What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037?tstart=0
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below
For PC http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ or http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en
Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information...
and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline,
which indicates a mismatch between video and project

About editing SD (Standard Definition) MPEG files (or ANY type of compressed file)
Click the http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM Link to My Adobe Notes
Then Click the internal Link Edit Compressed (MPEG/DIVX/etc) Files
Read each one of the items... clicking/Reading ALL of the information Links
(Bottom line... compressed SD files are NOT really suitable to edit in Premiere)
The files are .dvrms and .wtv files recorded by Media Center
You're actually not legally allowed to edit those. Stick to using original media you shot yourself, and you should be OK.
Have you installed the Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.3) update? The recent updates fix some audio/video synch problems.
For one of the bug fixes to be effective, you need to re-index and re-conform the media files (and you can force that by clearing the media cache), since the bug was in the indexing and conforming phase.
I've got some reading to do....thanks for the reply.
Although I have a basic understanding why this occurs in PP, it seems crazy that simple editing programs can accomplish this syncing task and a full bells and whistles professional program can't get this right?
I have updated a few weeks ago, running version 5.0.3.
The information on the file(s) in question using the MediaInfo program:
There is a red line above video in timeline, and my project settings are:
I will attempt to convert my original files to DV AVI Type II and check to see if problem still occurs.
That seems best, as your source material is MPEG2 interlaced and your sequence settings do not match, using DV progressive. Either convert or use the New Item icon at the bottom of the project panel to automatically create a proper sequence.
To match my original file, I cannot find a sequence preset. I have gone in and chosen - Editing Mode as Desktop, from there I am not sure which parameters I need to change/adjust.
Drop your clip on the New Item icon.
and I should use "upper field first"? to match original file?...am I even just a little bit warm?
Ok, I got that bit, that was easy - it does nothing in itself to help with the sync issue.
Do I need to go in and change the sequence properties, go in and change the field properties to "upper field first" to make the output interlaced (like the original file). The rest of the parameters are the same from what I can see.
=> No, doesn't help matters.
Finally got around to encoding the file to a dv avi - which blows out the long file to 80 gigs!
Once the file passes the 90 minute mark, sync starts to go off. The longer in, the worse it gets. So, does not help the sync issue to convert.
I have discovered Power Director and using this - it has no trouble with large mpegs.
Adobe NLE programs (and also Encore) can have issues with some muxed files, and especially with MPEG Audio streams. OOS is frequently a result. This is usually dynamic OOS, so requires more work to fix, than static OOS.
DV-AVI w/ the PCM/WAV Audio stream is usually very good, and few users encounter OOS with those files, though muxed.
Addressing the problems, before Import is always the best course of action, and sounds like where you are now, but should you need to address OOS issues, this ARTICLE might offer some useful tips.
