I'm sure if you lookfor it you'll find the same issue. Just keep rewinding and letting a panning scene play it'll do it eventually. Like I said I think it's normal lag I was just shocked to see some.
I have been having this exact same issue. On the DVD for the movie "Elite Squad' if you have your DVD player set to 1080p24 output with the disc's subtitles turned on, this becomes the greatest demonstration of the problem (the frame drop/frame skip issue runs rampant).
About two weeks ago, I shipped off my 707 to the area service center. Unfortunately for me, the service center says that service work can sometimes take up to a month.
The service center also informed me that a firmware update is available for the 707, but they weren't sure what issues it addressed.
On this forum, there have been about three or four others with the problem like we are having.
I hope to get my 707 back soon so I can see if the service center actually fixed this annoying bug in the receiver.
I think I'm also going to send a detailed description of this problem to Onkyo via their website. They need to be fully aware that this issue is cropping up in the field, even if it only seems to affect a small number of users.
