    ......when capturing with VIRTUALDUB I'm losing one frame every 2 sec
    approx., I don't lose them in blocks (like when drive is fragmented or
    some), the tv signal is OK too! Is it possible that system (win xp) is
    messed up or slowed down a bi?! ( I've done all maintenance, disk check and
    defragmenting)..any ideas...thanx...

    Try using a smaller capture resolution and see if the problem still occurs.

    In news:bjcr3m$mca$, indiana deftly typed:
    You could try upping priority on the capture app to see if other
    application or services running would be conflicting or taking too many
    ressources. To do that, summon the task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL), then
    click on the process tab. Start virtualdub and see what the new process
    is called (probably Virtualdub.exe or something similar); Right click on
    it and set priority to high (avoid realtime as it might hang your
    system). If the problem stops, then you know some other app or service
    is draining your resources and you have to go trough a process of
    elimination to find the culprit, or add more resources.

    What codec do you use?? Directly to divx isn't recommended, uses too much
    cpu and the quality isn't that great.. Try using huffyuv or similar..

  5. Make sure the HDD you are capturing to has DMA enabled.
