Not at the moment.
Onkyo moderators are giving the runaround saying "We cannot seem the duplicate this problem, please list all of your equipment and how they are hooked up". I dont get it. All they have to do is hook an Edge up to it and see that the BR player is sending in a signal at 23. 9??fps and the 818 is sending that signal out at 24fps, which in turn means that if you have everything set to 24fps, every 40 or so seconds there will be a slight frame skip or frame freeze. Onkyo is really getting some bad publicity for this to. It has been reported as early as July of last year and they have yet to fix it. If they can't, just say so and put it a firmware update that disables 24fps whenever it recieves a 24fps signal. I have this reciever and as long as you use a blu ray player that has 2 HDMI outputs, you can send one to the tv for the image and 1 to the 818 for the audio. Then again, many people bought this reciever for the video processing which Onkyo claimes "The latest and best video processing to date". Sounds like its just a really expensive reciever for audio only. Oh well, I have the 2 HDMI blue ray player so its not really an issue with me.
You can also run your HDMi out from the "Sub out" instead of "Main out" and that will fix it, although you have lost many features when you do that. Still, Onkyo needs to make this right.........Somehow!!
