This hotfix creates a reference clock configuration that permits audio and video synchronization. Audio and video synchronization is permitted provided that the underlying driver reveals a "ksproxy" audio pin. Contact your driver manufacturer to make sure that the "ksproxy" audio pin is correctly revealed.
