Playing back a CD in the DVD drive is no problem - perfect audio. But when I tried to playback DVDs (either prerecorded or homemade), same audio distortion and jerky video.
One last test - I tried to record OTA direct to DVD. Seemed to record but when I tried to playback in the unit - same distorted audio and video. But when I took the DVD out and put it in another Panny player, played perfectly.
Reformatted the HDD. Same problem. DVD drive appears to be recording fine. Playback of only audio is fine. But with video (from HDD or DVD), distortion.
Leads me to believe a problem with a digital board rather than one of the drives, but wondering what anyone out there thinks. Has anyone ran into this or have a suggestion? If it's a board, would love to have a part number and try to track down a replacement and try swapping them out myself.
