First, it seems like the dropped frame warning actually does stop dropped frames from showing up. The problem is that the playback is not real-time. When I use a software only preset, it works fine. Also, playback is real time from the monitor.
I'm confused as to why this is still happening. My drives are quite fast enough for 720P DVCPROHD and while I was only up to a week ago still dealing with lockups, a BIOS update took care of that.
Is there something I can check/tweak that will allow me real time playback without this stuttering or speeding up and slowing down of the video?
