Still present in kodi 18.7

Then file a bug with your firmware provider. Seems they did not implement mediacodec properly :-(
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

I've been chasing this trouble for quite awhile also.
As you say disabling Media codec acceleration stops the loss of A/V sync, but I've also found that if you change
the android setting in preferences/playback to output video from OSD Layer to video layer the trouble changes.
Instead of A/V sync loss the video freezes and the audio carries on for 10 seconds.
Then a resync happens, but 7 minutes and 57 seconds after resync the trouble repeats.
Leaving the android setting at OSD layer the A/V unsync happens at the same 7 minutes and 57 seconds but does
 not reset unless you seek back the video a few seconds.  Then from that point it happens again at the above time interval.
My Leia 18.8 was an overwrite install of Krypton 17.6 which never had this trouble.
I have a X8h with Finless Bob ron 1.0 and a X8H Plus with Minix Lollipop rom both running Leia 18.8.
Neither of these boxes have this trouble.
Just letting you know you're not alone.
