[Tom Brooks] "Either it's a little hiccup in the audio, or a skipped frame, or maybe the audio goes out of sync for a short while and I have to stop to get it back again. I'm running an AJA iOExpress with the latest drivers."

Normal for X. I've seen it with every machine and every type of i/o device. Even saw it at official Apple press briefing demos on what should have been an optimized machine (top-of-the-line iMac). Playback from FCP X is generally good, but not as reliable as FCP 7, PProCC or Avid MC. That's why it's called "broadcast monitoring" and NOT "broadcast output" ;-)

The bottom line is that you CANNOT reliably play out of FCP X directly for air or tape recording externally. That being said, make sure you have the most updated drivers for your device and make sure these are installed LAST, after any edit application installations.
