The usual culprits here are various video "enhancement" settings -- which should usually be avoided anyway. If you've turned any of those on recently, that too could be your problem.
Definitely had the 1080p/24 output activated on the older firmware, when I was not noticing any sync problems.
Definitely don't have any video enhancements activated on the display. I'm a purist; I actively like the "judder" of 24-frame playback and would never use any frame creation technology to get rid of it.
As a purist and a bit of a film historian, I'll be pretty upset if I have to watch my blu-rays at anything other than 24fps. What's more: the Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector has a pretty solid reputation at delivering 24fps, so I'd be surprised if it was the culprit--especially since I'm able to get the material to sync up perfectly after pausing or pressing the "rewind" button. In fact, the more I think about it, the more it sounds like a player issue to me. If it were the projector, it seems like the delay would be a constant and the material wouldn't magically fall into sync after pausing or "reviewing".
Hmm. I may play around with 60fps when I have some time. Or maybe I'll just wait until the problem becomes unbearable; right now, it's just a few titles and the rest play perfectly. I guess I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed this same kind of "sliding sync" with their blu-rays and the latest firmware.
