After a lot of testing, it is obvious that there is a driver conflict with SxS driver.

If uninstalled the 4 finger stuff works and boot is fast.

With it installed boot takes 8-10 minutes. And if you check Activity Monitor there is a task 0 that consumes 100-110% of cpu. This leads to running hot and quick draining of the battery.

It is like you can limp along but it is not right. We need a driver update for new MBP's ASAP.

Does anyone know who to contact at Sony?

Can't say I'm too surprised as this hardware is less than a week in the wild. But I also wouldn't say it's necessary to contact someone at Sony. They have a long working relationship with Apple and so I'm sure they're aware of the problem and an update will come as soon as is humanly possible.

[Noah Kadner] "They have a long working relationship with Apple and so I'm sure they're aware of the problem and an update will come as soon as is humanly possible."

The proof of that is the fact that Sony had all their EX software ready to go for the Mac and Final Cut Pro first and at least a month before the EX1 was even shipping. The creation date on my Clip Browser software is October 10, 2007.

I actually talked to a Sony tech this morning. I sent them my syslog files and profiler xml.

They are working on patch.

They were very interested and helpfull.
