i've run into this sort of problem before and resolved it
by looking at the time data (i can't remember exactly what
it's called but, for each stream, it shows how many 
milliseconds the stream's "clock" is offset from some standard).

if the offset was big, i found that removing that stream
(unchecking it) would allow the other streams to sync
as needed, and it worked (minus the streams i had to
uncheck).  thus, the need for folks to make sure they
have NTP running correctly :)
