It plays fine on my PC, and the audio was fine. When I brought up the codec screen, the Crystal HD card looked to be in use, but just unable to keep up.
Seems that MPEG-2 support from Crystal HD is not complete, and apparently there is little motivation to fix it as everything can be re-encoded to H.264 right !
If you device has enough horse power (not an Apple TV) you can probably configure it not to use the CrystalHD for MPEG-2 and have it software decoded...if you like me have an ATV 1.1 you are likely hosed.
When you downloaded, was it from a TiVO per chance ?
