I don't know if iMovie has a feature to adjust audio sync but there is a freeware app called QT Sync that does this. In the future choose the Medium Quality setting when capturing the video to avoid the audio sync problem. You won't see any loss in picture quality.

I have the same problem. When I capture my VHS video using High Quality and record for over 1 hour, the sound and video do not match up. I would say they are about 3 or 5 seconds off after an hour. I have tried different VHS players and different cables, and I am positive that this is not a problem with my computer or VHS player. I purchased the product so that I can get the highest quality conversion, and now I need to use Medium Quality for all of my conversions. When I use Medium Quality, everything seems fine. Again, why do you sell the VHS to DVD for Mac product when it has such an obvious defect and nobody can use the default High Quality setting if they want the video and audio to match? Is there any fix for this or anything that I can do to record in High Quality as intended? When will there be a fix for this?

We're users like yourself, not developers. "We" aren't the ones you're buying it from. All we can do is let you know the workarounds we're aware of. You'll want to contact Roxio directly to look for other answers, like when or if there'll be a fix for audio/video sync at High Quality.

 

Another workaround is to record in smaller clips, say, 5-10 minutes at a time, and then put them together when you author the DVD. You'll still get some syncing issues, but by capturing in smaller chunks, it won't be as bad, and will "re-sync" with each clip. Not elegant, but better than nothing.
