On NTSC the audio is work great; are there any plans to clean up the video any more? Quite a few times I get blocking/pixilization using XBMC where I don't get the same when playing back from a PC.

Does the file play ok if you first copy it to the xbox hard drive?

Will test this out, but the xbox is hardwired to a 100mb switch. During the time when sound was cut out completely video was signifigently improved. It was switched back because we lost sound. Those improvements would be nice to have with sound.

I haven't checked this thread recently but am excited to see the interest continue and to get John's help.
I am still on the 2.0 Final Load Slim from I think 10/13 and have problems with the DVRMS files. I have great video but no Audio. It starts out like static then mutes itself in about 30 seconds.
I didn't see anything written about where to save the mplayer.dll file. Is it suppose to be on my PC or on the XBMC? Where should I save it to test it? Does Mplayer work on PCs running WinXP? I would love to test my video on the PC vs the XB.
If I can figure out how to record in HD I will try and upload a sample. I use Meedio to record and do not remember an option on recording in HD but will check tonight.

mplayer.dll should go under E:\<wherever xbmc is on the xbox hard drive>\system\codecs\mplayer\mplayer.dll IIRC. THe audio sync issue is a tough one, if I play it on my Windows MEdia Cneter Extender it seems perfect but in XBMC it lags behind and then slowly keeps getting more out of sync, very odd. The other weird thing is jumping ahead with <timeseekforward> (set to 180 seconds in AdvancedSettings.xml---aka 3 minutes to skip most commericals ) as opposed to fast forwarding doesn't work, it skips to the end of the file instead of going ahead 3 minutes.

E:\<wherever xbmc is on the xbox hard drive>\system\codecs\mplayer\mplayer.dll
E:\<wherever xbmc is on the xbox hard drive>\system\players\mplayer\mplayer.dll
I'm going to try this new version of mplayer.dll out myself sometime tonight and report back

Thanks Anywonder. It took me a little longer to get to this than I expected.
I updated my XMBC to 2.0.1 fat dated 11/13 and then updated the mplayer.dll. I did not get any differenent result. Good picture but static for audio initially then it mutes the sound. I uploded a sample recording to
I also was going to try an HD recording and relized I would need an HD signal which I do not have so I was not able to try that.
Thanks for the help so far.

I got this thanks and it doesnt play for me either - even using mplayer built on Windows from the latest source. mplayer thinks the audio stream is PCM uncompressed which I'm pretty sure is wrong but I dont know why. What software did you use to record this? Also what kind of TV signal are you recording?

black88mx6 - did you get a chance to test this out yet? If it is still a problem I'm interested in trying to figure out what's wrong. Can you post a sample that demonstrates the problem?

Yes, went ahead and put the entire file on the Xbox HD. Still the same issue. The video breaks up every now and then. I would say about 2-3% with different blocks of color. The video captures are large. Over 2gb for 1 hour of video; and when playing you don't see it all the time. When I playback on the computer I don't see it at all, but I will see it in the same spots for playback on the xbox. Will have to try and cut a sample of this, but it happens on all my recorded videos in one place or another.
As mentioned before; it is ok, just not as good as when they switched to the other video player (but broke the sound).
