I've got several M100 XR suites, all similarly configured. We've always worked in 640, but Floh and others have repeatedly said to edit in 720, it's superior. About a month ago, we started working with one of our suites in 720 and we're having a problem. The program will play fine for a while, then the video will start to stutter (the audio continues just fine). Then the video freezes and the audio continues playing unaffected. We have several projects that we've cut on this suite in 720 and we're unable to successfully dub any of them, because at some point in the program they all do this. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have a bandwidth issue.
Welcome to troubleshooting 101.
Trash Prefs-restart
How full is the drives? Try dumbing some stuff.
Try running the media off another drive.
Try running the program with some video/audio/grfx off
Turn off all tracks but one video track, does it still crash? Build up from there.

And many, many, more choices.
As the Cow says, you need to fill out your profile, I can't give any more specifics because I don't know OS, Versions, Drives, Data Rate, etc, etc,

Having been responsible for running 4 Media 100 systems, you shouldn't be having problem just because you moved to 720? Again, it's hard to comment without more info.

Good Luck,

What is your boardset? Exact version of Quicktime and M100 software? Which OS? We also had odd problems on one boardset that was not the P6000...tried new drives everything. We thought it was a conflict because we updated Quicktime to 5 from 4. Can't recall if going back to QT4 fixed it. It was a bugger of a problem however, and we feel your pain!
