I have not seen this problem posted recently.
We constantly edit to Tape VHS,Hi-8 and DvD's in a Dubbing setup all up 80 plus Program a Month ranging from 4 minutes to 2 1/2 hours in length.
The problem were it stops playing occurs about 4 times a Month on 45 minute and longer length programs,It's very annoying half way into a long program to reset Tapes and DvD's, time lost.
We reboot the Mac Pro before we start Dubbing long Programs,It is connected to an exsan server.
If needed I'll get the Full specs for Mac Pro.
Any help or tips greatly appreciated.
