I don't know if the Linux kernels used for audio-video consumer gear are
used for audio and video processing, perhaps they are just used to
provide menus etc., but since the end of the 90s I never experienced the
good audio and video sync we had with German terrestrial analog
television. All analog and digital satellite and digital terrestrial
receivers I've seen didn't provide acceptable sync. Assumed at least
some of those receiver should do the audio and video processing using
Linux too, a smart solution to fix such issues, not by just providing
fixed delays, but by detecting the exact drift and automatically fixing
it, might be from interest for the consumer gear companies. Perhaps,
they wouldn't care about a smart way to fix it, OTOH for colour
correctness at least Germany cared, so we once upon a time got PAL.
