I had a recurrence of the PS3 synch issue again last night. The PS3 is connected via HDMI 1 (DVD). The picture flickered on and off a few times while watching a DVD, but the sound was not interrupted.
I turned off the PS3 and watched the movie using my cheapo DVD player connected via HDMI 2 (HDP), and never saw rthe flicker.
I also had a USB drive attached and on when the flickering happened, and turned that off as well.
The flicker did not happen anymore, however I changed too many variables to be sure what is happening.
The more I think about it, the more I am convinced it is the USB drive, since I have had several other issues with USB (grey screen, lost GUI and USB not being recognized).
By the way, the DVD player was outputting 480P NTSC and being upscaled to 1080p by the receiver and it looked really good. No issues with jaggies or macroblocking that I could tell. Also did really well with a PAL DVD, also 480p. It is an upconvert DVD player, but I haven't tested it at720p->1080p or 1080i->1080p yet.
