With "nosound" it´s okay:
mplayer -nosound -vo mpegpes dvd://1 -dvd-device /dev/dvdram

>If it does, -autosync might help here.
With "autosync" I tried several integer values but it didn´t works, i.e. 
it´s not okay.
E.G.: mplayer -autosync 10 -ao mpegpes -vo mpegpes dvd://1 -dvd-device 

I tried following command "mplayer -ao help" with following information:
Available audio output drivers:
        mpegpes DVB audio output
        oss     OSS/ioctl audio output
        null    Null audio output
        pcm     RAW PCM/WAVE file writer audio output
        plugin  Plugin audio output

Only with parameter "pcm" no wince occurs, i.e. play back is okay.
mplayer -ao pcm -vo mpegpes dvd://1 -dvd-device /dev/dvdram

"nosound" is not an option, because I need sound for watching movies.
"autosync" doesn´t work.
If I use "mpegpes" (output to DVB-Card) the play back works only with wince.

It would be fine to get sound from DVB-Card without wince.
Do someone else has an idea?

Thank you very much.

Best regards.
