Well, this is a $2000 camcorder and a $75 editing program. You're always better using a professional editor (like Premiere Pro) with a professional camcorder.
That said, the specs I've found online say it shoots HDV and DV.
Did you shoot in HDV or DV mode?
If you shot in HDV, have you ensured that your Premiere Elements project was set up for HDV? And did you use Premiere Elements to capture the video?
Yes I shot in HDV and set up the program for HDV and used premier elements to capture the video.

Assuming you aren't seeing red lines above the clips on the timeline until you add effecs to them, I'm not sure why this is happening. It shouldn't. Sorry.
One thing that's not clear is at what point this audio mismatch is occurring.
Is is happening on the timeline, when you play back the video?
Or is it only appearing on the DVD you output?
Does it happen if you Share/Computer/AVI a DV-AVI and play that video in Windows Media Player?
It is happening on the timeline and when I burned the DVD it also happened on the DVD. However, I tested to see if it was the camera by linking the camera to the TV and everything was in sync...so it is not the camera.
It is interesting that when I captured the video in one shot, most of the video was out of sync with the background taping sounds.
I may have done a workaround. I have since captured the video in chunks and found that when I do that the alignment of video and all sound are OK except for a couple of sections of the video.
It appears that when captured all at once, the sections that are out of sync, pollute the remaining parts of the video. It sounds strange, but that it all I can come up with as a rationale. Why? I have no idea.
I don't know. Maybe someone else will have a guess.
