Sorry to end the endless stream of praise, but my A30 will occaisionally choke on a standard DVD and lose audio/video sync, by as much as 2 seconds.
This happens when there is a scratch on the disk (I rent from NetFlix). The firmware is current. The only cure is to eject the disk and navigate back through the scene selection to the scene after the defect.
These defective disks can typically be played in my old Panasonic RP-62 (480p over component), where the same defect shows up as a momentary freeze and then playback continues after skipping a frame or two. The PS3 will also freeze at the same spot, and when it recovers it has no audio/video sync issues.
