Hi peterjcat, no, I was using XviD as the format, with AVI as the container. Interestingly, when I got up this morning and looked at the version of the entire file that I transcoded with EXACTLY the same settings as the 2 and 5 min ones, the audio's about 2 seconds behind the video. Damnit. So, it must be the BW, me thinks. I am converting half of the entire file now and will see what it does tonight when I get home.
Like Neon Kitten, I am hanging out for direct Matroska support!

Seems to work fine, but takes over 4 hours to convert a 45 minute program.

Just in case anyone else is interested, I have been persevering and persevering with this one and think I've found the solution. I'm just converting a 2.2GB file, so will know when I've done it but the answer seemed to be the following:
When using MediaCoder (latest version is 0.6.0 build 3980) untick the 'Frame Rate' option on the 'Picture' tab. I found that hint on the MediaCoder forum.
The other settings that I use are to leave the 'Audio' tab alone (select 'Copy Audio') and choose 'Quality Based' at 90, with the 'Format' of XviD and a container of AVI. The rest is left at default.
Finally, it would appear, I get audio in sync with video, even with big files (touch wood).

Well done Simon! Thanks for the tip.

No loss of sync and looked good. You could then if you wish convert the VOB file to AVI or any other format.
