Exception: SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT

Hi there,

I am experiencing this issue. Running Media Composer 6.0.1 on Lion 10.7.2, I am AMA'ing some P2 AVCHD footage and come across this error message every few minutes. It doesn't crash the system, but is quite annoying. This is from the Avid console after the error message comes up...

PlayerHostThread::CheckForExceptions: Exception: SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT

Exception caught in APlayer::Play - Exception: SFPlayConsumer::Execute TIMEOUT

ERROR: VDM3BOBVideoOut::Cleanup() - BOB has not displayed frame after 2000 ms! (enabled = true)

mDefaultImageBounds.mNumFields == 0; sfo set to false

This problem has started coming up after a clean install of Lion and Avid MC 6.0.1. Before, when I upgraded 5.5 to 6, and then to 6.0.1, I did not have this problem.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I really wish Avid would make error messages make sense so that we as editors are able to actually properly troubleshoot them.

I ran into this answer:

(Try turning off Fast Scrub in the Timeline Settings, also be sure your AVCHD plug-in is installed/up to date)

I've had this error also but under different circumstances (the things listed in this article didn't help me in my case). Mine was "A serious error has occurred." Restart the sytem immediately, blah blah blah. The timeout error appeared for me in the Record Window.
