My setup:\nAthlon64 3400+|2.2Ghz|1.5G sdram\nmobo=Asus K8V SE |DVStorm2 pro + Bay on pci slot4\n2 200GB sata|2 250GB IDE (all masters)\nOS=WinXP pro\n\n[This post has been cross posted to Canupos forums as well]\n\nGroup,\nI seem to have hit a snag with a newly purchased canopus DVStorm2.\n\nYes, I have written the Tech staff 2 days ago but not heard back yet.\nYes, I've called them repeatedly over the last 2 days.. (gotten busy\nsignals)\n\nOK, with that out of the way:\nIt seems I may be seeing a Compatibility problem but I can't say for\nsure.\n\nSituatution: Newly installed DVStorm and Edius2.5\nWhen I put a clip on timeline and try to play it in any of several\nways: type <enter> or <spc> or the forward arrow (play) on the right\nhand Preview screen. I get a full bodied crash. First everything\nfreezes including CTRL-ALT-Del, then all visible video disappears. I\nend up with a black screen and total non-responsive keyboard/mouse.\n\nAfter trying this several times I began to see a different result:\nSame freezing crash but video doesn't disappear. Still no\nCTRL-ALT-DEL, but several open Edius windows are still visible.\n\nWhen one starts Edius2.5 you get an opportunity to set some vars. I\nchoose the defaults. Then a chance to select which in/out port to\nuse. I have several onboard 1384 ports and now the DVStorm port.\n\nIf I choose the DVStorm port the above described crash is the result.\nHowever, if I choose an OHCI port. No crash results when playing a\nclip.\n\nI guess this indicates a problem with DVStorm of course, but how can I\ntest things further or know for sure it is incompatable?\n\nCanopus has compatability lists but they are quite ancient. And\ninclude no newer slot 754 equipment like recent athlons.\n\nI found the compat list late in the game but just due to sloth on my\npart. My board is not listed there. It never occured to me to check\nabout hardware compat... probably an indication of my noob status.\n\nSome posters on canopus forums think it is a problem between VIA\nchipset and DVStorm2. This mobo has:\nVIA K8T800\nVIA VT8237\n\nChecking the `My Computer'/hardware screen I see no problems\nindicated. But the only thing I see about DVStorm2 is a listing\nunder: Sound Video and Game Controllers/DVStorm-RT on irq 19.\n\nThat may be normal... not sure. Seems there would be some more stuff.\n\nCan anyone here point me to anything that may help me solve this or at\nleast convince me its unsolvable and get a refund or different equip.
