I have also had this problem for months now, and is the reason I stopped using xine.  The audio is about 0.4 - 0.5 seconds behind on mine as well.  Mplayer and the myth internal player are both fine.  A cool band-aid would be to have a command-line argument instead of having to press the m and n keys (I don't mind pressing the keys, but my wife finds it quite annoying if you know what I mean).

I am having a problem with DVD audio sync since I upgraded to Xine
1.1.2. It seems that the audio is about 1/2 sec behind the video since
I upgraded. Several people on the Gentoo and FC5 forums have reported
this issue, and there is an SF.net bug, 1544349 entered that seems to be
the same. I cannot find any indication that the Xine developers are
aware of the issue though. I have been using Xine for about 6 years now
and I am surprised that something like this has slipped in, as A/V sync
has not been an issue for me for many years.

I can get rid of the lag by pressing the m key in xine-ui about 4
times, however there is no option for this that I can find in my
preferred frontend, Kaffeine...

I am running Gentoo 2006.1, with xine-lib-1.1.2-r2 (from portage), on a
2.8 Ghz P4 with binary Nvidia 8774 drivers for my 6800GS, SB Live 5.1
(using alsa) Kernel 2.6.15, 1GB Ram.

Has anyone else seen this problem or have fix for it?
