I guess this switch only works with files [on disk] and not DVB-T TS streams?

I second this one :)

The biggest problem with my H.264 [Irish DVB-T] stream is A/V sync
problems.  If the video jitters (slows down for a second) then the audio
keeps going.  The mplayer -autosync X switch doesn't seem to work with
H264 which is a pity.  If the A/V problem wasn't there it would be usable.
