Please fix sync issue! I took a gamble and surprisingly don't regret it. My sound card died and this was the only option as a literal wireless sound card. You will experience delays! Also, to the creator, PLEASE fix sync and pitch mutations that occur at times. This is an amazing concept but should be free until fixed. A brilliant temporary fix is to open VLC, go to tools/track sync and set it to -1.00 after starting up the show. If it sounds high pitched then have quicktime open too. It fixes it. Cryptic enough for ya?
