Gotta lot of issues under 4.6 and the only feature that interested me (compared to 4.5) is the ability to work in an uncompressed 720p23.97 timeline which was impossible for me to acomplish. That and the "on the fly" conversion of 720p59.94 footage to 720p23.97.
I recently ended the diabolic process of a complete disk-erase and reinstallation, which tooked me about the whole day.
I'm now running FCP HD with no problem at all. I'm capturing 720p59.94 footage at 1080p23.97 trought FRC conversion
with no problem at all.
4.6 gave me a lot of trouble. The old render issue of 10.2 (splited green canvas screen) appeared back.
By the way and just for asking, do you know which is the right temperature for the cinewave card inside the computer ?
According to the CineWave Manual, the "recommended" operating range is 0º - 40ºC. Mine used to run around 43ºC. in my G4 1ghz DP, until I sat an AC powered boxer fan sitting right on top of the G4. Now it runs around 37ºC.

Sure. First take a look at my hardware and to what software i upgraded to. G4 Dual 1.42 Ghz. 2 GB of RAM, Atto UL3D
1TB of SCSI Raid, Cinewave with HD BOB.
This is what i was using > Cinewave 4.5, Final Cut 4.1, Atto driver 3.10, Apple OS X 10.3.2 and Qtime 6.5.
Everything worked fine for me...No problem at all but i wanted the FCP HD new features. So i upgraded to 10.3.3, QTime 6.5.1, CW 4.6 and FCP HD of course. Then the old issues i used to had with 10.2.8 (some RAM memory related render bugs that turned the canvas frame into a messy pink or green splitted screen) appeared. And it was so constant i had to go back to my old set up, which of course worked out fine. Thar's pretty much my story...are you having some trouble with the upgrade or what ?
