What do you have under "General Playback (1/9)?

I have the following items checked.

Extra Audio Buffering
Clear saved position on playback
Alternate clear saved position
Jump to Program OSD
Always stream recordings from the backend
Enable picture controls

The checking of "Use video as a timebase", may cause this type of problem.
