righthand side of the video is diplayed on the left.
16:9 recorded programs, the video displays OK
both have audio sycn issues the Audio plays too fast.
Also if I try to FF then I end up back at the XBMC video selection screen.
In the second to last T3CH releases before 2.0 I had perfect video in 3:4 and 16:9 but no audio. Then the last T3CH release prior to the 2.0 release and the 2.0 release I now have the above problems
In earlier T3CH releases I had the video issue with 4:3 recordings and the audio play at the correct speed but was out of sync.
I'm definately not complaining...just giving feedback.
