Audio / Video 10 Seconds Off

Question

Every time I burn a disc, the audio is 8-10 seconds off sync from the video.

 

When I run the movie in Creator before I burn it, the audio/video sync is perfect - so the sync is going bad while burning to DVD.

 

Here is my info:

Roxio Creator 2011 Pro

Dell XPS With Intel i7 3.4Ghz 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1GB DDR5 RAM for video card, 1.5TB HDD 7200 rpm

The process to burn is fast, and my processor monitor shows no more then 40% use distributed over 8 cores.

The original video was from a Sony HD AVCHD Handycam if that matters...

 

I tried burning AVCHD to a Memorex DVD+R. It would not play in my Samsung Bluray player, but it did work in my more expensive LG bluray player - but the audio is 8-10 seconds ahead of the video. I don't know what to fix since the video/audio is perfect in VideoWave prior to burning the disc, and I obviously am not taxing my system too much with this new computer.

 

I also have an internal BluRay burner, I'm going to try to burn a Bluray disc and see if the same thing happens.

First,make sure that your system disc is defragged. I assume that your videos are on the system disc and not an external disc.

 

What else do you have running when you are burning (encoding) the video? There should be nothing including your anti-virus which may be scanning the file as you are encoding and burning it. Try burning (saving) to a folder set or an image (ISO) file. and then use copy and convert to put the video onto the DVD.

 

BTW, Memorex is considered pretty near the bottom of the barrel when it comes to quality. Put the disc in the drive and then from the Roxio Home page, click on tools and then get "disc information". Post the screen shot there.

 

If you are planning to burn a blur-ray disc, make sure you have at least one re-writable to play with.

 

Not all blu-ray players will play AVCHD discs. Check your owners manual of the Samsung for capabilities.

OK, here is some more info:

Yes, videos were transferred to the system disc 1.5TB with 1.2TB free.

Tried burning another HD AVCHD after a system restart, nothing else running, and virus scan disabled - same result.

I then tried saving an image (ISO) file and made a disc from that - same thing, audio off.

I then tried burning a Blu-ray disc on the Blu-ray burner. Only difference is that this disc now plays on all my Bluray players, but is still 8-10 seconds off sync on the audio.

 

Now, I tried burning a regular, standard def DVD - works awesome, players in all my Bluray players (in SD) as a normal DVD.

I then burned a regular DVD with other things running in the background, and my antivirus software on and with active scan - same result, perfect DVD with perfect audio/video sync.

 

So I have discovered that the sync problem is ONLY with attempting to burn in HD, any format.

Did you try to play the iso file on your computer to see if the sync problem occurs in rendering or somehow in the burn process?

 

Good suggestion - I tried it, and I can burn to the hard drive fine with no audio sync problems.

 

So, we have narrowed down the problem to when I choose to output to "My DVD" and select AVCHD or BluRay.

 

One other thing I noticed (don't know if this in normal or not)...

When rendering/writing to DVD I see the preview playing in a small window. When writing to the hard drive or a regular DVD, the preview looks like a fast forwarded version of the show. When writing in a HD format AVCHD or Bluray, the preview video shows a grey text screen with "AVCHD" along the bottom several times through the rendering.

 

HELP!

Any other thoughts on this issue?

 

I amy have missed it but how long in time is the video your are trying to burn?
