Hi all. Life has conspired to keep me away from the forums, but I wanted to ask a question of you fellow 747i owners.
I'd asked once before and I think the question got buried in all the, well deserved, enthusiasm for the set. I'm still loving mine, but I do occasionally run into an audio sync issue when watching SD DVDs. It seems to happen only with PRO LOGIC audio tracks on a DVD, DD5.1 and DTS have not been an issue, but occasionally when I watch an older film that has only a PRO LOGIC track on the disc the audio gets out of synch. It's not consistently ahead or behind and sometimes it synchs up just fine.
I'm playing back my SD DVDs on an Oppo 970HD, using the HDMI output for video to the 747i and the COAX digital out for audio to my Yamaha receiver.
Obviously there are often synch issues when watching OTA HD content, but in those cases I can use the 747i lipsynch feature to compensate. I've also noticed an audio mismatch sometimes when playing back video through XBMC, and in that case I can use the audio delay feature of XBMC to synch up the audio. But I'm really stumped as to how I might fix this problem with SD DVDs and PRO LOGIC, as the audio isn't going to the Olevia and therefore I can't try to sync it.
Techaholic, have you noticed anything like this with PRO LOGIC audio sources coming from your 970HD?
I really love my 747i, but I need to know if anyone else is experiencing this issue. If no one else has noticed this I can only assume there could be something wrong with my set.
