UPDATE - 12/5/16:
After recently switching from an iMac to a PC, keeping the same game recording hardware, I've discovered that the gameplay footage recorded using the PC RARELY has this audio/video sync issue. This leads me to infer that this problem is more likely to occur when recording from an HDPVR2 GE+ to an iMac (i.e., this problem may only occur when rendering to an m2ts file; PC renders to a ts file). If this is your setup, then I hope you find this tutorial very helpful.
UPDATE – 7/26/16:
I've found that setting the game footage's ***unlinked*** audio speed to 91.87% works nearly every time, WITHOUT having to trim your clips first. Also, a good baseline to go by when fixing the "jump-back" bug is 60 seconds, flat. This is not as consistent, however; be sure to adjust accordingly.
The Hyperkin Retron5 and the Hauppauge HD PVR 2: the perfect pairing for recording your retrogaming footage in crisp, clean HD quality, right? The only problem is, there are known sync issues when playing the file back. You COULD spend more money for additional equipment to solve this problem, OR you could watch this easy-to-follow editing tutorial, in which I show you how to fix it in post-production using your video editing software.
[EDIT] REMEMBER: 91.87%!
If you want to skip the introduction and get right to the tutorial, you can go to 2:22.
To skip ahead to see how to fix that weird bug where the game audio jumps back about 30-60 seconds, go to 16:29.
