I am also having audio/video sync problems with latest mplayer, when
watching or recording TV with mplayer or mencoder. The video is delayed.
I am using a PixelView PlayTVPro card.

With mplayer I use the commmand line:

$ mplayer -tv

The problem does not happen with xawtv, and did not happen with
prior versions with mplayer.

Something may have changed in the code of mplayer which is
causing the problem.
