Pinnacle Liquid Pro Have I screwed myself

    I have Pinnacle Liquid Pro. Have I totally screwed myself? I do the video
    for my church. I capture live to PC about 1.5 hours per week. Then bring
    it home and try to do something with it. DVD and VHS tapes. We are
    eventually wanting to rise to a quality level allowing us to go back on
    television. I have problems of audio being consistently about 7 frames
    different from video. Intermittently dropping frames when playing out to
    tape. That really chaps my butt when I get about 50 mins into an hour
    program :) playing out to tape. This is all fixable but it is a real labor
    to fix all the time. The pinnacle website has several beta fixes but none
    of them have solved the problems consistently.

    I have a Intel Pentium 2.6 with an 8586 chipset. 1 gig of ram , about a
    terabyte across 2 each 250 gig SATA's and a couple of 150 gig IDE's

    I was told by the DV shop to change the OS of my PC to XP which I guess I
    could do. (IT's 2k) But I worry about being able to reclaim existing
    projects in the works on raided serial ATA drives.

    Any suggestions?

    Looks like you have enough horsepower - I would go to pinnacle site
    and confirm hardware compatibility. How are drives formatted? -
    hopefully - ntfs -. Also examine what programs are running in the
    background. I've learned the above stuff the hard way - also check
    out wwww.videoguys.com - they had excellent reference stuff (been
    awhile since i've checked).

    Good luck

    You could use the XP Pro (you can't upgrade to Home)upgrade and install to a
    separate partition, allowing you to dual-boot automatically and try XP Pro
    without losing Win 2000. You MUST specify a separate partition during the
    install, as XP will install on TOP of 2000 by default. The partition you
    install to must be made ACTIVE beforehand.
