So you must have some conversion from composite/s-video to RF, and that converter must also take in audio. > Regardless, if I was to acquire a TV with audio-in, how could one keep > the video and audio in sync.

You need to either resample the audio (watch the clock and drop/add samples) or resample the video (drop frames or repeat frames). In my apps, I believe in resampling audio and keeping the video smooth, since this is especially important when playing interlaced content to an interlaced TV, while other apps like xine or mplayer, since they output low framerate material to a high framerate (refresh rate) display, always tend to drop or slow the output of the video frames. -- Billy Biggs firstname.lastname@example.org -- Info: To unsubscribe send a mail to email@example.com with "unsubscribe directfb-dev" as subject.
