I do not use MCE but have never had a problem with crashs on XBMC. Are you trying to play the file that is currently recording? I have never tried that but I still do not get sound on my DVR-MS files recorded with Meedio and haven't had a problem playing a file while Meedio is recording some other program.

Hm, seems to be working now. I don't know why it crashed but it's definitely unpredicatable (usually crashes if I try to "resume video" too)...a/v sync issues maybe this can help? http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mplayer-dev-eng/2006-October/046423.html Too bad it came out after XBMC 2.0 was released
but what can I say it's free and overall I'm very pleased

forgot to add (since we can't seem to edit posts here), sync problems could be b/c of this but I don't really understand what he's saying..
BTW - the file pts value in an ASF file is supposed to be the same for
every segment of the frame but for a dvr-ms file it seems to increase
by 1ms for each segment. Then the pts jumps by a small amount for the
first segment of the next frame - just enough to keep the value near
what it would be if the values were evenly spaced - but never
accurately enough for playback. I've no idea why it does this but
knowing the reason might help. The current code uses the pts in the
first segment of the frame but it could just as well use the last - or
the mid-point. None of these choices seem to be useful for smooth

(again sorry for the triple post but I don't see an edit button)
seems that enabling (checking) "no cache" in the OSD fixes my sync issues. Does anyone know if there's a way to enable this permanently, since I mainly watch dvr-ms files on xbmc?

start a movie, check the no cache option, select set for all video files option in osd.

I just softmoded my Xbox for the first time yesterday and installed XBMC-2.0.0-FINAL-FAT-T3CH. Everything works fantastic except for playing DVR-MS files streaming from my XP Media Center 2005 box.
Unlike exerybody else I have audio but my video is like it's in fast forward.

Since yesterday I have tried a few more releases of XBMC, still with no luck playing DVR-MS files...
XBMC-2.0.0-FINAL-SLIM-FIXED-T3CH: Audio is perfect but Video is in FF
XBMC-CVS_2006-09-24-T3CH: Again audio is perfect but Video is in FF
XBMC-CVS_2006-09-13-T3CH: Video is perfect but no audio
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it but I'm in Australia and we use PAL not NTSC. Seems strange to me that black88mx6 & anywonder can play them and not me so I was thinking that possibly PAL recorded DVR-MS files may differ slightly?

I didnt realize until just now that this thread was going on and that there was really any interest in this. I wrote the patches that make mplayer play dvr-ms and I need samples to help improve it. In particular I'd like some HD samples of at least a minute in length both PAL and NTSC, progressive and interlaced. Not sure how they could be sent - maybe megaupload.com?
If you're interested, the last patch I submitted to mplayer that was accepted should have smooth playback without audio sync problems but may only work on SD recordings. I wont know till I get more samples though. I dont think it's been ported to xbmc mplayer though.
The aspect ratio will stil always be 4:3 even if the file is HD. I might be able to fix this with samples though.
