I own a Panasonic PT-AE7000 for 9 months now and I noticed something very annoying when I am watching a movie from the Apple TV: about every minute, there is a slow motion effect that stays for 1 or 2 seconds (only in the image, sound is always OK). It's not always noticeable but it's there. Although I noticed the same effect from Cable TV, it's much less frequent and noticeable, and appear mostly when an overlay menu is shown. I ruled out the Apple TV as having an issue: I exchanged it twice; bought Apple TV 3 to replace Apple TV 2. It's not a buffer streaming problem (even when the movie is completely loaded I see the same effects). It has nothing to do with the inputs: I tried switching the inputs on my preamp. It's not the HDMI cable: I tried switching them.
And I never saw this bug with DVD/Blu-Ray.
I never had these slow motion problems with my PT-AE2000.
Has anyone else seeing these kind of problems with the Apple TV? Is there something wrong in the processing of the PT-AE7000, in the interaction between the projector and the Apple TV?
